The race to Super Bowl LVI began on Saturday with two games, Sunday gave us three and we’re now down to one game for Super Wild Card Weekend in the NFL with Monday night’s matchup between NFC West foes, the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals.
That’s right — betting on playoff football! If you want to stay sharp over the course of the weekend and are looking for a bit of help doing so, you’ve come to the right place.

How to watch the Arizona Cardinals and LA Rams in the NFL playoffs?
Standing and screaming.
That’s the recommended method. Whether with joy or agony, well, that’s the question. It’s been such an up and down season for Arizona, and the last few weeks have definitely been the down part. After starting the season 7-0, it’s been a bumpy ride for the Cardinals, including losing four of their last five.
So yeah, “on edge” is also a pretty good way to describe the mood for watching. That sounds a little more optimistic than “with dread” or “an impending sense of doom.”
What time is the ‘Monday Night Football’ playoff game on ESPN?
It’s the first-ever playoff game on “Monday Night Football,” and ESPN is offering a few options. Whether any of them will be worth watching ultimately is up to the Cardinals and the Rams, of course, but at least there’s some variety.
The traditional broadcast, with Steve Levy doing play-by-play and Brian Griese and Louis Riddick providing analysis, starts at 6 p.m. Arizona time on ESPN. This will also air locally on ABC 15.
“Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” will also cover the game, starting at 6:15 p.m. Arizona time on ESPN2 and ESPN+. I like the Manning brothers in this format, though some don’t. It’s the best alternative broadcast anyone’s come up with yet, and there have been many attempts.
Los Angeles have won 11 out of their last 14 games against Arizona.
