Cardinals Vs. Rams Score Update: All Tied Up In Arizona; Patrick Peterson Getting His Tiger On

The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams starting their battle for last place in the NFC West showing why they are battling for last place in the NFC West. The Rams went three and out on their first drive while the Cardinals started with great field position but had to settle for a field after John Skelton missed on two pass plays from the Rams nine yard line.

On their second drive, however, the Rams were able to take advantage of a porous Arizona defense and move 55 yards down the field to set up a game tying field goal. Bradford was able to find receivers for short routes and Steven Jackson ran the ball effectively. 

The only bright spot for the Cardinals on the drive came on the final third down when rookie Sam Acho recorded his third sack of the season. Acho bull rushed the inside lineman and collapsed the pocket. We normally think of Acho as a speed rusher from the edge so that was fun to see.

The first quarter ended with rookie Patrick Peterson picking off a flea-flicker attempt from Bradford. Peterson recovered quickly and won the jump ball in the air channeling a big play by LSU safety Eric Reid in the Tigers win over Alabama.

The score is tied 3-3 going into the second quarter. The Cardinals have the ball at their own 14 yard line. Arizona has 39 total yards of offense compared to 93 for the Rams.
