Cardinals vs Vikings: Cardinals vs Vikings Live: The Arizona Cardinals go on the road for the first time in the 2019 NFL preseason when they face the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET from U.S. Bank Stadium. Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray looks to bounce back from a dismal performance Saturday when the Cardinals face the Vikings on the road.
Murray will be the Cardinals’ starting quarterback for Week 1 of the regular season, but he and head coach Kliff Kingsbury have some work to do. Murray was terrible against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2, completing just 3-of-8 passes for 12 yards, and he was sacked for a safety in the game.
That’s not the kind of performance that will make Arizona fans forget Josh Rosen, the No. 10 pick of the 2018 draft who was traded by the Cardinals to the Miami Dolphins.
Minnesota’s veteran quarterback, Kirk Cousins, looked sharp against the Seattle Seahawks during his 2019 preseason debut in Week 2. Cousins completed 6-of-8 passes for 68 yards and led the Vikings offense on a couple of nice drives before he exited the game. Keep an eye out for quarterback and former Oregon State star Sean Mannion, who is battling Kyle Sloter for the backup quarterback position.
