Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.94: Vikings, Browns, Cardinals, and Ravens Review with Dwain McFarland

RSP contributor Dwain McFarland drops by the Matt Waldman RSP Cast for a conversation about our insights from the first three weeks of performances from the Cardinals, Ravens, Browns, and Vikings. 

Every few weeks throughout the season, Dwain McFarland and I will be comparing notes about various teams. This week, we cover the ups and downs of four teams that we reviewed during our summer projection series.

  • Why does Kyler Murray have a deceptively bad pressure rate?
  • Why is the Cardinals’ play volume a stabilizing sign for the offense moving forward?
  • How are defenses adjusting to the Cardinals’ passing game?
  • Will the Arizona ground game improve?
  • Has Lamar Jackson’s perimeter passing game improved?
  • Why is the Ravens’ performance better than its early schedule of opponents?
  • What did we learn from the Chiefs game?
  • Where does Baker Mayfield rank near the bottom of the league as a passer?
  • How are Mayfield’s and this offense’s struggles potentially symptoms of a deeper team-building problem in Cleveland?
  • Where must Mayfield take responsibility for passing game’s performance?
  • How good is the Vikings’ ground game?
  • Why is Kirk Cousins’ taking so much time in the pocket and lacking success?
  • Who is an emerging weapon in the Vikings’ offense?

As always, Dwain and I combine film and data to deliver insights that should help you get a clearer understanding of these teams and how their seasons could unfold. We encourage you to rate and review the podcast. If you prefer to email me, I’m available at
