Washington knocked off the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1, scoring 27 unanswered in a 27-17 win. Despite the comeback, oddsmakers don’t like Washington in its next matchup.

The team opened as 7-point underdogs against the Arizona Cardinals for next week’s game at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, according to BetOnline.

The Cardinals, however, are coming off an impressive win of their own. Quarterback Kyler Murray dazzled with 230 passing yards and 91 rushing yards to upset the San Francisco 49ers in a 24-20 win. The 49ers, of course, made the Super Bowl last season.

Arizona, too, is seen as a sleeper in the NFC West. The Cardinals made a splashy move this offseason, trading for Pro Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins to give Murray a go-to option on the outside.

Hopkins dominated the 49ers, catching 14 of 16 targets for 151 yards.
