Arizona Cardinals (6-3) at St. Louis Rams (1-8) ==================================================

KICKOFF: Sunday, 4:05 ET
GAMEDATE: 11/22/09
SURFACE: FieldTurf
TV: FOX (Ron Pitts, John Lynch)
PREDICTION: Cardinals 31-17

KEYS TO THE GAME: The Rams are coming off a season-high 23 points last Sunday. Problem is, the Cardinals haven't scored fewer than 24 all year. And with rookie RB Beanie Wells providing a physical running presence, the Cardinals bring a balance of playmakers the Rams will have difficulty coping with. Defensively, Arizona's run defense has leveled off after a blazing start. The Rams will lean on RB Steven Jackson early and hope they can sustain drives, control the clock and set up play-action against an Arizona secondary that does suffer lapses in the deep passing game (32 completions of 20-plus yards).

Need to know: The Cardinals are 4-0 and winning by an average of 16.3 points on the road. ... The Rams have a nine-game home losing streak.
