As we enter Week 6 of the NFL one thing is certain, the Cardinals are an amazing team. They remain as the league’s last undefeated team and plan to keep it that way. Led by QB Kyler Murray, this team looks like a frontrunner for the NFC Championship. They’ve had tough competition all year and prepare for another test, the Cleveland Browns.

The Cleveland Browns are coming off a close loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. They’re currently 3-2 and tied for second place in the AFC North. A win over the Cardinals would definitely boost them up in the division. More importantly, they’d be able to say they were the team that handed the Cardinals their first loss.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Cleveland Browns Preview (NFL Week 6)

The Cardinals are incredible this year, but not just on offense. Their defense has been giving opposing teams nightmares from the start of the season. Chandler Jones is having a career year and J.J. Watt has done a lot to help. They’ll need a strong defense as they prepare to face the Browns rushing attack.

The Cardinals have an attack of their own though designed to overwhelm secondaries. This all starts with Kyler Murray, who has the ability to beat you with his arm and his legs. He’s a highly intelligent mobile quarterback, similar to Patrick Mahomes. He’s also got the wide receivers to back him up.

It sounds simple, but it’s something the Browns abandon often. Last week they got into a shootout with the Chargers, which was a bad idea. However, the week before that, when they played the Vikings, is exactly what they need to do. They ran for nearly 200 yards on the ground and won the game 14-7.

They controlled the time of possession with ease and didn’t allow the Vikings offense to move an inch. This is the game plan they should go with against the Cardinals. If they limit the Cardinals possessions, they’ll have a much better chance of winning. However, they can’t get too stagnant, otherwise, the Cardinals will pick up on it.

Cardinals vs. Browns Money Line Pick

Cardinals 27 - Browns 24

The Browns are a good team and a good match for the Cardinals. Their rushing attack could be considered the best in the league right now. If they focus on what they do well, they could walk away with this one. However, we believe that the Browns will be baited into a shootout against the Cardinals.

This shifts the tide in favor of the visiting Arizona Cardinals. A fast-paced game is exactly what the Cardinals will want on Sunday. That being said, the Cardinals come in as the underdog because they’re on the road. Good news for bettors though, as we expect the Cardinals not only to cover but to win the game.

Extra Points

1. The Cardinals are 4-1 ATS in their last five games.

2. The Arizona Cardinals are 5-1 in their last six games against Cleveland.

3. These two teams last played in 2019 where the Cardinals won 38-24.

Best Bet: Arizona Cardinals ML (+128)

Arizona Cardinals vs. Cleveland Browns Recap OCT 17TH 2021

The Arizona Cardinals remained the lone unbeaten team in the NFL by rolling past the host Cleveland Browns 37-14 on Sunday.

Kyler Murray completed 20 of 30 passes for 229 yards and four touchdowns and DeAndre Hopkins hauled in a pair of scores as the Cardinals (6-0) cruised despite the absence of head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who missed the game to COVID-19 protocol. It was the Cardinals' fifth straight win against the Browns (3-3).

Cleveland, which dropped its second straight, entered the game reeling from injuries and got more bad news throughout.

The Browns played without lead running back Nick Chubb and starting tackles Jack Conklin and Jedrick Wills Jr. During the game, quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder), wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) and running back Kareem Hunt (calf) all sustained injuries. Hunt did not return after his injury early in the fourth quarter.

Mayfield finished 19 of 28 for 234 yards and two touchdowns, but had three turnovers -- two fumbles and an interception -- and sat out the final five minutes. Donovan Peoples-Jones had four catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns.

The Browns had rushed for 150 or more yards in each of their first five games, but were held to 73 rushing yards on 19 carries. Cleveland finished with nine penalties for 88 yards and gave up five sacks.

Mayfield lost his second fumble of the day and J.J. Watt picked up his first sack of the year on the same play in the third quarter. The Cardinals cashed in the turnover with Murray's 9-yard touchdown to Hopkins for a 30-14 lead.

Cleveland tried to answer, but a fourth-down pass from the Arizona 7-yard line was dropped by Beckham with 12:06 remaining.

Murray threw his fourth TD with 4:48 left on a 14-yard strike to A.J. Green.

The Cardinals dominated the first half and scored on each of their five possessions, but settled for a modest 23-14 lead at the break. Murray found Christian Kirk with a 21-yard touchdown pass to cap the first series, then dropped in a 13-yard score to Hopkins for a 14-0 lead with 14:49 left in the half.

Mayfield's first sack-fumble and his interception to Arizona's Robert Alford resulted in Matt Prater field goals of 36 and 51 yards for a 20-0 Cardinal lead with 9:29 left.

Mayfield got Cleveland on the board with an 11-yard touchdown to Peoples-Jones while Arizona added a third Prater field goal, from 33 yards out with 46 seconds left.

But Cleveland ended the half with Mayfield's 57-yard Hail Mary that People-Jones hauled in to cut the margin to 23-14 at the break.
