The Rams’ defense had played well for much of the first half, limiting the Cardinals to a mere 7 points just before halftime. But the Cardinals were able to move the ball downfield efficiently and make it a one score game heading into half. A positive note on the turnover front, safety Taylor Rapp and inside linebacker Cory Littleton both recovered a pair of loose balls, putting the Rams’ offense back on the field.
The Rams’ offense has done enough, despite rushing for only 36 yards in the first half.
Greg Zuerlein missed an opportunity to put the Rams up 20-10 late in the second quarter.
