Intra-state division leaders meet in St. Louis

The storyline
This is much like the 49ers-Chargers game; a meeting of two West teams from opposite conferences with major playoff implications.

Why you should watch
Could Matt Cassel play 10 days after an appendectomy? Can the Chiefs score a point without him? Sam Bradford and the young Rams have been solid at home, and the Chiefs are not as dangerous on the road. A Chargers win Thursday would put even more heat on K.C.
