NFL Overreaction Monday: Cardinals, Cowboys, Dolphins

  • The Arizona Cardinals may be real Super Bowl contenders in the NFC after their big win.
  • The Dallas Cowboys’ odds have moved from +3300 to +1600 in Super Bowl futures.
  • The Miami Dolphins need to trade for Deshaun Watson as soon as possible.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Another Sunday of the NFL is in the books and with it comes plenty of overreactions to be made. This time around the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, and Miami Dolphins have fallen victim to these knee-jerk reactions.

The Arizona Cardinals Are The Best Team In The NFL

After last week the overreaction to be made was that the Los Angeles Rams were the best team in the NFL with their win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But now, the Arizona Cardinals have beaten the Rams. To be THE BEST, you have to beat the best, right? NFL betting sites don’t label Arizona as the favorite yet, but they're close to it.

  • Before Week 4 +2800
  • After Week 4 +1200

Now sitting with the fifth-shortest odds of any team, the Cardinals will have a target on their backs. The teams' upcoming schedule contains San Francisco, Cleveland, Green Bay, Carolina, and Seattle all in the next seven weeks. Those looking to bet on Arizona to win the Super Bowl may want to wait as their odds will likely get longer after a loss or two.

The Dallas Cowboys Are Back?

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1995 and haven’t made the playoffs in consecutive years since 2006-2007. It’s been a rough stretch for America’s team but this could finally be the year where they make a run at the title. Their convincing win over the Carolina Panthers shortened their futures odds pretty significantly.

  • Before Week 4 +3300
  • After Week 4 +1600

Online sportsbooks acknowledge the improvement of the Cowboys but maybe haven't taken into account their road to the playoffs. The NFC East is thought to be the worst division in the NFL which should secure a playoff appearance for Dallas.

Plus, they had the second-easiest strength of schedule entering the season and could very well make a push for a first-round bye.

The Miami Dolphins Need Deshaun Watson Quickly

Sure, Tua Tagovailoa is currently out and it may be unfair to judge the team based on their backup quarterback. However, the injury concerns for Tagovailoa have to be piling up for the Miami Dolphins front office. Not only has he been forced to miss games multiple times in his young career, but he’s admitted to never being the same post injuries.

The solution? To trade for Deshaun Watson. He’s just 26-years-old and is on contract for at least three years.  He’s also the reigning NFL passing yards leader from last season. The asking price may be steep (multiple first and second-round picks) but the Patriots’ 20-year dynasty is finally over, Miami needs to take initiative in the AFC East.
