The Cardinals are led by running back David Johnson, who compiled 2,118 yards rushing and receiving last season and 20 touchdowns. Quarterback Carson Palmer, 37, finished ninth in the league in passing yards last season and had 26 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions. He has two solid wideouts in John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald, who is 34 but coming off back-to-back seasons with more than 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards.
