The Cardinals, who are anywhere from 11½- to 12½-point favorites at Detroit Sunday, are not accustomed to laying a lot of points. Nor have they played the role of huge favorite well, either. The Cards have been favorites of 10 points or more just five times since 1989, and they have covered just once in that span, throttling the Rams as 14-point faves last season.

Should the Cardinals, as expected, go off as double-digit favorites, it will mark the only time in the last 20 years that they have laid 10 points or more on the road.
