Arizona Cardinals vs Los Angeles Rams 01/03/2021
The Arizona Cardinals are now cramming to get back in the playoff picture as they are forced to win their last game of the season. This team is coming off from a tough loss against the San Francisco 49ers and it was by a wide margin of eight points, 12-20. Their other option to clinch the playoffs is getting a tie against the Los Angeles Rams and hope the Chicago Bears lose. This is going to test Kyler Murray if he is ready to lead this team to the playoffs on this very important matchup. Against the 49ers, he had 60% completion and 247 yards. It was subpar and not enough to get the team on top over a non-playoff contender.
Players to watch: K. Murray QB (GP 14 CMP 367 ATT 547 CMP% 67.1 YDS 3884 AVG 7.1 YDS/G 313.3 LNG 80 TD 26 INT 12 SACK 25 SYL 160 RTG 94.3), K. Drake RB (GP 13 ATT 229 YDS 919 AVG 4 LNG 69 BIG 6 TD 10 YDS/G 65.6 FUM 3 LST 1 FD 56), D. Hopkins WR (GP 14 REC 111 TGTS 150 YDS 1372 AVG 12.4 TD 6 LNG 60 BIG 17 YDS/G 91.5 FUM 3 LST 2 YAC 501 FD 73).
Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams are fighting to hold their position in the National Football Conference playoff picture. Aside from winning this game against the Arizona Cardinals to get in the playoffs, this team can back on the Chicago Bears losing but that is not in their control. Luck may not be on the side of the Rams as Jared Goff will be missing this game due to an injury with a thumb fracture. John Wolford will be the team’s QB for this important matchup and the young quarterback suddenly under the most pressure he is in throughout his NFL career. Much is expected from him since he is the only QB on the 53-man roster.
Players to Watch: J. Goff QB (GP 14 CMP 346 ATT 509 CMP% 68 YDS 3718 AVG 7.3 YDS/G 271 LNG 56 TD 20 INT 12 SACK 20 SYL 143 RTG 92.4), C.
