Goff throws for 424 yards, Rams roll past Cardinals 34-7

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said his spot in the NFL was helped by the success of Rams coach Sean Mc Vay

The Cardinals have the worst pass defense in the league, and it showed. The veteran finished with 424 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Safety Marqui Christian improved his record to 6-0 against his former team. "It's always a collaboration of the unit, but I was really pleased with his ability to command and control the game".

Higbee entered the game with the second-highest receiving grade of any Rams offensive player, coincidentally behind Everett. Todd Gurley II had himself a day as well.

Arizona has certainly turned out to be more competitive than originally expected this season, but also Los Angeles is on the verge of hitting desperation mode, meaning they could finally come out firing in this one. Minnesota (8-4) now sits only one game ahead of the Rams, with home games ahead against the Detroit Lions (3-8-1), Green Bay Packers (9-3) and Chicago Bears (6-6) and a December 15 game at the Chargers (4-8). "If some teams lose and we keep winning, some things can happen".

"Kyler's a victor, he's won at every single level", Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald said after the game. "We have to take that one on the chin and be very critical on the film". You could see how capable he is as a run blocker, and then when he gets his opportunities, he shows up in the passing game.


"The product, in all three phases, was not acceptable yesterday", coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday at his weekly news conference.

"He does such an incredible job for us in every aspect of the game, what he's done with blocking, route-running and being able to get down the field and make plays with his feet", Kupp said. "I know offensively, we just couldn't get a flow of the game".

David Johnson was a big part of the Cardinals' offense during the first half of the season, emerging as a talented pass catcher to go with his usual running production.

But after missing a few weeks with an ankle injury, he's almost disappeared from Arizona's offense.

The 2016 All-Pro had four carries for 15 yards and two catches for 9 yards on Sunday. "Our defense needs to play better than last time".
