St. Louis takes a 7-3 lead into the second quarter at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis after sharp passing from quarterback Sam Bradford.
Bradford was 3-for-4 on the opening drive, hitting wide receiver Danny Amendola on a 44-yard pass on the game's second play. Amendola adjusted well to the underthrown pass, coming back for it, making the catch with just his left arm and drawing pass interference from Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson in the process.
Two snaps later, he hit WR Lance Kendricks on a seven-yard touchdown pass. Bradford also rushed for four yards on the drive.
Arizona's Kevin Kolb responded with a well-executed drive that stalled in the red zone. Kolb was 3-for-4 on third downs on the drive before Jay Feely hit a 35-yard field goal to pull the score to 7-3.
The Rams punted on their second drive, and the Cardinals have the ball just short of midfield starting the second quarter.
