Rams Vs. Cardinals Final: Patrick Peterson Returns Punt For Touchdown, Arizona Stuns In Overtime

Patrick Peterson returned his third punt of the season for a touchdown, and this 99-yard shot came in overtime as the Arizona Cardinals stunned the St. Louis Rams by a score of 19-13. The Rams had neutralized Peterson all game in the punt game, but he surprised them by taking the ball out deep within Cardinals territory and confounded them by dodging nearly every Ram on the field on his way to the Cardinals’ overtime win.

For the Rams the loss is another ugly reminder of their offense’s inability to put the ball into the end zone. Despite 255 yards from Sam Bradford and 130 more from Steven Jackson the Rams were unable to score a single touchdown, relying on three field goals from Josh Brown and two consecutive safeties on Cardinals backup John Skelton to get on the board.

After a start that gave cause for optimism it looks like Rams fans are in for another week of speculation about Steve Spagnuolo’s future, courtesy the incredible Patrick Peterson and their own strange inadequacies.
