The St. Louis Rams extended their lead over the Arizona Cardinals on a big play in the fourth quarter.
The Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams have been exchanging hard hits for more than three quarters, locked in a rough and tumble defensive battle. The Rams took a 10-3 lead into the fourth quarter, but extended that with one big play from quarterback Sam Bradford and speedy wide receiver Chris Givens.
Givens went streaking down the left side of the field on third-and-11. Bradford wound up and chucked a perfectly placed ball down the field to the rookie receiver for the touchdown.
Bradford and Givens have struggled to connect throughout the game. The two connected on a big play last week, but were unable to get the touchdown. This time, it counted for six points, the first touchdown of Givens' NFL career, a 51-yard pass that put the Rams on top 17-3 early in the fourth quarter.
The Cardinals entered the game with a 4-0 record, and could be facing their first loss of the season.
