Cardinals Go Into St. Louis To Kill The Rams 34-13

Shane HouseAnalyst INovember 3, 2008

What a game. After St. Louis scoring the first touchdown of the game, Arizona just took over as they were all over the Rams in a 34-13 rout.

Kurt Warner had an amazing game, scoring two touchdowns while throwing for over 300 yards once again. His two strikes went to Anquan Boldin and Jerheme Urban. 

Anquan Boldin's touchdown came on a 7-yard throw in the red zone while Jerheme Urban's touchdown came on a fluke when Kurt Warner threw the ball short, but cornerback Jonathan Wade bobbled the ball right into Urban's hands to give him the 56-yard score.

The game also saw a breakout performance from Tim Hightower, who was replacing Edgerrin James who was benched for bad play in the previous game against Carolina.

In his first start, he rushed for over 100-yards, which was highlighted with a 39-yard touchdown. Hightower showed poise and when called upon, did a great job and because of this consistent running game, Ken Whisenhunt finally had a balanced attack with the plays being split 34-33 passing to rushing.

Next week has the Arizona Cardinals at home facing the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers are coming off a bye week after a game where both starting quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan and starting tight end Vernon Davis were pulled by new coach Mike Singletary.

It will be interesting to see what the 49ers will bring next Sunday because of Singletary. I have a feeling that the team will rather bring a disciplined team that will be good with the ball, or once again the team will fall apart.

Regardless, I still believe whichever team comes out will still loose to the Cardinals. The 49ers don't have enough skill at this time to beat the Cardinals nor the confidence and unless the Cardinals loose focus and fall apart, we will see the Cardinals win easily against the 49ers.
