Cardinals crush Rams, stay in first
December 13, 2015
On Sunday, Dec. 6, the Cardinals smashed the St. Louis Rams 27-3. The Cardinals have improved to 10-2, and remain first in NFC West. The Rams have fallen to 4-8 and are tied for third place in NFC West with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cardinals will play again on Thursday, Dec. 10, against the Vikings, who are currently 8-4. Minnesota is second in NFC North.
The Rams play their next game against the Lions on Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Detroit Lions. Detroit is 4-8 and is in fourth place in NFC North.
Carson threw for 356 yards that game, completing 26 out of 40 passes. He had two touchdowns on the night.
Rookie David Johnson led the team in rushing against the Rams. He carried the ball 22 times for 99 yards. His longest run was 23 yards.
John Brown was Arizona’s main receiver that game. Brown caught six passes for 113 yards. His longest reception was a 68-yard catch.
Nick Foles threw for just 146 yards against Arizona. He completed 15 out of 35 passes and had one interception on the night.
Rookie Todd Gurley led the rushing attack, but that’s not saying much. He was held down to 41 yards on nine carries that game. His longest run was 34 yards.
Kenny Britt led the Rams in receiving against Arizona. Britt caught just two passes for a total of 41 yards. His longest reception was a 30-yard catch.
The Rams looked awful in this matchup. I was expecting a lot more, especially from players like Britt, Gurley and Tavon Austin. They started out the season hot, but since then they’ve slumped down. Head Coach Jeff Fisher may be on the hot seat.
