Collision course with potential implications

By Mike Sando


A St. Louis victory and an Arizona defeat in Week 11 would move the Rams ahead of the Cardinals in the NFC West standings heading into their Week 12 matchup at University of Phoenix Stadium.

That thought recalled what happened when the teams met in Week 12 last season. The Cardinals, boosted by Patrick Peterson's return touchdown, prevailed by a 23-20 score on Jay Feely's 22-yard field goal with 4:09 remaining.

The Rams would not win another game all season. Arizona finished strong, evening its record at 8-8.

These shoes look familiar. Might they be on opposite feet this time?
