Kyler Murray is an electric quarterback and the Cardinals have always put talent around the 2019 rookie of the year. He’s had future hall of famer Larry Fitgerald to throw to, and just last year, the offense added DeAndre Hopkins to the mix. This year they added veteran wide receiver A.J. Green, running back James Conner and drafted wide receiver Rondale Moore out of Purdue in the second round. Again, Murray finds himself in a good spot. 

Arizona didn’t stop with additions to their offense, they also upgraded their defense by signing three-time defensive player of the year J.J. Watt. He brings 101 career sacks (31st all-time) to a defense that was already in good shape coming up with 48 sacks last year, fourth most in the NFL. 

The Titans have a former linebacker for a head coach in Mike Vrabel, now in his fourth season, but their offense is what will steal headlines this year. They’ve added pro bowl wide receiver  Julio Jones to an offense that already featured the talents of A.J. Brown and the NFL’s leading rusher Derrick Henry. 

Both Henry and Brown are coming off of great seasons. Henry rushed for 2,027 yards to become just the eighth player in history to run for more than 2,000 yards in a season. He also scored 17 touchdowns. Brown improved upon a very impressive rookie season in 2019 to catch 70 passes last year for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

The Titans are 3-point favorites against the Cardinals. The over/under is 52 points.

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.View Deal

Paramount Plus combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from the deep ViacomCBS vault. Get access to Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Picard and The Good Fight. And more great stuff is on the way, including Frasier and Criminal Minds revivals.View Deal

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is included in NFL Sunday Ticket, which is available even if you don't have DirecTV.
