Two of the best young teams in the National Football League are set to square off on Sunday for a huge Week 10 matchup. The 5-3 Arizona Cardinals will host the 7-2 Buffalo Bills in a matchup of two likely playoff teams.
Arizona had won three straight games before a Week 9 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Cardinals sit in a tie for second place in the NFC West and have a chance to reach the playoffs.
Buffalo has now won three straight games to take control of the AFC East. The Bills were a playoff team a season ago, and they are looking like a Super Bowl contender in 2020.
The Arizona Cardinals are slim 1.5-point favorites over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

Bills Need More Balanced Offense
The Buffalo Bills are averaging 277 passing yards per game, but they are only averaging 100 rushing yards per game. Quarterback Josh Allen has taken over this offense, but the Bills need to run the football more effectively moving forward.
Allen recently won his second AFC Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for more than 400 yards in Week 9. The young QB has thrown for nearly 2,600 yards, but the Arizona defense will be looking to come after him in this matchup.
Buffalo also needs to find more defense after allowing close to 26 points per game. The Bills do have 24 sacks as a team in 2020, and they will be coming after Kyler Murray in this one.
Cards Defense Playing Well
The Arizona Cardinals are known for their “Air Raid” offense, but it has been the defense that has led the way this season. Arizona is allowing just 22.5 points per game, making them a top-10 defense.
The Cardinals did allow 34 points in a Week 9 loss, and that unit will need to bounce back on Sunday.
On the offensive side of the ball, Murray has the Cardinals averaging almost 30 yards per game. Murray recently became the first quarterback in league history with 2,000 passing and 500 rushing yards through the first eight games of the season.
Wide receiver D’Andre Hopkins leads the team with 60 receptions for 734 yards, and he will play a huge role in this game. Arizona wants to score, and they want to score fast.

Arizona Snaps Bills’ Winning Streak
