The 4-0 Cardinals will play tonight on Thursday Night Football on NFL Network. The team brings their 4-0 record to St. Louis to take on the Rams at Edward Jones Dome. The Rams come into the game with a 2-2 record after winning their week 4 game against the Seahawks 19-13. Arizona’s latest win came against the Miami Dolphins in Arizona by the final of 24-21. Despite their success, everyone needs to remember that this Ram team is now coached by Jeff Fisher who seems to be having success turning the team in the right direction.
The Cardinals, to this point, have beaten the Dolphins, Eagles, Patriots, and Seahawks. This list has its definite surprises, but should show that the team is for real. This latest test is yet another step in the process to show just how real the team is. It is a game that they “should” win as you look at the success against the Eagles and Pats. They have been good in every aspect and have been one of the best defensive teams in the league this year.
The Rams have also made a ton of progress defensively and give up less than 350 yards of offense a game. They give up just 213 yards passing per game and could pose a big risk if the Cardinals have to throw. On the contrary, however, they give up more than 135 yards rushing per game to this point this season. This game certainly could go either way, so you mine as well flip a coin and go with the winner.
PREDICTION: ARZ 20 STL 23
