Kyler Murray isn’t the only Cardinal the Eagles have to limit on offense.

Kliff Kingsbury was hired as the Arizona Cardinals head coach on January 8th of 2019 despite crafting a sub-.500 coaching record at the NCAA level (35-40). On March 2nd of 2022, he signed a six-year extension through 2027. Some asked what he did to deserve it.

Make no mistake about it though. For an ‘offensive genius’, he has minimal room for error. Kyler Murray was his choice, and when DeAndre Hopkins returns from suspension, this offense has no excuses for faltering. Then again, they really don’t have an excuse now with the guys they have.

Zach Ertz, tight end

You recognize this guy don’t you? In 2021, Jonathan Gannon’s defense struggled to limit great tight ends. They’ve been better in 2022. Zach Ertz provides another test. Expect him to be at his best versus the team he made his name with.

Marquise Brown, wide receiver

Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown has been inconsistent at times, but you always need to know where he is. He’s one of those guys that can change a game’s momentum (and scoreboard tally) on any given play.

James Conner, running back

James Conner should be called The Terminator. He leads the Cardinals in rushing yards (145). He’s fourth on the team in both receptions (13) and receiving yards (95).

Kelvin Beachum, right tackle

The left tackle protects the blind side of right-handed quarterbacks. The right tackle, in most cases, is the man charged with keeping Haason Reddick from getting home to wreak havoc. Watch Kelvin Beachum in Week 5.

Greg Dortch, wide receiver

While Greg Dortch isn’t the owner of a household name like A.J. Green, DeAndre Hopkins, or Hollywood Brown, he’s equally as dangerous. He’s third on the team in receptions (21), second on the team in receiving yards (204), and he’s scored one touchdown on the campaign. The Eagles will look to avoid allowing him to score a second.
