Rams vs. Cardinals score update: Sam Bradford engineers Lance Kendricks touchdown as halftime looms

Brian Bahr

The St. Louis Rams' offense finally gets off the turf as Sam Bradford and Lance Kendricks connect for a touchdown pass.

Sam Bradford's ugly first half was punctuated by a 37-yard touchdown pass to tight end Lance Kendricks, tying the score at 14-14, forcing us all to abruptly update our "The Rams Should Give Up on Sam Bradford" stories for tomorrow, and pushing the Arizona Cardinals onto the defensive as the second quarter came to an end.

Bradford, who threw an interception into the end zone a drive earlier, found Kendricks up the middle with a great-looking line-drive pass, and Kendricks rumbled into the end zone for the Rams' first offensive touchdown. (Janoris Jenkins gave them their first score, running back an interception for a touchdown.)

The touchdown, Kendricks's second of the season, gives Sam Bradford a line at the half of 6-for-12 for 146 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Bradford's been inaccurate and less-than-composed behind a shaky offensive line, but he's shown a good rapport with Chris Givens and found Kendricks and the obviously limping Danny Amendola for big plays when he's needed to. Steven Jackson has seen a lot of playing time as well, running the ball 10 times for 41 yards.
