Mike and Ed take a look at what it will take to ground the Cardinals, and improve to 1-1 on the season in a seemingly must-win game for the Vikings.

Bengals Debrief

  • Not a great game penalty wise
  • Kirk Cousins missed some obvious throws
  • Klint Kubiak slow start as offensive coordinator - anomaly or trend?
  • Defensive backs had a rough day at times - can Mike Zimmer coach them up in time to stop Kyler Murray and friends?


  • Offensive line must improve
  • Rashod Hill with a tough test against a surging Chandler Jones
  • Garrett Bradbury bullrushed to oblivion - needs to get better quick
  • Vikings Defensive line had a solid outing - need to repeat and build
  • Michael Pierce showing why we signed him ahead of 2020

Offense, not Defense

  • Offense, not Defense will be required to beat Arizona
  • Interior pressure will help Danielle Hunter get after Kyler Murray
  • Defensive backs should play better given Mike Zimmer’s history of adjustments after down games

Special Teams

  • One game in and the special teams appears to be on pace for all-pro status
  • Greg Joseph with cleats of steel - can it continue?
  • Special teams play a must to flip fields and give Cousins and Co. a chance
