Cardinals' Week 13 defensive snap counts and observations

Cardinals' Week 13 defensive snap counts and observations

There isn't much positive the Arizona Cardinals can take from their 34-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Goff would finish the game throwing for 424 yards and two touchdowns.

Kenyan Drake had 13 carries for 31-yards to lead the Cardinals.

"That's really what gives you the positive mentality of, 'Hey, you know what, all right, this is what we should play like, ' " Whitworth said. Goff, Woods and Tyler Higbee all had their best games of the season, leading the Rams to victory in Week 13.

The Rams' impressive victory over the Cardinals improved their record to 7-5, and encouraged a team that six days earlier had suffered a 45-6 drubbing by the Baltimore Ravens.

The Cardinals selected Christian in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, but put him on waivers after three games to make room for an extra punter.

"Today, we proved we were a strong team".

Arizona had two weeks to prepare for Los Angeles as they were coming out of their bye week.

Arizona (3-8-1) had been building momentum through much of the season until the Rams came to town. "If some teams lose and we keep winning, some things can happen".

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, second in National Football League history in receptions and yards receiving, caught six passes for 56 yards.

"Kyler's a victor, he's won at every single level", Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald said after the game.

Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray was not exempt from the team's struggles Sunday, turning in perhaps his worst showing of the year. The interception was run back for a touchdown by Rams safety Taylor Rapp.

Murray showed up on the injury report late in the week with a hamstring issue and didn't appear to have his usual mobility. He ran for a 15-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter but was sacked three times in the first half after he was unable to avoid pressure he often sidesteps.

First-year Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Sunday's result "wasn't acceptable". "I think everybody understands that and we just have to go back to work and get better". "Our defense needs to play better than last time".
