The Arizona Cardinals couldn't seem to generate much on offense this Sunday to get over the hump against the St. Louis Rams. So why not turn to their special teams to take a victory away?
The Rams marched down the field in 40+ seconds, as Sam Bradford connected with Austin Pettis and got a Stephen Jackson rush to set up St. Louis in Arizona territory. Josh Brown lined up for the game winning field goal, and it looked like the Rams would notch their second straight field goal in a row.
Then Patrick Peterson ended things rather abruptly for the Cardinals in overtime. Peterson was actually pinned deep in his own territory, and it looked like he should have let this football go. Foolhardy perhaps, but it worked out for the best as Peterson went charging the other way, broke tackles and went all the way to the end zone for the win. Pretty big game for Peterson, who also had a huge interception. The Cardinals just have to be happy to get the win in whatever way they can.
