The Arizona Cardinals were an early -3 favorite hosting the Green Bay Packers Thursday night October 28.  We do not see this line changing much as both teams host NFL bottom feeders in Week 7. Gambling911.com has a line of Arizona -4.

Arizona was hoping to improve to 7-0 for the first time since 1974 by beating the Texans.  They failed to cover only once this season ahead of Week 7.  Green Bay had covered in all of their games following that Week 1 dud against New Orleans but were seeing greater than 80% of the public backing as an 8-point favorite versus WFT.  Gambling911.com had Washington covering.

The Cardinals were able to win against Cleveland Browns 37-14 in Week 6 despite missing several key pieces, including head coach Kliff Kingsbury, quarterbacks coach Cam Turner, linebacker Chandler Jones, and defensive linemen Zach Allen and Corey Peters, all of whom were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive, despite being fully vaccinated.


It's unclear how many of them will be able to return for the Texans game. Even if they can't be on the field, Watt said the win over the Browns proves the Cardinals can handle adversity.

"That shows how you can't be too reliant on one thing or another," Watt said. "Your head coach goes down, you have to have people willing to step in, ready to step in and capable."

Since throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns in the Packers' season-opening loss, Rodgers has returned to his usual form. The three-time MVP has 12 touchdown passes and only one interception during the Packers' winning streak.

Rodgers is benefiting from Davante Adams' continued rise. Adams has followed up his 2020 All-Pro season by leading the NFL in yards receiving (668) and sharing the NFL lead in catches (46).
