The Rams vs Cardinals live stream begins at 4:05 p.m. ET/ 1:05 p.m. PT today, December 6 on FOX.

This should be a close one. After both teams saw a tough week 12, this Rams vs Cardinals live stream hinges on both squads trying to see which team can make up for painful losses. Since the teams are fairly well matched on offense, the game will likely come down to defense. 

The Rams are currently favored by just 2.5 points for this NFL live stream. In fact, the Rams have won the past six encounters with the Cardinals, but this spread is so tight that anything can happen. 

Each team has been aggressive in moving the ball. The Cardinals rank second in the league for yardage, with 403.7 yards per game. The Rams are close behind, ranking sixth with 389.2 ypg. But both teams have had difficulty in the past week.

Arizona's scoring ability is in question after a poor showing against the New England Patriots, in which quarterback Kyler Murray threw for just 170 yards, succeeding on 23 of 34 attempts. He's been nursing a shoulder injury since week 11's loss to the Seattle Seahawks, though Murray insists that the sprain isn’t affecting his strategy.

Rams' QB Jared Goff hasn’t suffered any injuries, but his output has also declined. He finished the loss to the San Francisco 49ers at 19-for-31 passing, with only 198 yards and two interceptions.

Assuming each quarterback can get back to top (or even average) performance, the game could come down to defense. And LA holds the advantage here, allowing the second-fewest yards and the fourth-fewest points in the NFL this season. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald has the fourth highest number of sacks this season, and he'll put steady pressure on Murray.
