Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals look to remain undefeated
Arizona(-2) at St. Louis 8:25PM – The undefeated Arizona Cardinals (4-0) travel to St. Louis to meet the (2-2) St. Louis Rams. The Cardinals escaped with OT victory over Miami Sunday to remain undefeated. The St. Louis Rams won a hard fought game against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday to even their record.
Arizona showed what it was made of against the Miami Dolphins. They had no business winning that game. They came out totally flat against Miami, and were down 13-0 at halftime and lifeless. Arizona came out in the 2nd half with some fire and got the job done. QB Kevin Kolb, who at times played like he never saw a football before, hit receiver Andre Roberts on 4th and 10 with the tying touchdown with 29 seconds remaining in regulation. Arizona one the game in OT when Jay Feely made good on his 46 yard attempt. While the Cardinals shouldn’t have struggled with Miami, they played a full game a found a way to win. That’s what good teams do.
This game should have the same type of feel as last week’s Rams game against the Seahawks. It will be grind it out type of battle. The Rams MVP last week was PK Greg Zuerlein who connected on all four FG’s including a 58-yarder and a 60-yarder. The Rams will likely need that kind of performance tonight to defeat Arizona. The Rams defense picked off QB Russell Wilson three times last week, and will need to pressure Kolb who has not handled that well.
This game actually has a little buzz with Arizona being undefeated and the Rams playing some good football behind new HC Jeff Fisher. Arizona in not in the best of spots after playing an emotional OT game on Sunday and traveling to St. Louis for the Thursday night affair. However, the Cardinals have won seven straight in St. Louis and 10 out of the last 11 meetings. This will be a close won, but history and talent on the side of Arizona.
