Week 5

Thursday's game
Cardinals (4-0) @ Rams (2-2)-- Arizona has now won last 10 games that were decided by less than 7 points; three of their four wins this year came down to last minute, so long travel on short work week could be dicey, seeing how Rams won both home games (albeit both wins came vs rookie QBs). Cardinals won 10 of last 11 series games, winning last seven visits here by average score of 29-20, but these Rams aren't those Rams, having forced 8 turnovers in four games (+2). Problem for St Louis is porous OL; they've run ball for just 134 yards on 44 carries (3.0/carry) in last two games, scoring one TD, and that on 52-yard drive. Home teams are 10-12 vs spread in divisional games so far this season. Average total in last four series games was 32.5.

Week 5

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tale of the tape: Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The NFC West takes the Thursday night stage for a showdown between the undefeated Arizona Cardinals and the improving St. Louis Rams. Here’s the tale of the tape for this divisional matchup:

Offense

The Cardinals are on their second QB of the season after No. 1 John Skelton went down with an ankle injury in Week 1. Kevin Kolb has stepped in under center, helping Arizona to a 4-0 mark. Kolb has a 7-2 TD-to-INT ratio, a 62.6 percent completion rate and a QB rating of 97.6. It helps having a WR like Larry Fitzgerald (245 yards, two TDs) and a budding target in Andre Roberts, who has hauled in four TD catches. The Cardinals' rushing attack is ranked 28th in the league, averaging only 68.8 yards per game. Rookie Ryan Williams leads the team with 131 yards but has already fumbled twice.

The Rams offense is among the worst in the NFL, averaging only 19.8 points on 287 yards per game. Quarterback Sam Bradford has struggled the past two games, posting a 52.4 completion rate, zero TDs and three INTs. St. Louis’ big offensive weapon, RB Steven Jackson, has been slowed due to injury, rushing for only 195 yards - 3.3 yards per carry – and has failed to find the end zone.

Edge: Arizona


Defense

Arizona’s stop unit has a bend-but-don’t-break mentality, sitting 17th in yards allowed (357 per game) but third in points allowed (15.2 per game). The Cardinals’ speedy pass rush is getting to opposing QBs, totaling 16 sacks on the year so far – second most in the NFL. Linebacker Sam Acho leads the team with three QB kills. Arizona is allowing 101 yards on the ground per game, 14th in the NFL, and locked Miami down for just 86 yards rushing in Week 4. The Cardinals have forced seven fumbles, recovering six of those – one for a TD.

St. Louis is among the best ball-hawking teams in the league, picking off eight passes through the first four weeks of the schedule. Three of those came against Detroit last week. Corner Cortland Finnegan has three INTs in his first four games since being acquired this offseason. While the pass defense has been respectable, the Rams have been rolled by the run, giving up 135.2 yards per game on the ground. Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch rumbled for 118 yards and a TD against St. Louis last Sunday.

Edge: St. Louis


Special teams

Arizona kicker Jay Feely gave the Cardinals a 24-21 win over Miami in overtime with a 46-yard FG. He’s 7-for-7 on the season and is 3-for-3 on FGs of more than 40 yards this season. Arizona has punted a league-high 26 times, averaging 47.5 yards per punt. On the other side of that, the Cardinals have averaged only 7.9 yards per punt return and 24.9 yards per kickoff return. Top return man Patrick Peterson’s longest punt return has been 17 yards.

The Rams have also been perfect on FGs with kicker Greg Zuerlein going 12 for 12, including going 3 for 3 from 50-plus yards. St. Louis is averaging 46.6 yards per punt while allowing foes to return those for just 8.2 yards per punt. The Rams return team ranks last in the league in kickoff returns (17.8 yards per) and 18th in punt returns (9.1 yards per). Receiver Danny Amendola has been fielding punts, with his biggest return standing at 22 yards this season.

Edge: Draw


Word on the street

“Honestly, it’s going to feel the same as any other game. It doesn’t matter how many people are watching, you just go out there play the game." – St. Louis K Greg Zuerlein about kicking under the pressure of a primetime game.

“That’s the confidence we have late in games. Our offense believes in our defense and our defense believes in our offense. That’s what helps us win.” – Arizona WR Andre Roberts on the team’s success late in games.

NFL Week 5 Preview: Broncos at Patriots

DENVER BRONCOS (2-2)

at NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (2-2)


Kickoff: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. EDT
Line: New England -6½, Total: 52

The Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry resumes Sunday afternoon when Denver visits New England, a matchup of 2-2 teams coming off lopsided victories.

While Bill Belichick and the Patriots defense once had Manning’s number, Manning (with the Colts) has beaten them in five of his past seven meetings, SU and ATS. Manning is coming off his best game with the Broncos, going 30-for-38 for 338 yards, 3 TD and no turnovers in a win over Oakland. The Pats offense looked human before Brady and Company exploded for 45 second-half points in last week’s win in Buffalo. Wes Welker was worked back into the game plan, and the Pats’ 52 points came despite two lost fumbles and two missed field goals.

Although Peyton Manning hasn’t had great success in Foxboro, he has exploded in his past three visits to Gillette Stadium, completing 86-of-125 passes (69%) for 1,043 yards (348 YPG), 9 TD and 5 INT. He’s also coming into this game with great confidence after his Week 4 explosion, where he didn’t take a single sack. Although Manning got all the headlines, the running game was also outstanding last week with 165 rushing yards, including 112 on just 19 carries (5.9 YPC) by Willis McGahee. Denver’s defense has been much improved under new defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, allowing just 88 rushing YPG (9th in NFL) and 221 passing YPG (13th in league). Last year, the team allowed 126 rushing YPG (22nd in NFL) and 232 passing YPG (18th in league). Houston is the only team that has rushed for more than 75 yards against the Broncos this year, and is the only club that gained at least 210 yards on them through the air.

Brady is 8-4 all-time versus Manning, including a 2-1 record in the playoffs. Last season, Brady lit up Denver in the postseason, throwing for 363 yards and six touchdowns. He also burned the Broncos for 320 passing yards and 3 total TD in a 41-23 win in the mile-high altitude last December. Last week, Brady orchestrated six straight touchdown drives in Buffalo. New England had great balance on offense, as both RBs Stevan Ridley and Brandon Bolden surpassed 100 yards rushing and WR Wes Welker and TE Rob Gronkowski had more than 100 receiving yards against the Bills. Although New England’s pass defense has allowed a whopping 722 passing yards over the past two weeks, the team has forced 11 turnovers on the season, including six in Buffalo
