McCoy

Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback Colt McCoy is projected to start Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Starting quarterback Kyler Murray is still tending to a hamstring injury. McCoy started last week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. He completed 26 or 36 passes for 243 yards and one touchdown.

Throughout his career, Colt McCoy has been a journeyman backup quarterback. He’s been solid whenever his number is called upon to start. He seems to have found his footing in Arizona as he has his best record starting for them.

McCoy was drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns. He only started two seasons for Cleveland going 2-6 and 4-9 in those years.

After those first two seasons, McCoy was then relegated to a back up role which has been hos role for the remainder of his career.

Tonight’s game against the 49ers is a huge game for Arizona as they sit 3rd in the NFC West. The game is being played in Mexico City at Estadio Azteca. It will be a tough test for Arizona as they face the new looked offense of the 49ers.

San Francisco does have a very good defense but they can be exploited in the secondary. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is one of their main target monsters whoever the quarterback is. He is deemed questionable for this game with a hamstring injury but is considered to be good to go. His presence will be very helpful for Colt McCoy.

Hopkins caught 10 balls for 98 yards last week on 14 targets against a good Rams secondary. Also wide receiver Rondale Moore could benefit for more targets with Marquise “Holywood” Brown and tight end Zach Ertz out.

San Fransisco is a 10 point favorite according to most NFL betting sites. With Colt McCoy possibly starting this game, expect the Cardinals to be playing from behind for almost the entire game.
