Rams hope to end recent hot streak by Cardinals in NFC West


The Los Angeles Rams face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7, who haven’t lost in each of their last six NFC West games.

In a game that could help the Los Angeles Rams remain on top of the NFC West at the moment, there will be plenty on the line when Sean McVay‘s squad faces off against the Arizona Cardinals in London during Week 7. The Rams may be coming off an impressive victory on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend, but when looking at numerous key factors, even they know this game against the Cardinals is going to be a tough one.

In fact, Arizona hasn’t lost within the division in their previous six games (5-0-1), and will look to continue that impressive streak against Los Angeles on Sunday. Sure, the Rams may be favorites to win at the moment, but thanks to the latest acquisition of Adrian Peterson, the Cardinals’ offense is all of a sudden clicking after their stellar performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6 to give them extra momentum heading into London.

Just when all hope seemed lost with Peterson following his first four games with the New Orleans Saints, the veteran running back was acquired by Arizona to help fill the void left by David Johnson in the ground game. And even though it was only one performance, it’s tough for the Rams not to be worried about the former Minnesota Vikings star after Peterson managed to rush for 134 yards with two touchdowns in his Cardinals’ debut.

With all of Arizona’s success against division rivals dating back to last season, Los Angeles better hope for a similar star to last Sunday’s game against the Jaguars in which they wasted no time putting points on the board. Otherwise, this could end up being a long road trip for the Rams before the bye, but at least Sean McVay has been doing everything in his power to prepare his team for what should be an entertaining showdown against the Cardinals.
