The Arizona Cardinals suffered their first loss of the season against the St. Louis Rams and while there were few positives to take away, kicker Chandler Catanzaro was certainly one.
Catanzaro connected on all five of his field goal attempts and his lone extra point try. Catanzaro racked up 16 points, a career high for the second-year kicker.
While QB Carson Palmer and the offense sputtered after getting into scoring position, Catanzaro picked up the slack and nearly helped lead Arizona to a comeback win.
Late in the fourth quarter, the Cardinals offense was driving and was just yards away from from a potential game-winning field goal try. Palmer and company, however, failed on fourth down and the ball went back to St. Louis who then put the game away on the legs of RB Todd Gurley.
Hopefully for the Cardinals, Catanzaro won't be on the field quite as much in the coming weeks as Arizona will need to convert more touchdowns to continue its winning ways.
