The Cleveland Browns will look to get a win over the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. A win over the Cardinals this weekend is not going to be easy. That is especially the case if the Browns keeps playing the way they have through seven weeks and Arizona continues to play like one of the best in the NFL.

The 2015 season for the Cleveland Browns has been disappointing. At 2-5 on the season, the Browns have a number of issues. They have a beat up starting QB, another QB who cannot stay out of the media, an overrated defense, sloppy offensive line play, no drive and no identity. Cleveland is in panic mode.

Browns HC Mike Pettine is coaching for his job and QB Josh McCown is expected to start Sunday, but that is not guaranteed yet. Their great defense also has looked anything but lately. Simply put, the Browns have been a hot mess.

Meanwhile, on the other side of our great country are the Arizona Cardinals and they are on top of the NFC West at 5-2. QB Carson Palmer looks great so far and WR Larry Fitzgerald looks almost as if he’s back in his prime.

Their running game is doing well and they have one of the most turnover heavy defenses in the NFL with CB Patrick Peterson, S Tyrann Matthieu and LB Dwight Freeney leading that side of the ball.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know where I am going with this. I am predicting the Arizona Cardinals to win on Sunday and here are five reasons why.
