The Arizona Cardinals might just be the antidote for what's ailing the Los Angeles Rams.The Rams (11-3) are the NFL West champions again Infant David Edwards Jersey , and have the NFC's second-best record behind New Orleans (12-2). But Los Angeles has lost two in a row, 15-6 at Chicago and, last week, 30-23 to Philadelphia.So the Cardinals (3-11), 1-6 at home and at the bottom of the NFL standings under first-year coach Steve Wilks, would seem a welcome opponent when the teams square off Sunday in Arizona's final home game of its difficult season.Of course, Rams coach Sean McVay would never say that even if he thought it was true."That's certainly not our attitude," he said. "Our attitude is that we have a lot of respect for this football team and for coach Wilks, and we've got to be ready to go. There's a lot of great players on both sides - proven, high-caliber players, some Hall of Fame players, perennial Pro Bowl players. We've got to be ready to go."The Cardinals were gashed for a season-worst 215 yards on the ground in their 40-14 blowout loss at Atlanta last week. The could mean a big day for Todd Gurley, if he's healthy. McVay indicated on Wednesday he expected his prolific running back to play after being limited by knee inflammation this week."We expect that if he progresses the way that we anticipate, that he'll be ready to go David Edwards Jersey nfl draft ," McVay said.Gurley didn't have a big day statistically but ran for three touchdowns in Los Angeles' 34-0 home rout of Arizona in Week 2.Jared Goff threw for 354 yards in that game, but is going through a rough stretch. In the last three games, he's thrown for one touchdown and been intercepted six times."I think each game is independent of each other," he said. "I don't think there's one singular thing. Look at last game, made a couple dumb plays that hurt us and you can't do that."The Rams are two-touchdown favorites. Here are some things to consider about the game:FITZGERALD'S FINALEThis might be Larry Fitzgerald's final home game of his spectacular 15-year NFL career. Then again, it might not.Fitzgerald, as is his custom, was not at all forthcoming on the subject of his retirement when the subject was broached Thursday."If I decide to retire, I'll let you guys know, seriously," he said. "So I don't know why we keep asking these questions. You know me. I've been answering for the last three years. Nothing's going to change."In other words, when he decides, he'll let everyone know.Fitzgerald has caught a pass in 226 consecutive games and recently passed Jerry Rice's record for most catches with one team. With a TD catch on Sunday, he'd have 19 in his career against the Rams. Only Rice has more against a single team Tyler Higbee Jersey , 25 against Atlanta and 20 against the Rams.GOFF'S CONFIDENCEGoff said he thought that toward the end of the Philadelphia game, the Rams got back to being themselves on offense."I felt like we moved the ball really well and we were able to build off some things there and able to kind of take what the defense was giving us," he said. "I felt like I learned a lot in the last game and was able to grow."Goff said it's not that defenses are figuring them out."I think it always comes back to us, just doing what we do 鈥?executing," he said. "Defenses are going to present different looks every game and that's no excuse. It happens every game. It's happened every game we've played this year. So, it just comes down to us executing and being our best and just really focusing on the details."RAM BACKSWith Gurley's status a bit shaky, the Rams signed veteran running back C.J. Anderson this week.Even if Gurley plays, there could be some action for Anderson."Could really see him playing a role this week," McVay said, "very sharp, cerebral player. He's played in some systems very similar in terms of the verbiage, some of the things we try to emphasize specific to the running game and in protection."PHAROH SWITCHReturn specialist and wide receiver Pharoh Cooper went from a Super Bowl contender to a leading candidate for the No. 1 draft pick this week when he was waived by Los Angeles and claimed by the Cardinals."It's going to be great to see all those guys," he said of facing the Rams so soon. "I've built so many relationships with them. That's still family over there, but at the end of the day I play for the Cardinals now."HOLIDAY