8. Matthew Stafford adds 3 more interceptions…and 3 more touchdowns

Matthew Stafford has proven — you can throw interceptions and still have a ton of success. He did it last year, throwing 17 interceptions in the regular season while also throwing 41 touchdown passes and leading the Rams to a Super Bowl victory. This year, he’s off to a similar start.

Through the first two games of the season, Stafford has four touchdown passes and five interceptions. His interception percentage right now is up at a staggering 6.5 percent. Yes, Stafford has got to go out and be smarter with the ball, but he’s always been a gunslinger.

After the Rams’ win in Week 2, I think Stafford is going to come out slinging once again in Week 3, throwing three touchdowns and three picks.

7. Kyler Murray wills the Cardinals to a 10-point victory

The Arizona Cardinals are taking on the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3 after their shocking and very fun comeback win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2. Kyler Murray willed his team to victory and obviously got some big help from the defense in overtime. Although the Cardinals are one of the more overrated teams in the league, in my opinion, I think they’re going to be tougher earlier on in the season like they have been in recent years.

Kyler Murray is going to be playing with tremendous confidence after what we saw against the Raiders and I think we’re going to see him put the team on his back en route to a big divisional win over the Rams.
