The Cardinals survived a scare after being down to the Jaguars in the first half, and the Rams beat the defending champion Buccaneers. Though there were differing circumstances, both teams are undefeated at 3-0 and 2-1 against the spread.
The Cardinals are ranked by Football Outsiders as 4th in the league through three weeks, while the Rams are ranked 3rd. The Rams are ranked about where they were expected before the season started, but the Cardinals are performing much better than expected. PFF has these teams ranked similarly, but with LA ranked above the Cardinals with a wider margin.
It looked like the Jaguars were going to get their first win under Trevor Lawrence early in the game, but then both teams showed their true colors and Arizona took over. They were losing at halftime and ended up covering the 8-point spread rather easily.
Kyler Murray had an interception but was overall decent. He had a 93.1 passer rating with 316 yards and a rushing touchdown. WRs Kirk and Green both had over 100 yards receiving, and James Conner had two rushing TDs.
The defense was pretty good with the defensive line and linebackers getting pressures and sacks. The secondary was good with Murphy Jr. leading the way with an interception returned for a TD for his second pick of the day.
Through three games the regular season win total increased for the Cardinals from 8.5 to 10.5. They have had the 21st most difficult schedule so far and have the 13th going forward.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams must be feeling good about themselves after the pretty decisive win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. It was a good matchup for them, especially with all the injuries on the TB defense.
Stafford finished with a 134 passer rating with 4 TDs and 343 yards compared to Brady’s 103 rating with 1 TD and 432 yards. Brady was the Buccaneers’ leading rusher with 14 yards whereas Michel had 67 yards on the ground for the Rams. LA should be able to run more on this Arizona team.
The weakness for the Rams is their secondary outside of Jalen Ramsey. Brady was able to throw for 400+ yards on them, but I don’t see Murray taking advantage of this. He tends to throw short passes and run when nothing is there.
He’ll need to get the passes out quickly, as Aaron Donald and the rest of the defensive line tend to get pressures no matter who they play. Arizona has a good pass rush, but LA largely shut down Tampa’s, so it might not be as effective. Stafford should still have time to hit Desean Jackson down the field like last game.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Los Angeles Rams -4.5
The Rams are the bet in this game. Although the Cardinals have been impressive and LA should be overvalued after beating the Bucs, the advantages in just about every area coupled with home field advantage should be too much for Arizona to overcome.
