Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Los Angeles Rams-Arizona Cardinals Week 4 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Los Angeles Rams (2-1) vs. (-8) Arizona Cardinals (1-2), 4:25 p.m.
Mike: Cardinals. Arizona is just a better team at home, especially against bad teams, and while the Rams aren’t terrible, they’re still not good. Also, the Law of Jeff Fisher says a return to .500 is in the … cards. Get it?
Ricky: Cardinals. We saw what happened in Week 2 when the Cardinals beat up on an inferior opponent on the heels of a Week 1 loss. The same should happen in Week 4 after Arizona’s surprising Week 3 setback against Buffalo.
Andre: Cardinals. The Rams aren’t putting up 30-plus points against the Cardinals, who still have the league’s best passing defense (5.7 yards per attempt). I expect — at least for a week — for Carson Palmer to clean up his act and for us to see the Cardinals of old in a bounce-back win.
