Tonight’s matchup will be the sixth and last game of the NFL’s wildcard weekend. The final game of the wildcard round features the Arizona Cardinals who will travel west to Inglewood California tonight to take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams made it into the 2021 season’s NFC Playoffs by winning their division. The Cardinals, the second-place team in their division earned their berth into the NFC’s playoffs by way of one of three wildcard spots. Arizona ended the season as the fifth seed in the NFC’s playoff seeding and earned the first wildcard spot.
The Rams enter the game as a favorite by just a bit over a field goal. The Rams ended their regular season on a low note, dropping their last game to their division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, by a 27 to 24 score at home. Prior to the loss last week the Rams had gone on a five-game winning streak. The Cardinals started out the 2021 season red hot, ripping off seven games in a row. The Cardinals then ended the season by losing four of their last five games including their final game of the season to their division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks, by a 38 to 30 score.
