Glendale, Arizona will be hosting the NFL matchup of the Los Angeles Rams (11-3) at the Arizona Cardinals (3-11) that will be shown on FOX at 1:05pm. RB Todd Gurley will be a game-time decision with his knee injury and Cards QB Josh Rosen looks likely to be the starter after being benched last week. All of this is what we know, everything else about what will happen during the game is an educated guess. With that being stated...

Let’s get bold.

No interceptions for Jared Goff — his highest QB rating for the season

Jared Goff’s best game statistically was vs the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football; a 158.3 QB rating that featured 5 TDs, 465 yards passing, and no turnovers. With the national spotlight finally onto another NFL team, Jared Goff will regain his excellence that has been lost since the Monday Night Football classic vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. The Goff is back!

DL Ndamukong Suh is going to eat QB Josh Rosen for lunch

2 sacks for Suh and one forced fumble, proving that he still has it. And I do believe Aaron Donald will play well, but I don’t think that’s too bold of a prediction — it’s only been two games that he hasn’t been a monster. I’m not worried about the defensive line in this game one bit. However, Josh Rosen is still going to get some points on the board, taking advantage of the Rams secondary at times.

Two touchdowns for WR Brandin Cooks

The Arizona Cardinals could use an improvement with their cornerbacks and Brandin Cooks is going to amplify that idea so it’s loud and clear. Get ready for some big-time plays of over 50+ yards. This game is going to be electric if you’re a Rams fan.

A 4th down TD pass for P Johnny Hekker

Quite possibly the play of the year is about to happen in Arizona: the LA Rams punter is going to turn some heads with a bomb to WR Robert Woods for a touchdown.

The potent offense of the Rams is back, baby. Against a 3-11 team. But we play who we play.

Rams win, 52-27.
