Pre-Game Thread: Cardinals vs. Rams

Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 1/17/2022 4:13 pm
Coming into this weekend, the two most even games in my mind was Cowboys/Niners and this one right here.

I think the Rams are a hair better and they're at home, but it feels like there's a 10% chance that this becomes known as the "See, I told you Stafford was a choker" game.

To be fair, I've been kind of a Stafford doubter over the years. Maybe he goes out there and shuts people like me up. But either way, this is the most important moment of his career by miles and I'm really interested to see how he plays.

I'm going Cardinals 28-24 in a tight one that comes down to a couple of big plays.
But fan of Stafford

Would be happy if he finally won. However, not a fan at all of McVay, or Rams in general.

Going into game kind of pulling for Cardinals, curious to see if that changes during the game
Lookin forward to the Manning cast of the game on Espn 2

Thinking Murray and Hopkins steal the show on this game:

Arizona 34 Rams 24.
Screw OBJ

Go Cards.

tore his MCL. Out for the year. JJ Watt activated this afternoon and will play tonight.
Love how this is an 815 PM start on a holiday for many.

Regardless, I am rooting for Cards but think LAR win.
Rooting for the Cards

But they aren't the same team without Hopkins and Watt. I wouldn't expect Watt to be 100 even if he plays. I think LA has the edge.
I am going Cards...

..simply because I think they give the Packers a much tougher game.

A ton of pressure on Stafford tonight, esp after last week's meltdown.
Last leg in my parlay

Bet Bengals, Bills, 49ers (ML), Chiefs then Rams -4.

I think I have to hedge, just deciding how much
Yeah I’ve had this game circled all week

Along w Dallas niners.

I think the one player that can fuck up this entire nfc postseason is Kyler Murray. As much as I respect the Rams I think the cards win tonight.

Packers play 49ers regardless of tonight’s game.
The best part of yesterday

I can now watch the rest of these playoffs in peace and enjoy the games without worrying about which team would have the best chance to beat Dallas. It’s all gravy now!
Expecting Rams but rooting Cards

Can't stand McVay.
Can't root for the Ram's

Rooting for Rams and I think they will take care of business

tonight. Someone needs to make sure Chandler Jones is accounted for as he seems to get free runs at the QB too often. But assuming that is accounted for, I like how McVey utilizes his all weapons and still ensures Kupp gets a ton of targets.

Last played a few weeks ago in a Ram win that I think they played without Jalen Ramsey. Now with him, that should be plenty.

Bills Rams heading for a Super Bowl matchup?
NFL missed the mark starting this game

At 830. It’s a holiday, should have been a 630 start on the east coast
Always appreciated Stanford’s arm talent  
Lines of Scrimmage : 1/17/2022 7:41 pm : link
But agree this is a really big game for him.

I think this is Hopkins first game back. Him being out had a huge impact but who knows how much a impact he can make. Hard to imagine he’s 100 %
Wow lots of wrong on this thread
