All that said, Arizona had to hold on for a 38-33 win that got tight at the end. To do so will prove to be a chore, however, as the Rams are an equally hungry team trying to make a statement of their own as one of the top offenses in the game. Meanwhile, Los Angeles is 4-2 straight up and 3-3 against the spread this season.

A few minutes after the injury, the Jaguars announced that Fournette was cleared to return to the game - indicating that the injury wasn't as bad as it first appeared.

The Jaguars opted to take a cautious route with Fournette's recovery given his history of lower-body ailments, and he returned to the field back at 100 percent for the Jaguars' Week 1 victory with the Houston Texans, rushing for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Just as we all expected, the craziest game of Week 6 of the 2017 season is already Rams-Jaguars. Gurley is among the league leaders in yards from scrimmage this season and is coming off another strong performance after he rushed for 116 yards in last week's 27-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Palmer is immobile and the offensive line doesn't do a good job of protecting him when the game is on his shoulders.

Which is exactly how many they won in 2016.

The Cardinals acquired running back Adrian Peterson from the New Orleans Saints last week, and immediately Peterson posted a huge game in the desert for his new team.
