I think it’s fair to say that Week 5 is around the time where team’s identities are starting to be a lot more solidified than before. It was great to see the proper refs back, and obviously they made some mistakes, like always, but everything was smoother and cleaner. Except for the massive hike in PI calls. Seriously, they need to fix that stupid rule. Anyhow, onto another fantastic bye-week schedule.
Thursday Night Football
Arizona at St. Louis: This week gets underway with a division battle between the Rams and Cardinals. Two teams who can both hold their own in the NFL these days. With the Cardinals being 4-0, it would seem like a bit of a gimme for them, but don’t underestimate the Rams. Their defense is underrated and division games are always more high-stakes and closer than other games. I do think Arizona will triumph, but it should be a good test and game.
Prediction: Arizona 21, St. Louis 16
