Arizona -7 Total 43
Fresh off their upset win at San Francisco, the St. Louis Rams will try to pull another when they take on the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The Rams defense caused a Colin Kapernick fumble at the goal line with two seconds remaining to preserve their 13-10 win over the 49ers. Wins over San Francisco and Seattle in the last three weeks have caused people to take notice of St. Louis. However, a win over red hot Arizona would be an even greater feat. St. Louis will have to be more effective on offense after only gaining 193 total yards against San Francisco.
At the halfway point of the season, St. Louis ranks 25th in passing offense, 22nd in rushing offense, and 28th in scoring offense at 18.6 points per game.
The Arizona Cardinals quietly are the owners of the best record in football. In a division that most predicted the Seattle Seahawks or the San Francisco 49ers to win, the Arizona Cardinals sit atop the NFC West with a two game lead over Seattle and a three game lead over San Francisco. The Cardinals are doing with defense and making just enough plays on offense. In week 9, Arizona defeated the Dallas Cowboys 28-17, who were playing without QB Tony Romo. Cardinals QB Carson Palmer bounced back from an early pick six to throw for 249 yards and three touchdowns on the day.
Through eight games, Arizona ranks 16th in passing offense, 28th in rushing offense, and 14th in scoring offense at 24 points per game.
St. Louis and Arizona bring pretty similar statistical defensive units into this matchup. St. Louis ranks 10th in total defense and 27th in scoring defense at 27.5 points per game. Arizona ranks 11th in total defense, but is much stingier in points allowed at 19.5 points per game.
