Patriots vs. Cardinals score: Live updates, game stats, highlights, how to watch ‘Monday Night Football’

The New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals are putting a bow on Week 14 in the NFL, as these two clubs are going toe-to-toe in primetime. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re putting a pretty bow on the week, however, as both sides battled injuries and poor execution during a sloppy first half. Arizona managed a 13-10 lead going into the break despite losing starting quarterback Kyler Murray to a potentially serious knee injury just three plays into the game. New England, meanwhile, has seen both Rhamondre Stevenson and DeVante Parker check out as their offensive woes continue.

For the Patriots, this matchup presents the opportunity to leap back inside the playoff picture, as a win would slot them in as the No. 7 seed in the conference, leaping over both the New York Jets and Los Angeles Chargers. Bill Belichick’s team will be trying to do that while also snapping a two-game losing skid in the process. As for Arizona, it is fighting for whatever playoff life it has left at 4-8 and would certainly need a win here to keep that dream alive.

New England entered this matchup as a slim road favorite, which could be a testament to the Cardinals’ struggles at State Farm Stadium, as they’ve lost 10 of their last 11 game in Glendale. They’ll be looking to right that ship Monday night.
