Game Preview: Rams Host Cardinals in Opener

Posted Sep 3, 2013

The St. Louis Rams kickoff the 2013 season at home Sunday as they host the Arizona Cardinals at the Edward Jones Dome.

Sunday’s game will mark the 12th time the Rams and Cardinals have faced each other in Week 1. The Rams have won seven of those match ups, while Arizona took the last Kickoff Weekend contest between the two
teams. That came in 2010 when the Cardinals beat the Rams 17-13 in Week 1.

The Rams won both of last year’s meetings with the Cardinals to give St. Louis a 35-33-2 upper hand in the all-time series.

Since moving to St. Louis in 1995, the Rams are 6-4 when playing at home in Week 1. The Rams opened on the road last year but won their home opener in Week 2 when they defeated the Washington Redskins.
