The St. Louis Rams bounced back from an early 6-0 deficit to come back and beat the Arizona Cardinals 19-6, giving the Cards their seventh loss in a row. The Rams improved to 6-6 after going 1-15 a year ago, and won consecutive road games for the first time since Nov. 18, 2007.
The Rams remained in a first place tie with Seattle in the NFC West. Their six wins equal their total combined for the previous three seasons.
Leading the way for the Rams was Steven Jackson who rushed for 102 yards, including 27 on the game’s lone TD. Rams kicker Josh Brown tied his career best with four field goals and could have had another one, but Steve Spagnuolo elected against it.
“It’s obviously a big change, from the last two years, being on the field a number of times,” said Brown. “I was kind of begging for that fifth one, quite honestly. The coaches didn’t want to do that.”
