The Los Angeles Rams remain unbeaten on the season after demolishing the Arizona Cardinals in week two 34-0.

There were plenty of good plays on the Rams’ side, though not many lowlights for the team as the Cardinals simply really didn’t do anything.

Let’s take a look at the highlight and lowlight of the game:

This play was pretty much doomed from the start. The Cardinals are bringing a blitz just outside of the redzone on third down. Though it looks like QB Jared Goff is going to eat the sack, he somehow manages to break free and keep his eyes downfield. The only problem was he forced a pass to Brandin Cooks that CB Patrick Peterson intercepted. Goff needs to just huck this one into the third row of the stadium.

You knew this was coming didn’t you?

The Cardinals made it a point of emphasis to sell out and stop the run against the Rams - a very sound tactic as RB Todd Gurley can take over a game in a hurry. The issue then becomes accounting for the dangerous receiving weapons the Rams employ.

Here, the Rams fake an outside zone run to the right, WR Brandin Cooks does a good job getting behind both the corner and safety on a corner-post, and QB Jared Goff lays it on him for a massive gain. The offensive line held up for majority of that pass though at the end a defender gets close-er to Goff making him take a step to maneuver the pocket and re-set his feet, with that likely being the reason Goff couldn’t throw it out further for a massive touchdown.
