After not starting in an NFL game since the 2019 season, David Blough will be making his second start in a row to wrap up the season for the Arizona Cardinals.
Blough proved to be a solid backup quarterback last week against the Atlanta Falcons. Although Arizona fell short to a last-second field goal, the 30-year-old exceeded the expectations of many by throwing for 222 yards, a touchdown, and most importantly, no turnovers.
This weekend, David Blough will have the opportunity to secure his first ever NFL win, so far, he is sitting at an 0-6 record as starter.
But this will by no means be an easy task, as Blough will be facing one of the best defenses in the league. With the season coming to a close, the San Francisco 49ers have allowed the fewest points on average with just 16.5.
This defense is also second in the NFL for interceptions with 17, only trailing the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Additionally, the 49ers will be playing in hopes of capturing the No. 1 seed in the NFC West, which they can achieve with a win and a Philadelphia Eagles loss.
The good news for Blough is that this may not be his final shot to secure a win while wearing a Cardinals’ uniform.
With Kyler Murray expected to miss the first couple of games of next season, another impressive performance from David Blough may allow him to be the opening day starter for Arizona in the upcoming fall.
