The St. Louis Rams tightened up the defense in the second quarter and hold a 10-3 led against the Arizona Cardinals at halftime on Sunday. The Rams took an early lead on an impressive punt return touchdown from Nick Miller, and have been excellent in stifling Arizona's passing game.
The lead was actually extended essentially as time expired, with Josh Brown kicking a 35-yard field goal with less than ten seconds left to put St. Louis up 10-3. That play was set up by an impressive catch from wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who continues to meld with quarterback Sam Bradford. Here's video of that catch:
A couple of bad plays forced the Rams to settle for a field goal instead of a touchdown, but the team is still up a score as the second half begins at the Edward Jones Dome.
