The St. Louis Rams broke a five-game winless streak on Sunday with a solid 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams were strong on offense as well as on defense, with rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins returning two interceptions for touchdowns in the game.
The Rams intercepted quarterback Ryan Lindley four times as Steven Jackson rushed for 139 yards on 24 carries, executing a strong game plan by coach Jeff Fisher. Douglas M of Turf Show Times praises the work of the coaching staff in a big win on the road:
Jeff Fisher and his staff lined out a perfect game plan. They hit Arizona hard on the ground, and selected their passing opportunities with care. Brian Schottenheimer finally found the rushing game he promised before the season started, and half time adjustments were evident and well executed. Stellar across the board for a coaching staff that had been out coached several times this year. Take a bow Mr. Fisher. The team today is the one that showed fans both improvement and future possibilities.
The Rams (4-6-1) had opened the season 3-2 in the first season under Fisher before losing four out of five games sandwiching a tie in San Francisco. St. Louis will face the 49ers once again on Sunday, with kickoff set for 12 p.m. CT.
