The Rams needed 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, getting them with a touchdown to a Jared Cook touchdown followed by a two-point conversion and two Greg Zuerlein field goals. The Cardinals played pretty well for most of the game and even Carson Palmer tossed a pair of touchdowns en route to 327 yards.
Sam Bradford was excellent in his own right, completing 27 of 38 passes for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns as well.
Despite being on the winning side of this deal, Joe Mazzi of Turf Show Times isn't very happy with what he saw out of the Rams on Sunday:
These aren't Steve Spagnuolo's Rams anymore - expectations and talent levels are much higher - but you wouldn't know it by much of yesterday's product on the field. Lackluster play calling, infuriating penalties and daunting mistakes on defense are still a motif in Earth City.
Over at Revenge Of The Birds, Robert Norman wasn't feeling the love for the offensive line, especially Levi Brown:
Robert Quinn had 3.0 sacks, 2 forced fumbles. His sacks matched a career high, which he set last year against the Cardinals porous offensive line. Much of the blame should be placed on Levi Brown, but generally the entire team was pretty inconsistent. Hopefully, this isn't going to be the norm for the rest of the season because the Rams aren't the only NFC West team with a strong pass rush.
