Arizona's weaknesses have been exposed this season. It starts with a leaky secondary. The young cornerbacks have been downright abused this season.
The picture in this slide is Santana Moss catching an 18-yard touchdown pass on a fourth-down play with 5:17 remaining in the game.
That kinda stuff can't happen.
The way to take the pressure off of the secondary is to get a strong pass rush on the quarterback. Getting pressure on Sam Bradford will disrupt the Rams' passing attack, which will de-emphasize the struggling Cardinal secondary.
Arizona's other weakness is the offensive line. There's no hope there unless the Cardinals can use two offensive lines. Then they may be able to protect the quarterback.
I would suggest screen passes and hot reads, but I don't have much confidence in either. The wide receivers have a hard time catching a cold. The only hope would be a few screens to Larry Fitzgerald, but the defense will catch on after a couple.
Expect Levi Brown and the rest of The Matadors to give up at least three sacks and cause a few three-and-outs. No way to de-emphasize the lack of talent that resides on the Cardinal offensive line.
