Cardinals Still the Top Over Team in NFL

Carson Palmer Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals offense has been absolutely ridiculous this year, which has caused the OVER to go a perfect 5-0 on the season so far. The Cardinals will look to continue their offensive circus when they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Steelers are 12-5 SU in their past 17 games at Heinz Field.
  • Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has officially been ruled out (Knee).
  • The Cardinals are 2-8 SU in their past 10 road games in October.

Arizona has averaged a staggering 38 points per game so far this season, tops in the NFL, and have scored more than 40 points in three of their five games. Quarterback Carson Palmer is putting together one of the best seasons of his long career with a 114.0 QBR and 13 touchdowns with just three interceptions.

It was close, but the Steelers managed to walk away with a win on Monday night last week. Running back Le’Veon Bell scored a walk-off touchdown against the San Diego Chargers to cap off his 111 yards rushing performance.
