The NFC West has been one of the tightest divisions in football all season long. After briefly taking the lead at different times, the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals both dropped games in Week 12, allowing the Seattle Seahawks to jump back on top.

Now the two will play each other in a huge battle for playoff seeding. Let's turn to the experts for their thoughts on Rams-Cardinals Week 13.
