Found October 03, 2012 on Fox Sports:
When you casually reviewed the Thursday night schedule at the end of the preseason, I'm fairly certain that you whizzed right past this Week 5 matchup between the Rams and Cardinals. Sure, you were looking forward to tracking potential Larry Fitzgerald points. You certainly weren't anticipating a matchup between an undefeated Arizona squad and a 2-2 Rams squad under Jeff Fisher. Let's set the table. The Cardinals won three of their first four games by four points or fewer, adding a blowout home win over the Eagles for good measure. The Rams eked out narrow wins over the Seahawks and Redskins by a combined nine points, narrowly lost to the Lions in Week 1 after leading much of the game and fell in an uninspired game against the Bears in Week 3 by 20 points. Now that you've caught up, it's time to assess the Week 5 opener. On paper, it's a fantastic matchup for Ryan Williams of the Cardinals. The Rams have allowed 130 total yards and 1.25 touchdowns per gam...

Arizona Cardinals' John Skelton may be activated for Rams game

John Skelton – remember him? It seems like a long time ago when he was the Arizona Cardinals' starting quarterback (week one actually). It does seem like a long time ago though. Anyway, Skelton, recovering from a low ankle sprain, may finally be healthy enough to be activated for Thursday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Skelton certainly won't start in place of Kevin...

Thursday Night Football: Breaking Down The Props, Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams

As the second quarter of the NFL season begins, we have a huge swing game in the suddenly resurgent and physical NFC West. And here’s the kicker: The game doesnt involve the San Fransisco 49ers. Instead it’s the unbeaten and Kevin Kolb-led Arizona Cardinals taking to the road, trying to stay perfect, against the 2-2 Rams. This was supposed to be a 49er runaway in this division...

Arizona Cardinals' fantasy football preview for week 5

St. Louis Rams clip the Arizona Cardinals’ perfect season

As I sat here, it was rather embarrassing that the Arizona Cardinals were even undefeated to this point.  They have to horrible quarterbacks, no running game and the offensive line is just horrendous.  All of this was exposed tonight in St. Louis as the Rams put a 17-3 beat down on the Arizona Cardinals.  The score might not show it, but this game was one-sided from the beginning...

Danny Amendola leaves tonight’s game with a shoulder injury

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola left tonight’s game against the Rams early with a shoulder injury. Amendola injured his shoulder in the second quarter while trying to making a catch he fell on his shoulder.  It looks like he may have separated it. By the looks of Amendola’s reaction as he headed to the locker room, he looked he was pretty upset.

Cardinals' offense implodes in loss to Rams

ST. LOUIS Kevin Kolb trudged toward the locker room, his gray hat flipped backward and his lips pursed, his once-unbeaten Arizona Cardinals unhinged and his offense a mangled wreck. The roar at the Edward Jones Dome was muffled behind him as he mumbled words to wide receiver Andre Roberts in a dimmed corridor. The siege that scrambled the harried quarterback was over, the results...

Report: Danny Amendola has a broken collarbone

According to Pro Football Talk via Dov Kleiman, St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola suffered a broken collarbone during tonight’s win over the Cardinals. Amendola was quarterback Sam Bradford’s most reliable target and now it looks like his season is over.

Cardinals vs. Rams Thursday Night Pick Against the Spread

ARIZONA CARDINALS @ ST. LOUIS RAMS (+2) I’m taking the Rams tonight. This is solely a situtional play for me here. 60% of the public likes the Cardinals. The Rams are at home twice in a row where they start the season 2-0. They found a win over the Seahawks and beat the Redskins at home thus far this year. The Cardinals aren’t going 16-0 and they should have lost to the Dolphins...

Rams 101 fantasy report week 4: Trending forward

Through a quarter of the young 2012 season, many NFL teams have either fulfilled or sabotaged the predictions of experts and fans alike.
