Have the "public" bought into the Cardinals after they were "the best team not to make the playoffs" in 2013? Time will tell, but so far 67% of the bets are on the dog.
For the Chargers, I like their continuity with their offensive starters, and it will be virtually impossible to be worse on D. They made upgrades to this unit and they get key guys back from injury. Pagano can actually use the secondary to scheme against opponents instead of finding ways to hide them. They won't suddenly become a top 10 group, but average should be good enough to give Palmer and company enough problems to cover (and likely win) this game.
NFL Pick: SD +3.5.
