Amidst rumors there is mutual interest between New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and the Rams regarding their vacant head coaching position after Jeff Fisher was fired a few weeks back, the Rams look to end their disappointing first year back in the City of Angels with a win against an equally disappointing Arizona Cardinals team Sunday at the Coliseum.
After a three and one start of the season, the Rams (4 - 11) have lost 10 of their last eleven heading into the season finale against the Cardinals (6 - 8- 1) who were just one win shy of reaching Super Bowl 50 at the end of last season.
Both teams look to regroup for next season by, first, getting a win to start off the new year.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer returns to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum for the first time since throwing four touchdowns in his final game quarterbacking USC to a win over Notre Dame in November of 2002, a season in which he led the Trojans to an Orange Bowl win and earning himself the Heisman Trophy.
For the Rams, rookie quarterback and 2016 top overall draft pick Jared Goff will look for his first professional win in his seventh career start since taking over the reigns from Case Keenum.
The Rams beat the Cardinals in Week 4 in Glendale - which seems like eons ago - 17-13. That put the Rams in first place with a 3 - 1 record.
