Cardinals vs Patriots Predictions and Expert Picks for Week 12 NFL Game

After another loss in Week 11, the (4-6) New England Patriots are on the brink of a lost season, which would break Bill Belichick's 11-year playoff streak. The visiting Arizona Cardinals (6-4) could be the team to deliver the final blow in 2020.

With everything on the line in Foxborough, we'll turn to the experts for their Cardinals-Patriots predictions.

Cardinals vs Patriots Picks Week 12

CBS Sports picks are from their panel of experts, numberFire picks are from their NFL game projections, Sporting News picks are from Vinnie Iyer, and betting favorites are from FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 12 NFL odds.

numberFire: Cardinals
Sporting News: Cardinals
Betting Favorite: Cardinals -2.5

This is no doubt one of the tightest matchups of Week 12 on paper, with the Patriots sitting as rare home underdogs against Arizona. Kyler Murray is also dealing with a shoulder issue, which makes this game even harder to predict. Having said all that, it's seems like the experts have picked this one down the middle. The portion of the panel that went Cardinals has them covering as well, and the writers that have New England covering picked them to win outright.
