The Cardinals played inspired last week against the Seahawks. The Rams stayed with the 49ers last week and had their chances to win before falling 22-21. It is hard to say whether either of those games carries into this one.
The Cardinals have some payback on their mind. Palmer brought it up earlier this week. Both of these teams have changed somewhat however since that October game.
Nobody likes to go into the offseason with a loss. However a victory does little to carry any momentum into the following season. Both teams will have some roster turnover in the offseason.
What you see Sunday will not be what you see when the two teams tango in England next season. With a possibility of a number of long time Cardinals leaving after Sunday, look for them to continue to play hard and inspired football. Arizona 41 Los Angeles 20
