After a 3-3 first quarter, the Arizona Cardinals failed to muster any more offense, but kept the St. Louis Rams out of the end zone. The Rams did get two more scores from the leg of Josh Brown. He hit both field goal attempts he had in the second quarter to give the Rams a 9-3 halftime.
But don't think that this game is a defensive struggle, a la the Alabama/LSU game from Saturday night. It is mostly two struggling teams playing one another.
The Cardinals only had the ball for two drives. The first was a three-and-out and the other ended on a sack around midfield. For the half, John Skelton has done nothing to give fans the QB controversy they were hoping. He is 6/11 for 65 yards. 45 of those yards have been to Andre Roberts, who has three catches.
Beanie Wells has looked hampered by his knee injury. He has two yards rushing on seven carries.
For the Rams, Sam Bradford is 11/15 for 135 yards and a pick. Steven Jackson has been punishing the Cardinals on the ground. He has carried the ball 14 times for 53 yards.
Someone is going to have to find the end zone at some point. Whoever does will likely be the team that wins the game. Stay tuned.
