NFL experts weigh in on the Cardinals' matchup with the Rams this Thursday.

The undefeated Arizona Cardinals take their show on the road this Thursday as they face the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. Both teams are coming off of big wins last week at home, though the upstart Cardinals need to make sure not to overlook their divisional opponents. NFL experts have some mixed opinions on who will pull out the win this week.

The analysts over at ESPN are a mixed bag, as guys like Adam Schefter and Tom Jackson are picking the Rams, while the likes of Mike Golic and Merrill Hodge are picking Arizona.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports envisions the Cardinals remaining undefeated by the score of 21-18. It will be the first road game for Arizona since their upset of the New England Patriots in Week 2.

The folks over at Walter Football are predicting a closely contested game, with the Cardinals pulling out the win, 16-13. They also note that 70 percent of all Vegas bets have been placed on Arizona so far.
