Cardinals Week 7 Rating
The Cardinals are off to a perfect 6-0 start picking up impressive road wins vs the Titans, Rams, and Browns, however, they remain 4th in my Week 7 ratings. If you just take this year’s data Arizona has the highest rating in the league, but early in the year I factor in a team’s preseason rating. Early in the year the stats can be skewed but as the season goes on water tends to find its level and teams tend to return somewhere close to their preseason rating. The Cardinals missed the playoffs last year and their preseason rating was 11th best in the league. My numbers have actually overvalued Arizona for much of the year relative to the oddsmakers including this week against Houston. If they continue to play the way they have the first 6 weeks they will certainly move up my rankings.
