Arizona Cardinals: What Cards Can Take to Philadelphia from Rams Win

In the battle to claw themselves out of the NFC West basement, the Arizona Cardinals beat the St. Louis Rams in a nail-biting, if ugly, game, which went to overtime.

The final score—13-19—tells nothing about how odd this game really was.

When you see a score like 13, you think one touchdown and two field goals (or two touchdowns and a failed two point conversion), not three field goals and two safeties, yet that is nonetheless how the Rams reached 13.

The Cardinals win came thanks to a Patrick Peterson 99-yard punt return for a touchdown.

The game was the very definition of an ugly, arguably undeserved win, but it is a win nonetheless.

Win or lose, however, as the Cardinals prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles there is always a lot they can learn from the Rams game—this Cardinals team is definitely one in transition, one which needs to find its identity, and one which will need to make a great number of changes, both procedurally and in terms of personnel if they intend to succeed in the future.

So, what lessons should the Cardinals take with them to Philly? Join me as we take a look.
