It just doesn’t feel like a great game is coming for the Cardinals in this one. They were ripped to shreds last week on the defensive side of the ball by QB Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins, and they aren’t going to be able to hold out defensively for the whole season. The offense stymied itself thanks to the fact that RB Ryan Williams just wasn’t able to get the ball moving on the ground, and that is going to ultimately be the demise of Arizona in this game. St. Louis has quietly played great defense, and Head Coach Jeff Fisher has it believing that it can indeed get into the playoffs this year. QB Sam Bradford has to be better, but this isn’t a game where he is going to need to put up 24 to win. Getting to 17 might suffice.
Cardinals @ Rams Pick: St. Louis Rams +1.5
Arizona @ St. Louis Score Prediction: St. Louis 17 – Arizona 13
