The Rams and Cardinals have reached halftime at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, with the Rams holding a 10-3 lead. St. Louis jumped ahead on the first possession of the game, as quarterback Sam Bradford engineered a five-play, 69-yard touchdown drive highlighted by a 44-yard completion to Danny Amendola. Tight end Lance Kendricks caught the touchdown pass. The Cardinals responded with a methodical 17-play drive, punctuated by a 35-yard Jay Feely field goal.
Both offenses were sloppy and disjointed in the second quarter, with the only scoring coming on a 53-yard Greg Zuerlein field goal. Bradford completed just one of seven pass attempts in the quarter, finishing the half 5/13 for 81 yards. Arizona signal-caller Kevin Kolb has not been much better, completing 14/27 for 133 and nearly throwing an interception for a touchdown on the half's final attempt. Kolb took a hit late in the half, and was being examined on the sideline as the half ended.
Both teams have struggled to run the ball tonight. Rams halfback Steven Jackson has five carries for 19 yards. Cardinals back Ryan Williams recorded 30 yards rushing on nine attempts.
Arizona will get the ball to start the second half.
