For two-thirds of the 2020 season, Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray had the Cardinals' offense looking every bit a playoff-caliber attack. They utterly collapsed down the stretch, however, and were one of the league's worst offenses after Thanksgiving. Now Kingsbury must prove his Air Raid scheme is more than just an amateur-level gimmick, and that he can correct the game management errors that were so frequent last year. And Murray must improve in consistency and accuracy, show that he is more than a scrambler with a big arm, and convince the Cardinals to pick up his fifth-year option when the season is done.  – Vince Verhei
