So they've underachieved all this time because of a subpar medical staff? At least we know who to blame for the 17th straight non-playoff effort.

Cardinals Keys to Victory:
They have to get in an offensive rhythm early, involving RBs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson. When they do, they move the ball. Johnson hasn’t rushed for more than 20 yards since Oct. 13 but had 34 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 14. Defensively, the Cardinals have to force the Browns to make bad throws. A turnover or two would counter the yards they give up.
Browns Keys to Victory:
The Cardinals have been awful with their pass defense all season, yet the Browns have been bad of late and WR Odell Beckham Jr. has been dealing with injuries and frustration. QB Baker Mayfield needs to find his playmakers. The Cardinals haven’t generated many turnovers, so by simply taking care of the ball should help score points. On defense, the key is to pressure QB Kyler Murray, who has thrown for fewer than 200 yards in three consecutive games. He had three interceptions last week.
Matchup to watch according to USA Today Sports Weekly:
Browns’ WR Odell Beckham vs. Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson
Matchup to watch according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:
Browns Defense vs Cardinals QB Kyler Murray
Kyler Murray is a quarterback who can run and pass. The Browns defense need to contain him and watch to make sure he does not scramble for positive yards.
Who will win and why according to USA Today Sports Weekly:
The Cardinals close out their home schedule with a good showing offensively, but the defense makes things interesting and they lose their seventh game in a row
Who will win and why according to Browns Backers of North Jersey:
The Browns travel out west to a warm environment with a fast field. I think Freddie Kitchens learned in the 2nd half that the Browns need to run the ball. This week the offense runs the ball to set up the pass and things open up.
Who will win according
