St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals: Series History, Recent Matchups, and Key Stats

A look at the history between St Louis' current and former team

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams will travel to Glendale to challenge the 3-0 Cardinals on Sunday. It will be the 73rd clash between the two franchises with the Cardinals leading the series 36-34-2. Since Bruce Arians took over as the Head Coach in Arizona, he has led the Cardinals to a 3-1 record against Fisher's Rams, including an active 3 game winning streak.

The last time the Rams played @ Arizona, they ended Carson Palmer's season (and aspirations of a playoff run) but lost after allowing a multitude of big plays.

You have to go back to September 2013 for the most recent Rams victory over the Cardinals. Sam Bradford led the Rams to 14 unanswered points in the 4th quarter of a memorable win for Rams fans.
