Two of the biggest injuries in Week 7 were suffered by quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Carson Palmer.
Miami lost Cutler to a chest injury early in the third quarter against the New York Jets. The Fins are reporting that the quarterback suffered broken ribs and could be sidelined for two to three games.
Palmer left Sunday’s game in London against the Los Angeles Rams with an arm injury. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback will have surgery to repair his broken non-throwing arm and miss at least eight weeks.
Matt Moore and Drew Stanton are expected to start. Backups don’t inspire optimism among casual bettors but don’t be quick to fade these veteran starters.
When you lose the @AZCardinals quarterback challenge, this is the forfeit ??

In their careers, Moore is 15-13 straight-up and Stanton is 8-7 as starters. Those records won’t get them to Canton but they’ll always have a special place in the heart of bettors.
|Matt Moore||Drew Stanton|
|All Games||20-8 ATS||10-4-1 ATS|
|Underdogs||11-6 ATS||9-3-1 ATS|
|Road||10-4 ATS||4-4-1 ATS|
|<50% of bets||16-7 ATS||7-2-1 ATS|
Combined, these two seasoned quarterbacks are 30-12-1 (71.4%) ATS, +17.09 units.
Past performance does not guarantee future success but the public has underestimated these two signal callers before and are doing so once again. Moore is a 3-point dog at Baltimore on Thursday. At the time of publication more than 70% of spread dollars are on the Ravens.
Moore threw for 188 yards and two touchdowns rallying the Dolphins to the win over the Jets after Cutler was knocked out of the game on Sunday. The nine-year veteran is often overlooked but casual bettors should take notice. Moore can not only cover against Baltimore Thursday but can lead Miami to a win.
Note: Arizona is off this week. It’ll be interesting to see which side bettors take when the Cardinals travel to San Francisco to face the winless 49ers in Week 9.
