Kyler Murray, Cardinals Look to Continue Undefeated Season

Plus, unbeaten Bulls take on Thibs and the Knicks, and more NBA action.

For the second straight night, we had a World Series game that wasn’t overly competitive in the late innings. Just as the Braves jumped on Houston early in Game 1, the Astros got to Max Fried in the first two innings of Game 2 to even the series at one game apiece.

While today is a day off in the Fall Classic, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of action tonight to sink your teeth into. Perhaps the best Thursday Night Football game of the year is on, plus the resurgent Bulls take on the Knicks, and much more.


Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals


What a treat of a Thursday-night matchup this is. The Cardinals have been, without question, the best team in the NFL through seven weeks. Kyler Murray has been the league’s best QB, leading an offense that has scored 30 or more points in all but one game this season. It’s been such an incredible start for Arizona that our own Conor Orr had to officially acknowledge just how far off he was on the Cardinals entering the season in this week’s MMQB Power Rankings.

That said, this week will be a stiff test. The Packers’ defense has played much better lately, and Aaron Rodgers is still doing Aaron Rodgers things. Plus, the Pack get to attack a Cardinals defense without J.J. Watt, who is reportedly out for the remainder of the season after a shoulder injury.

Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards

The Wizards are near the top of my list of League Pass teams through four games of this young NBA season. On paper, this looks something like a roster of misfits, with several key pieces shoved together from the Lakers’ dumping salary in the Russell Westbrook trade. But the Wizards are feisty! Montrezl Harrell plays harder than, well, anyone. Bradley Beal and Spencer Dinwiddie are getting buckets at a high level. This team is fun and looks like a playoff contender so far. Let’s see how they match up tonight against another likely playoff team, in Trae Young and the Hawks.
