The Rams (8-4) lost three straight games before getting right against the Jaguars last week with a 37-7 win in Los Angeles. Matthew Stafford threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns posting his highest passer rating (117.8) since their losing streak started. 

The win also marked best performance in weeks from L.A.'s defense. For the most part this season they have been a middle of the road unit in terms of points allowed. However, over their previous four games the Los Angeles D allowed 29 points-per-game on average, which would rank them as the second worst in the NFL

Los Angeles will be without all-pro corner Jalen Ramsey as he was placed in the NFL's COVID protocol late Monday afternoon along with tight end Tyler Higbee. 

The Cardinals (10-2) own the best record in the NFL and last week, the NFL's best only got better. Their 33-22 win over the Bears in week 13 marked the return of Kyler Murray and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins who both missed three games due to injury. They wasted no time reestablishing themselves as a marquee duo. It took all of four plays for Murray to find Hopkins for the first touchdown of the game.  

Cardinals running back James Connor continued his tear as he scored his 14th touchdown of the season. This one coming on a 23-yard pass from Murray. Connor has now score a touchdown in six straight games.

Arizona took the first meeting between these two teams back in week four. Both teams entered that game 3-0, before the Cardinals rolled the Rams, 37-20. Murray and Stafford threw for over 260 yards and two touchdowns. 

The Cardinals are 3-point favorites against the Rams. The over/under is 51.
