Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Game Preview
Why Los Angeles Rams Will Win
Enough is enough. It’s time to get this offense ramped up again.
It’s not like it’s been bad – it’s still fifth in the NFL in total yards – but it hasn’t been consistent enough on the ground and the passing attack hasn’t been as smooth as it should be.
Yeah, the Rams were great last week … against Jacksonville. They were great a few weeks ago … against Houston.
They haven’t been able to go off against the good teams, and that includes the 37-20 loss to Arizona in Week 4. However, the Cardinals can be run on. The Bears were able to do it a little bit last week and Carolina and Green Bay were able to rip off yards in chunks.
With Darrell Henderson out, Sony Michel has to get rolling right away.
Why Arizona Will Win
The Cardinals got back up to speed with Kyler Murray returning for last week’s win over Chicago. Now they’re back for their first home game since mid-November.
The offense might still be the star of the show, but the defense has been terrific, especially when it comes to takeaways with four against the Bears and nine in the last four games.
In a shootout, it should come down to maximizing and extending every possession.
The Cardinals are great on third downs on both sides of the ball. The Rams aren’t, especially on defense.
What’s Going To Happen
Arizona converted on 8-of-13 third down tries in the first meeting and the defense clamped down hard after the first quarter.
At home, this will be a blast of a back-and-forth offensive fight … and then the Cardinal D will clamp down hard in the fourth quarter.
Expect this to be as much fun as you’ll hope this could be for a Monday Night game.
