The Arizona Cardinals have won five straight games, but injuries are beginning to mount as they head to St. Louis to take on a Rams team that beat them in Glendale in Week 4.
Will the Cards avenge that defeat? ABC15's Cardinals Countdown crew makes its predictions.
Based on what happened in the 49ers game, and being on the road against the Rams and their defensive front, I've got to keep it a close game. Cardinals 13, Rams 10.
If the Cardinals win the turnover battle again, they'll win this game. If they don't, they'll lose. Todd Gurley will have a good day, but Carson Palmer will be back to being the Carson Palmer he has been. Cardinals 31, Rams 27.
I think the Cardinals will be better this week but I don't think they're going to run up and down the field at will. I think the defense will get the wakeup call it needs. It's about time for the secondary to start making some plays again. Cardinals 26, Rams 13.
If you look at the numbers, the Cardinals should win this game easily. But it's a rivalry game and the Rams are 3-2 at home. The Rams will get up for this game just like the 49ers did last week. It'll be close. Cardinals 24, Rams 20.
