Cardinals 2021 Season Preview

Through nine games, the 2020 Cardinals seemed on their way to ending a five-year playoff drought.

Then, in a Thursday-night tilt with the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Kyler Murray appeared to suffer an injury to his throwing shoulder, and the team subsequently fell in the standings. According to Murray, however, he initially hurt the shoulder two weeks earlier, then exacerbated the ailment against Seattle.

“It happened against the Dolphins,” Murray said, according to ProFootballTalk. “I don’t know if you saw, I ran into a dude like third and long, one of the downs, whatever, that started it off. Then the Seahawks game I landed on it first drive. That’s kind of when it really started.”

Though he finished that game and started the rest of the season, his play suffered and so did the team’s record — they dropped five of their last seven to finish the year 8-8.

Murray finished the season, his second in the NFL, having completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,971 yards and 26 touchdowns, with 12 interceptions. He added 819 yards and 11 scores on the ground.

This time around, he’ll have the benefit of three-time Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson, whom the team acquired from the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for a third-round pick.

“We did not expect him to become available and when he was, we were thrilled,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury said, according to AZCardinals.com. “With his experience, with a young quarterback, to have a veteran center to have played the games he’s played, and at the level he played at, we thought it was a home run for us.”

Despite Murray’s injury, the Cardinals offense amassed more yards from scrimmage than all but five teams.

The Cardinals defense ranked near the middle of the pack, surrendering the 13th-fewest yards. The unit then lost key contributors in cornerback Patrick Peterson and linebackers Haason Reddick and De’Vondre Campbell over the offseason.

To compensate for the trio’s defections, the team signed a pair of veteran stars in defensive end J.J. Watt — a three-time defensive player of the year — and Pro Bowl cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Watt was already familiar with Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. From 2011 to 2013, Joseph served as a defensive backs coach for the Houston Texans, Watt’s old team, under Wade Phillips, who inspired much of Joseph’s defensive system.

“He’s played in this system before so we know he knows it,” Kingsbury said, per AZCardinals.com. “Just his intensity, his focus, his attention to detail will be great, for our defense and our entire team.”
