St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles could have been considered a liability heading into a Week 4 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals but that certainly wasn't the case on Sunday.
Foles accumulated a QB Rating of 126.9 and tossed three touchdowns on the afternoon. Foles' performance wasn't flashy but it certainly got the job done.
We talked about how RB Todd Gurley was somewhat of an unknown commodity coming into this week but he's certainly known now.
Gurley shredded the Cardinals defense in the second half, racking up 146 yards on the ground while salting the game away for the Rams offense.
Winning the turnover battle was something that propelled Arizona to its 3-0 start but the team committed three turnovers on Sunday and it ended up being the difference.
QB Carson Palmer tossed an interception in endzone while two additional fumbles slowed down the Cardinals. Rookie RB David Johnson fumbled on the opening kickoff, which was indicative of ow the afternoon would go for the Cardinals.
We said before Sunday's matchup against a highly regarded Rams defensive line that we'll find out if the Cardinals offensive line is legit. After allowing four sacks, the jury is still out on that.
DE Chris Long and company did their usual of wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks and Palmer looked out of sync all day against the blitz.
11, 3, 0.5
Despite the loss, there were some positives for Arizona, including the performance of DE Calais Campbell who totaled 11 tackles, three tackles for a loss and a half sack.
Campbell generally always shows up in big games and while things didn't go the Cardinals way, he certainly made his presence felt on Sunday.
