Cardinals vs Rams NFL Week 5 Thursday Night Prediction
National Football League action kicks into high gear on Thursday night as the Arizona Cardinals travel to the Show Me State to battle the St. Louis Rams. Both of these NFC West clubs are playing better than many prognosticators predicted they would. Kickoff is slated for 8:20 PM ET, on October 4, 2012, from the Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis, Missouri.
Arizona Cardinals: Looking to stay perfect at 5-0
It wasn’t pretty but the Arizona Cardinals slipped past the Miami Dolphins in OT during Week 4 NFL action as they moved to 4-0 on the season. While yours truly had them as one of my Best Bets, I have to admit that I was chewing my arm off watching the Cardinals implode on pass defense. They will be better tonight. The Cards own a 9-1 S/U recent record vs the Rams.
St. Louis Rams: Surprising NFL bettors with 2-2 NFL 2012 record
If you made the call that St. Louis would be 2-2 (should be 3-1) at this early juncture of the 2012 NFL season, especially after their heartbreaking Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions, go bye yourself a lottery ticket. The two victories by the Rams ties their season total from a year ago. Void of stars on either side of the ball, this is a tough team to handicap this year.
