The Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots do battle in Monday Night Football week 14 NFL action at State Farm Stadium. The New England Patriots look to get above a .500 record. The Arizona Cardinals have lost 4 of their last 5 games.

The New England Patriots have split their last 6 road games. Mac Jones is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 1,963 yards, 7 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Jakobi Meyers and DeVante Parker have combined for 1,029 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Rhamondre Stevenson has 56 receptions. The New England Patriots ground game is averaging 104.9 yards per contest, and Stevenson leads the way with 734 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, New England is allowing 18.8 points and 311.8 yards per game. Ja’Whaun Bentley leads the New England Patriots with 77 tackles, Matthew Judon has 13 sacks and Jonathan Jones has 3 interceptions.

The Arizona Cardinals have lost 5 of their last 6 home games. Kyler Murray is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 2,359 yards, 14 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown have combined for 1,105 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Rondale Moore has 41 receptions.

Defensively, Arizona is allowing 26.8 points and 356.2 yards per game. Budda Baker leads the Arizona Cardinals with 90 tackles, J.J. Watt has 6.5 sacks and Dennis Gardeck has 1 interception.

The Patriots are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Cardinals are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Monday games. The under is 4-1 in Patriots last 5 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Cardinals last 6 games overall. The Patriots are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The New England Patriots are getting the benefit of the doubt here because they’ve been the better team this season and their defense is the best unit between these clubs. However, I’m not excited to lay points with this Pats’ offense on the road. Also, I still believe the Cardinals are better than what they’ve shown through 12 games, and they have had an extra week to prepare for this game. Maybe I’m holding out false hope with the Cards. I don’t know. I’m still grabbing the points with the home team if forced to pick.
