The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams will be playing their first of two regular-season meetings on Thursday, when the teams will meet for a divisional showdown on Thursday Night Football.

The Cardinals have been one of football's greatest stories this year as the team is undefeated at 4-0 despite key injuries to their offensive line and being predicted by some to be one of the worst teams this year.

Meanwhile, the Rams will enter the game 2-2 but have played much better than that. The team lost a close game to the Lions in their season opener, but were unable to get anything going at all in week 3 against the Bears. Also, the team is 2-0 at home and will be facing the Cardinals with their home field advantage behind them.

With that being said, do NFL experts believe the Cardinals can continue their undefeated season for at least another week, or do they believe the Rams will have something to say about that?

Only three ESPN NFL experts have the Rams winning at home over the Cardinals in a short week. However, six experts on ESPN's panel have yet to turn in their picks. Mike Silver and Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports are split on the game, with Silver taking the Cardinals to remain undefeated and Cole believing the Rams will pull it out.
