Quick Pick: Cardinals @ Rams

Arizona (-1.5) at St. Louis

Ryan: I watched a good portion of the Rams’ upset win against the Seahawks last week and this St. Louis team is a lot better than people realize. Jeff Fisher, whose presence I’ll acknowledge having underrated in my NFL Preview, seems to have turned around their defense pretty quickly. They are second in the NFL with eight interceptions (the Bears lead the league with 11). Their offense, meanwhile, looked better against Seattle’s strong D than the Packers did the week before.

The Cardinals are 4-0, but I’m not sold on them yet. As Bill Barnwell pointed out, they only narrowly beat the 1-3 Dolphins after recovering all six of both teams’ fumbles last week. I’m gonna go with the home team and the points here. Rams cover.

Asif: I’m not really sure why this line is so low. It’s a three-way tie between Arizona, San Francsico and Seattle for best defense in the NFL (maybe you can put the Bears in there too, though I wonder how much of last week’s performance is due to their ability and how much is just Romo-derp) and I’d honestly give the edge to Arizona because of Calais Campbell. St. Louis is better than people think (Jeff Fisher is the best coach in the NFL without a ring), but I don’t see them pulling this one out. Arizona covers.
