This Sunday, the St. Louis Rams [1-2] head west to take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. The Cards, who are averaging 42 points per game thus far in 2015, open as six point favorites.
But how does the Turf Show Times staff see this one panning out?

On paper, this should be a good matchup for the Rams. The Cardinals run game has been among the worst in the NFL the past few years and the Rams seem to match the talent level put on the field. However, the Cardinals have had the Rams number recently and have won the last 3 meetings so this has been a one sided rivalry of late.
With the way the Rams offense has played the last 2 weeks, I'm having a hard time believing that they can win this game. But then again, isn't that what this team does? Boot the winnable game and challenge in games they have no business winning?
Ultimately, I think that the Cardinals have more game changing players and will make enough plays to bury the Rams when the going gets tough.
Prediction: Cardinals win 24-10
I'm tossing everything I thought I knew about this team out of the window, because apparently I don't know anything - except the fact that they're inconsistent. So like a blind child throwing knives at a Ferris wheel, who knows if or what I'll hit, so here we go.
Rams will score more points in this game than they did in the two previous games combined. They will hold the Cardinals passing game to a relatively low number. This will be another defensive showdown. I know how bad the Rams play on the road, I know how bad they have been on offense. I know how bad the running game has been. But this could easily be one of those "what is going on with the Rams and why are they doing so well?!" games. Rams actually had a higher YPC than the Steelers with Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams.

November just died, December's alive
Thus it ain't no typical ride
Just individual's way to bring home
The bacon when bacon was all gone
Makin it our own, takin me all wrong
We've all indulged in the bulge of those no-no's
No you ain't solo, it's even lower levels you can go
Take sun people, put 'em in a land of snow
