Monday night will mark the third matchup between these two teams this season. The Cardinals won the Week 4 game handily, 37-20. At the time, the win extended the Cardinals’ win streak to four games and they remained undefeated until Week 8.
The Cardinals managed to get into the playoffs with the No. 5 seed thanks to a strong start that allowed them to finish the regular season with an 11-6 record. But the Rams took advantage of Arizona’s second-half downturn to clinch the No. 4 seed in the conference with a 12-5 record. Los Angeles won the second matchup between the two teams, 30-23, in Week 14. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is winless in his three career playoff performances and will look to snap that streak tonight against the Cardinals.
