OUR PREDICTION: The Rams beat the Cardinals earlier this season in Arizona but Bruce Arians and Co. return the favor today. Rookie quarterback Jared Goff hasn't shown any improvement in his first season and Todd Gurley looks like he lost some of the burst that made him explosive a year ago. Los Angeles' offensive line is also one of the worst in football and it looks like the defense checked out a month ago. The Cardinals haven't been a model for consistency, but they should lean on David Johnson to roll past the Rams today and end the season on a high note.
