Rams Beat Cardinals 32-16

The first quarter was a beautiful thing to watch as the Rams opened up a 16-0 lead.  The energy was high, the passing patterns were crisp, and the timing routes were… well, they were well timed.  Starting the 2nd quarter the Rams settled into more of a grind it out mode.  The Cardinals scored the next 2 TDs (a goal line rush by RB Penny and a 15 yard TD strike to WR Fitzgerald).  The Rams retained their poise as they drove the field and tacked on a 20 yard Zuerlein FG.

The Rams lead was never challenged in the second half.  They scored the only touchdown in the 3rd quarter on a 11 yard Goff pass to Sammy Watkins.  Both Rams RB Gurley and Cardinals WR Fitzgerald had stellar games.  Not sure it’s correct to say they cancelled each other out, but I would say the Rams defensive line was the difference maker.  The D-Line pressured Cardinals QB Gabbert throughout the game.  By the end of the day they had racked up six big fat nasty sacks.  Final score Rams 32-Cardinals 16.

Next week’s game will be the Rams biggest game of the 2017 regular season.  In addition to needing a big offensive effort, the Rams defensive secondary, injuries and all, have got to have a phenomenal game if they plan on beating the top team in the NFC (Eagles).

PS The Rams are 9-3 and have secured a winning season for the first time since 2003.  GO RAMS!!!!
