To cap off what was an eventful NFL Week 14, we have a Monday Night Football matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals. We have seen big performances come out of these primetime matchups, and this should be no different. Let’s take a look at the four best bets for this Rams vs. Cardinals matchup.
While Matthew Stafford is struggling and clearly not healthy, he is still passing for high yardage totals. He has passed for over 280.5 yards in five of his past six games. In his career, Stafford has averaged 288.2 passing yards in night games.
With starting running back Darrell Henderson out, this passing attack will need to do even more than usual tonight.
The Rams have a true lockdown cornerback in Jalen Ramsey, and he will likely travel with DeAndre Hopkins to slow him down. This leads to second, third and fourth options needing to step up, which is exactly what rookie Rondale Moore should do.
He totaled 28 yards on three receptions the first time he faced the Rams this season, and he should see similar targets in this game.
The Rams will need to pass in often in this game. With Robert Woods out for the year and Odell Beckham Jr. still not being fully incorporated in this offense, we should see Tyler Higbee be targeted quite often in this game.
It should look similar to his last performance, where he totaled five receptions on six targets. Higbee also caught four of his six targets against the Cardinals earlier this season.
Kyler Murray took his time to return from injury, and he proved last week he was fully healthy. He looked quick, running for 59 yards and two touchdowns.
With the Rams having a few talented pass rushers up front, look for them to pressure Murray, but for him to escape the pocket and run a touchdown in.
For what it’s worth, Murray has played one Monday Night Football game in his career, and he ran for a touchdown in that game.
