The Week 14 edition of Monday Night Football will feature the top two teams in the NFC West as the Arizona Cardinals host the LA Rams for their second meeting this season. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Cardinals are set as 3-point home favorites against the visiting Rams, with a total of 52 points. Last time these two division rivals faced off was on October 2, when the Cardinals won 37-20 at SoFi Stadium.
Arizona enters the matchup as the third-highest scoring team in the league (28.6 ppg) thanks to the stellar play of QB Kyler Murray. Unfortunately for Murray, that play was interrupted when he sustained a high ankle sprain at the end of October. After missing three weeks, Murray returned last Sunday to lead the Cardinals to a 33-22 road victory over the Bears.
With Matthew Stafford at the helm, the Rams offense has improved from last season and are sixth in the league with 28.0 points a game. They are looking to get back on track after losing three of their last four games. Fortunately for them, a game against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars gave them an easy 37-7 victory in Week 13. If the upcoming matchup against the Rams comes down to defense, the LA will have a hard time competing against their Arizona rivals, who surrender only 18.7 points a game.
