In the first weekend of the NFL playoffs, we have two unexpected teams facing off in this timeslot. As both squads were expected to take the number one seed on multiple occasions over the course of the season.
However, Aaron Rodgers continues to do spectacular things and grappled the number one seed. Which in return, results in a banger of a matchup on tap for Monday Night Football.
The Cardinals and Kyler Murray will be looking to upset their Division leader, Los Angeles Rams on route to the second round of this years playoffs. Unfortunately, Arizona may be in over their heads as they’ve lost 4 out of their last 5 games, including a 30-23 loss to the LA Rams.
Offensively, The Cardinals are averaging 373.6 total yards per game, resulting in an impressive 26.4 points per game. Moreover, they’re ranked 4th across the NFL for turnovers, as they’ve only turned the ball over 14 times all year.
On the defensive side, Arizona’s imposingly ranked 11th for total yards against, by only allowing 329.4 per outing. Furthermore, they’ve managed to cause 27 takeaways this season, which ranks 8th.
Additionally, The Cardinals boast an extravagant +13 turnover rate, but are allowing 114.8 rush yards per game(20th).
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams ended the season on a splendid 5-1 run, after unfortunately losing 3 games in a row in November. This slide caused a ton of hesitancy with the public on their expected Super Bowl run, however this spun back around after their run towards the playoffs.
Offensively speaking, LA’s ranked 9th for total yards by scoring 372.1 per game on average. However, their offense mainly comes from Stafford and Co as they’re only ranked 25th for rushing yards per game, by averaging 99.0 per matchup.
To boot, the constant passing attempts by The Rams have caused 18 turnovers, which places them a very poor 23rd in the NFL.
Defensively, Aaron Donald and Von Miller dominate the line as opponents are only averaging 103.2 rush yards per game, which ranks 6th. However, they’re allowing 241.7 pass yards per game, which ranks an unfortunate 23rd.
Moreover, Los Angeles has only caused 11 takeaways all year, ranking 24th across the league. Stats combined, this squad has a -7 turnover ratio, which may prove detrimental in the playoffs.

Moreover, Arizona leans on Kyler Murray’s rushing attack to overwhelm opponents, unfortunately for Kyler he’ll have two of the best rushers in NFL history in their sights, all night long.
