In ESPN’s Week 7 NFL Picks and Predictions, there were only three games for which a panel of ten NFL experts unanimously picked a winner.

The Arizona Cardinals’ matchup in London on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams was one of them.

The group submitted who they think will win each game, and all 10 of the experts said the Rams will beat the Cards. The other unanimous selections were the Titans over the Browns and the Seahawks over the Giants.

An analysis by data website FiveThirtyEight said the Cardinals actually have a 53 percent chance to win the game, but the pundits at ESPN don’t seem to think so.

The Cardinals enter the game 3-3, coming off a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just days after acquiring running back Adrian Peterson. The offense got going against Tampa Bay, a much-needed sign of life as Arizona has suffered from offensive line struggles and the loss of David Johnson in 2017.

The Rams, meanwhile, have seen strong play from several position groups, not the least of which being sophomore quarterback Jared Goff. The Cal alumnus threw for a season-low 124 yards last week in a win over the Jaguars, but his 93.2 passer rating, 60 percent completion and eight touchdowns to three interceptions this year are all way up from his numbers last year.
