Cardinals vs. Rams score update: Beanie Wells scores second touchdown, harrasses Rams yet again

Christian Petersen

The Arizona Cardinals got their second touchdown in as many quarters from injured running back Beanie Wells to extend their lead over the St. Louis Rams to 14-7.

The Arizona Cardinals' Beanie Wells had his biggest game ever against the St. Louis Rams last season, scoring one touchdown and chewing up 228 yards on the ground almost exactly a year ago. Now, in his first game back from a bad turf toe injury, Wells has gotten off to a different kind of hot start against those same Rams: He's got 10 carries for 32 yards and two touchdowns, running a vital support role in rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley's first career start.

So far the Cardinals' offense has stayed mostly grounded but remarkably effective: Lindley is 10-for-13 for 121 yards in addition to Wells's play on the ground. The only misstep led directly to the Rams' only touchdown--a pick-six interception on a great play from Rams rookie Janoris Jenkins.

Beanie Wells might not be the way the Cardinals are moving downfield this afternoon, but when they've needed a touchdown he's gotten the ball both times.
