Los Angeles Rams
Don’t be surprised at a much better outcome this time around. The Cardinals won’t lose this one 33-0.
Last week, things just snowballed for the Cardinals. Give the Rams credit, they played well, but it was just a 6-0 game in the second quarter.
The Cardinals have lost the last couple of games at home to the Rams, maybe this is the year they turn it around?

The Titans have not been as good as some thought they would be this season. They struggled to beat the Cleveland Browns a couple of weeks ago.
The Cardinals get the Titans at home for the first time at University of Phoenix Stadium, marking the last NFL team to play a regular-season game in that stadium.
The Cardinals should be able to hang with this team given its current state. Still, they are dangerous when healthy, they have big offensive weapons.

at Washington Redskins
The Skins will likely still be fighting for a playoff spot and it’s in Washington, in December. That is not a good mix for the Cardinals.
What it could be though is the last game without Palmer at quarterback for the Cardinals. Still, Kirk Cousins will likely prove too much for the Cardinals this day.

New York Giants
If the predictions hold true, the Cardinals would be 6-8 at this point and likely out of the playoff picture. So do the Cardinals make the move to bring Palmer off of injured reserve to start this one?
Even though they are out of it, odds would say yes since this could be Palmer’s last season. He doesn’t want to go out the way he did in London. With a chance to finish 8-8 with the season the way its gone and a decimated Giants team, it would be a nice Christmas present for all for Palmer to return and lead the Cardinals to their biggest win of the year.

at Seattle Seahawks
Last year, they played their best game on Christmas Eve in Seattle. This year, why not make it New Years eve in Seattle?
The Cardinals are 3-1 in Seattle in the Bruce Arians era. The only one they lost was without Palmer. Palmer would be back for this one and a chance to finish the season 8-8.
