Arizona’s Ball-hawking Secondary
Arizona is the next great secondary the Browns will face this year.
Peterson and Mathieu, both former LSU Tigers leads this secondary in different ways. Peterson assumes the same role as Browns CB Joe Haden by going up against the opposing team’s No.1 WR and manning up against them for the entire game.

Matthieu on the other hand, just causes chaos from his free safety spot by hawking after the ball and making tackles in the run game. Combining those two along with CB Jerraud Powers and SS Rashad Johnson and you get a secondary that completely changes the game up from the opposing team.
Those four alone have combined for 8 INTs and a fumble so far this season.
Not only that but the Cardinals are ranked No. 7 in the NFL in passing yards allowed with 224 yards per game.
That is going to make it tough on the Browns’ offense to get moving. If Cleveland’s defense does not shape up, then the Browns might be forced to play in a shootout in order to beat Arizona.
Should the be required, I do not believe they will make it much of a shootout if that’s the case.
