"The second divisional showdown of Super Wild Card Weekend will be played on Monday night, and it's sure to be an exciting one. When these two teams played in Week 4, the Cardinals used a 17-3 run in the second quarter to acquire a 24-13 halftime lead. Arizona then scored 10 unanswered points in the third quarter, and that was that. In their rematch in Week 14, the Rams rode a 14-point third quarter to victory. Matthew Stafford completed 23 of 30 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns while Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. combined for 200 yards and two touchdowns. The passing game was working on Dec. 13.
"Kyler Murray has historically struggled against L.A. He's 1-5 against the Rams with seven passing touchdowns and six interceptions. Additionally, Arizona had its worst defensive performance of the season last week against the Seattle Seahawks, which is not something you want to see right before the playoffs. Maybe you don't think the Rams are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but they have enough talent to win this game against a team that floundered down the stretch." -- CBS Sports' Jordan Dajani is laying the points and rolling with the Rams to advance over the Cardinals.
