The Rams (9-4) are back in the win column following a three-game losing streak but have already lost once to this Cardinals team this season. In this post, we’ll be making our Rams Week 14 predictions.

Both teams have grown since then and this week’s Rams-Cardinals matchup figures to be much different than the last one. The Rams are surely hoping so, and if they are going to get back into this divisional race, here are four things they can do that will help.

Los Angeles Rams Week 14 predictions

4. The Rams will get two interceptions

After not playing in November, Kyler Murray returned to his Cardinals team last week against the Bears and lead his team to yet another victory. Murray has only thrown two picks twice all year, once against the Minnesota Vikings in Week Two and once in a loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week Eight. If the Rams can force Murray into two picks on Sunday and get themselves an early two-score lead, it is hard to see the Cardinals winning the game. Minnesota has a defense that is vulnerable and the Rams have one that is opportunistic so if you give them a lead, they will pin their ears back and ruin your night.

3. Sony Michel will run for two scores

With Darrell Henderson missing last week’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, backup running back Sony Michel took 24 carries for 124 yards and a touchdown. That has led to a mini running back controversy with McVay recently saying that he sees room for both backs in the Rams offense moving forward. That does not mesh with what McVay has done in the past, however, as he has usually been a one-back system coach. Henderson missed practice time this week and could be questionable for Monday night, at best. In his stead, Michel will once again dominate out of the backfield and this time it will result in two scores instead of just one.

2. Aaron Donald will have two sacks 

Donald is still waiting on his first two-sack performance of the season and much of that is due to constant double teams. They have lessened in the weeks since the arrival of Von Miller and this week it will culminate in Donald’s best game of the year. In a game that the Rams have to win, Donald will step up and make Murray’s life miserable from start to finish.

1. Matthew Stafford will be error-free

This is the big one. Stafford infamously threw an interception returned for a touchdown in three straight games. In doing so, he became the first player since Matt Schaub in 2014 to do so. Stafford broke the streak last week in a three-touchdown, error-free game against the Jaguars. If he does the same and does not turn the ball over, he will not need the three touchdowns to win this one and the Rams will get themselves right back into the NFC West race.
