Car­di­nals

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - 2018 Nfl Preview Capsules -

8-8, 3rd in divi­sion.

It doesn’t mat­ter who is at quar­ter­back if this dual-threat run­ning back isn’t a big part of the of­fense. John­son, who was lost for the sea­son in the open­ing week last year, was the NFL’s best run­ning back in 2016.

The reign­ing sack leader in the NFL is ad­just­ing to the 4-3 scheme of new coach Steve Wilks. Jones will be tested in Week 1 against Red­skins left tackle Trent Wil­liams.

In his 15th sea­son, the most vet­eran Car­di­nal also could be the most valu­able. Fitzger­ald led the NFC in catches last sea­son and has a thin re­ceiv­ing corps around him.

He made the team last year as an un­drafted rookie and, de­spite lim­ited play­ing time, caught three touch­down passes. He’s the cousin of Hall of Famer Eric Dick­er­son.
