The Super Bowl
After pulling off an incredible comeback victory the previous week, the Arizona Cardinals were unable to keep the momentum going and were defeated by the Los Angeles Rams, the reigning Super Bowl winners, 20-12 on Sunday afternoon. The Cardinals were not successful in reaching the end zone, and kicker Matt Prater kicked field goals with a perfect score of 4 for 4.
Drops were a significant factor for both teams. In the second drive of the game, Rams Allen Robinson missed what appeared to be an unassailable opportunity for a touchdown. As a result, the Rams were only able to finish the drive with a field goal, giving them an early 3-0 lead. In the meantime, Murray and the Cardinals offense struggled to get going early in the game. Of the Cardinals’ first four drives, three of them ended in a three-and-out.
Once again, the Rams’ Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp connection was a dynamic and entertaining one to behold. It was Kupp who scored the opening touchdown of the game after receiving the ball from Stafford and racing 20 yards to the end zone in a touchdown-scoring run. The Rams jumped up to an early lead of 10-0. After that, the Rams’ defensive unit was successful in breaking through the Cardinals’ offensive line. In the first half, Murray took two sacks, with one of them resulting in a loss of 15 yards.
Stafford made the decision to go up the middle to Kendall Blanton for 28 yards in order to conclude the first quarter and set the Rams up for success. On the following play, Stafford threw a tremendous completion downfield to Ben Skowronek, who was wide open, for a gain of 26 yards. The Rams were successful in completing the drive by kicking a field goal, which increased their advantage to 13-0.
