2012 NFL schedule: Rams need another win over Cardinals

Dilip Vishwanat

The St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals both need a win to stay in the playoff hunt. They face each other on Sunday.

The playoffs could be slightly out of reach for the St. Louis Rams, and they face what could equate to a must-win situation on Sunday against a fellow division rival that is also looking to stay afloat -- the Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams haven't won since Oct. 4 against these same Cardinals, which at the time gave the Rams a 3-2 record. Now at 3-6-1 (a record that includes a tie against the division-leading San Francisco 49ers two weeks ago) and coming off a home loss to the New York Jets, the Rams are on the fringe of the playoff race. Another win over Arizona could keep hopes alive.

The Cardinals are coming off a disappointing loss on the road to the NFC-leading Atlanta Falcons. Arizona forced six turnovers, including picking off quarterback Matt Ryan five times, but couldn't hold on for the upset win. It was the sixth loss in a row after a 4-0 start for the Cardinals, who find themselves fighting for their playoff lives after such a promising start.

The Rams and Cardinals meet Sunday in Glendale, Ariz., at 3:25 p.m. CT. The game will be televised by FOX. Here is this week's full NFL schedule, which includes three games on Thanksgiving Day. All times are Central.
