The NFC West is kind of a mess, but both the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams are in the running going into their Sunday matchup at Twickenham Stadium in London. Their game will begin at 1 p.m. ET on FOX (live streaming via Fox Sports GO).
Los Angeles will lose a home game due to the London appearance, but crowds at the new location have been sparse to begin with. Home-field advantage doesn’t mean much to the Rams at the moment, though they hope that will change in the future.
The Rams lead the NFC West with a 4-2 record and are coming off a win in their last outing over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Prior to that, though, they lost to the Seattle Seahawks, who are starting to creep up in the division.
Arizona isn’t far behind with a 3-3 record, and they’re coming off a 38-33 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They, like the Rams, have also beaten the San Francisco 49ers in the division, though the Cardinals still have both games against the Seahawks on the horizon.
The Cardinals are feeling pretty good about picking up Adrian Peterson, who looked great in his Arizona debut. Peterson has 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns against Tampa Bay.
Quarterback Carson Palmer has been sacked 21 times — far too many — but he is at least holding up and hasn’t yet succumbed to injuries. That said, he hasn’t looked great with 154 completions for 1,856 yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions.
Jared Goff is having a good season in his second year in the NFL. Goff has completed 111 of 185 passes for 1,484 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions. It helps that Goff has only been sacked nine times on the season, and that he’s received a lot of help from running back Todd Gurley. Gurley has 521 yards and four touchdowns.
