CARDINALS at RAMS

When • 7:20 tonight. Line • Cardinals by 1.

Synopsis • Meandering offenses and decent defenses are the focus here. Arizona is no better than 25th (of 32 teams) in passing, rushing and total yards and the Rams are 20th in rushing, 28th in passing and 27th in total yards. Meanwhile, Arizona allows 15.2 points/game (No. 3 in the NFL) and the Rams give up 22.8 points/game, No. 17. Rams have been solid at home, and Cards go on the road for just the second time, but their first trip resulted in a major upset — a 20-18 victory at New England. They are 4-0 for the first time since 1974, when they were based in St. Louis, and this is basically a toss-up game.

Caesar's pick • RAMS 20, CARDINALS 17.
