Overreaction Monday Week 16: Cardinals, Burrow, Chargers

  • The Arizona Cardinals have now lost three straight games after holding the NFL’s best record.
  • Joe Burrow quietly had the fourth-most passing yards of all time this weekend.
  • The Los Angeles Chargers suffered an embarrassing loss to the Houston Texans.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - With another NFL Sunday in the books, morse overreactions are to be made.

The Arizona Cardinals lost again this week, now making it three straight losses. What was once a 10-2 team is now a 10-5 team with an outside shot of winning their own division. Plus, NFL betting sites expect them to lose again next week.

Cardinals vs Cowboys Spread Odds

  • Arizona Cardinals +5.5 -110
  • Dallas Cowboys -5.5 -110

The Cardinals were averaging 35 ppg through the first four weeks, 30.5 ppg the following four weeks, 24.3 ppg the next four and now just 17 ppg the three most recent weeks. The offense has steadily been getting worse the entire season which is not a good look heading into the postseason.

Joe Burrow: Fourth-Most Passing Yards Of All Time

Joe Burrow quietly had the fourth-most passing yards of all time in his Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He threw for 525 yards which everyone knows is impressive, but may not know just how high it ranks in the record books.

Comeback Player of the Year Odds

  • Dak Prescott -625
  • Joe Burrow +700
  • Nick Bosa +800

Burrow has long odds to win Comeback Player of the Year honors but could be closing the gap more than people think.

Although those betting on the NFL find Dak Prescott as the favorite, Burrow is the one who has more passing yards, passing touchdowns and a higher QBR. He may be the one deserving of the award coming off of his torn ACL.

Los Angeles Chargers: Embarrassing Loss To Houston

The Los Angeles Chargers were thought to have an easy win against the Houston Texans but ended up losing 41-29. Los Angeles has now lost two straight games.

Sportsbooks do expect the Chargers to get back on track next week as they are 6-point favorites against the Denver Broncos.

With the last two games of the season being against divisional opponents, their chances of making the playoffs rely on their performance. However, the team clearly hasn’t been playing up to their standards as of late which could result in a disappointing end to the season if things don’t change quickly.
