B/R Consensus Pick: Cardinals (8-4)
Schottey: Cardinals, 21-6
These two teams are still looking for an offensive boost. Expect a bunch of momentum-shifting interceptions, fumbles, etc. as the teams trade punches. In the end, I love the Cardinals' opportunistic defense against a rookie QB in his first game.
Bowen: Cardinals, 24-14
Tough to pick the Bucs with Mike Glennon making his first start as a pro. Can the rookie read pressure? Can he handle a muddy pocket? Can he adjust to the speed of the regular season? Too many questions for me. I'm taking the Cards and veteran quarterback Carson Palmer.
Schalter: Cardinals, 17-10
The Buccaneers haven't played as badly as their record indicates, but the Cardinals' stout run defense will shut down Doug Martin. With Glennon in at quarterback, I don't see the Buccaneers moving the ball at all.
Freeman: Cardinals, 25-13
The benching of Josh Freeman won't matter. Freeman is a symbol of a larger problem which is the Bucs just aren't that good on offense. The Cardinals defense takes advantage.
Miller: Cardinals, 20-10
No commentary due to paternity leave.
Frenz: Buccaneers, 17-10
There's no guarantee that Mike Glennon will be any better than Josh Freeman out of the gate, but the breath of fresh air at the game's most important position could help, as long as the Buccaneers defense can contain Larry Fitzgerald.
Hangst: Cardinals, 20-13
Greg Schiano finally has the quarterback he wants on the field, with Mike Glennon taking the place of the benched Josh Freeman. But is that enough to win this game? The problems the Buccaneers have aren't going to be fixed in one week by a quarterback switch. The Cardinals are the more consistent team, and this will be enough to earn them a hard-fought road win.
Hansen: Buccaneers, 23-17
Although the Cardinals have a strong run defense, Doug Martin is too talented to continue to put up average numbers. You couldn't be much worse than Josh Freeman through three weeks, so Mike Glennon may actually give this offense the shot in the arm it needs. I expect Tampa Bay to come through and avoid falling to 0-4.
Bardeen: Cardinals, 13-7
Arizona is pretty good against the run, meaning Doug Martin might be neutralized. Mike Glennon's a rookie quarterback who's only seen three NFL games, all from the sideline. If Arizona takes Martin away, Tampa Bay can't win.
Gagnon: Buccaneers, 20-17
The Bucs aren't very good, but they fell just short against the Jets and Saints to open the year. This is Mike Glennon's first career action, but you can't do much worse than Josh Freeman anyway. Back at home, I think they take care of a Cardinals team that has lost nine straight road games.
Langland: Buccaneers, 17-16
Will Mike Glennon be the one to finally get the Buccaneers offense headed in the right direction? I say yes, yet the rookie signal-caller won't be able to do it alone. He will need to lean on Doug Martin late in the game to put the Cardinals away.
Kruse: Cardinals, 16-10
Tampa Bay is difficult to watch on offense. There's no reason to think Mike Glennon, a rookie third-round pick, will magically turn things around.
