The Arizona Cardinals will be taking on the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night in the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. Here’s the best way to watch them.
The Arizona Cardinals wrapped up the regular season with an 11-6 record (an incredibly impressive 8-1 record on the road) and now have a date with a familiar foe.
The Los Angeles Rams.
With a matchup between the two NFC West foes looming on Monday night, you’ve got a couple of days to figure out a streaming solution (if you don’t have one already).
We’re here to help.
But first, let’s talk about the game a bit.
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams Preview
Time: 8:15PM ET
Odds: Rams -4
The Cardinals split their games with Los Angeles this season, winning the first matchup in early October 37-20. LA came away with a 30-23 victory in mid-December.
As previously mentioned, the Cardinals have been road warriors this year, so maybe traveling to Hollywood is a good thing? That’s probably a stretch, considering oddsmakers have the Rams as a 4-point favorite.
For Arizona, it’s worth mentioning the surprise season James Conner had. While many expected Chase Edmonds to be the lead back in the desert, it was Conner who rumbled for 752 yards and a whopping 15 touchdowns.
However, Conner is currently nursing a rib injury. The team is hopeful he’ll be back for Monday.
But while Conner has been great, the Cardinals will live and die with Kyler Murray. Murray completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 3,787 yards and 24 touchdowns while adding 423 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
He’s shifty, mobile, elusive and explosive. If he makes plays, it will be hard to slow the Cardinals.
As far as Los Angeles is concerned, it will depend on which defense shows up. Von Miller, Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey are all x-factors who can take over a game – and if Murray is running for his life that’ll be a good thing for the Rams.
Offensively, no team has been able to stop the Matt Stafford to Cooper Kupp connection. Stafford finished third in the NFL in yards with 4,886 and second in touchdowns with 41. Kupp, meanwhile, nearly made history. Kupp finished just 18 yards shy of the NFL’s single-season receiving record. Still, he finished with an NFL triple crown, leading the league in yards (1,947), touchdowns (16) and catches (145).
The Cardinals will have no answer for Kupp.