SACKSArizona defensive end Chandler Jones is donating $20 Taylor Rapp Jersey Cheap ,000 for every sack he gets in the final two games 鈥?against the Rams and Seattle 鈥?to Phoenix Children's Hospital. He has 5 1-2 career sacks against Los Angeles and 8 1-2 against the Seahawks. Aaron Donald and a dominant defense kept taking the ball away for Los Angeles and Todd Gurley turned those turnovers into touchdowns to keep the Rams unbeaten after seven games.Todd Gurley scored three touchdowns and Jared Goff threw two TD passes as the Rams took advantage of four takeaways and a blocked punt to beat the San Francisco 49ers 39-10 on Sunday for their first 7-0 start since 1985."With the offense we have to just keep feeding and feeding them ball," Donald said. "If we do that, they are going to put points on the board. Our offense is so explosive. We know that if we give them the ball good things are going to happen."Donald and the defense made things easy for the Rams high-powered offense with seven sacks, two interceptions against C.J. Beathard and two fumble recoveries, including one that Donald just ripped out of Matt Breida's hands.That was perhaps Donald's best play on a day full of great ones as he had four sacks, six tackles for loss, five quarterback hits, the forced fumble and fumble recovery."One of the best defensive performances I've been around," Goff said. "It seemed like every time we sat down we got back up and went on the field. ... It was just a lot of fun to watch."The Rams started 6-0 for three straight seasons from 1999-2001 only to lose game seven. The 49ers (1-6) made sure that wouldn't happen this year by repeatedly giving the ball away, justifying the decision the NFL made to flex this game out of prime time following the season-ending knee injury to San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo."It's always embarrassing when you lose like that," coach Kyle Shanahan said. "We've got pride and we're also confident in what we do. We're not proud of our record right now. We're definitely not proud of today. When we played better, we still feel the same way. We're not into any moral victories here. We're as far away from one as we could have today. We have to fix the turnovers. Once we fix the turnovers, then we have a chance to start playing football."Beathard has thrown seven interceptions and lost three fumbles in four starts as the 49ers have committed 14 straight turnovers since their last takeaway on Sept. 30 against the Chargers.The Rams dominated defensively even beyond Donald's performance. Cory Littleton having two sacks and a blocked punt for a safety ; and Troy Hill and John Johnson III also intercepted passes.The turnovers set up 24 points for the Rams, who put up the big scoring day despite gaining a season-low 331 yards of offense.GOOD GURLEYGurley scored on a 7-yard run in the second quarter after a fumble by Breida and 1-yard run after Johnson's interception in the third. He capped his fifth three-touchdown game of the past two seasons with a 12-yard catch after JoJo Natson had a 36-yard punt return to the 13.Gurley's 14 TDs this season tie Priest Holmes (2002 Taylor Rapp Jersey Womens , '04) for the most through seven games in the Super Bowl era.GIVE IT AWAYThe Niners had a minus-1 turnover margin through the first 14 quarters of the season and are minus-14 over the last 14 quarters, matching a franchise worst with a minus-15 turnover margin through seven games set by the 1980 team. During one particularly rough stretch in the first half, the 49ers had a five-play sequence of lost fumble, fumbled snap, incomplete pass, sack and blocked punt."You can always work on protecting it better," Beathard said. "I think it comes down to a mindset and just not letting it happen."INJURIESRams DB Troy Hill left in the first half to be evaluated for a possible concussion but was able to return. ... The 49ers lost S Adrian Colbert (sprained right ankle), LB Reuben Foster (sprained shoulder) and Breida (ankle) during the game.STATUESThe 49ers unveiled statues of Joe Montana and Dwight Clark before the game commemorating "The Catch" that launched a dynasty in the 1980s. The statues are 23 yards apart 鈥?the same distance that was between Montana and Clark on the game-winning play during the NFC title game win over Dallas on Jan. 10, 1982.UP NEXTRams: Host Green Bay on Sunday.49ers: Visit Arizona on Sunday.
