It's somewhat of a tossup when the Cardinals and Rams -- the two worst NFC West teams -- meet in Arizona. But see who the experts picked below.

When the Cardinals and Rams get together on Sunday, the only safe prediction is that the Missouri and Arizona will be the only states watching this game. Enjoy the visual confirmation below, then we'll get to the expert picks.

Cardinals Rams

As for the matchup, the expert picks are pretty evenly split. The Cardinals and Rams share the basement in the NFC West with woeful, matching 1-6 records. Each team has won their lone game at home, swinging the advantage to Arizona. But the Cardinals will likely be without starting quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King likes the Rams to win. But he really likes the idea of not watching this game.

Now I wouldn't say this, but I'm sure there are some who'd rather watch the four-hour Kim and Kris Nuptials on rerun than three hours of Rams-Cards live. Maybe even some males.


The panel is leaning 5-3 in favor of the Cardinals, while three out of five experts at are taking the Cardinals as well
