Arizona returns from a much-needed bye week, as the defending NFC West champions currently sit at 3-4-1 on the season. The Cardinals have been a roller-coaster ride of a team to watch as they have had flashes of brilliance along with some very inconsistent play on both sides of the ball.
The Saints (3-4) march into this contest, having won three of their last four games. All four of those contests had close finishes. They have won or lost every game this season except for one by six points or fewer.
Cowboys. 49ers. Who can forget their historic NFC Championship Game matchups in the early 1990s? Troy Aikman vs. Steve Young, two Hall of Fame quarterbacks duelling in consecutive years. Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith on one side, G.O.A.T. Jerry Rice on the other. The Cowboys bested the 49ers in both matchups, the penultimate step in their journey to back-to-back Super Bowl victories.
The second game of a Monday Night Football double-header will feature the San Francisco 49ers playing host to their NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams. Tonight will mark the first time since the 1994 season that the Rams will take the field for a regular season football game under the Los Angeles moniker.
