Los Angeles Rams vs Arizona Cardinals 12/01/2019
Los Angeles Rams
Jared Goff couldn’t find his mojo, settling for 26/37 with 212 air yards. He wasn’t able to connect any thrown TDs. Todd Gurley II led the efforts on the ground, carrying the ball 6 times across 22 yards. Robert Woods took care of the catches, receiving 6 of them for 97 yards.
From the stats of the player leaders alone, it’s obvious that the Los Angeles Rams were trapped in the field. They rushed the ball for an alarming 9 times out of 48 plays. The Rams were forced to rely heavily on throws, which was not really their go-to offensive option. As a result, they were stuck with a single-digit score while their opponent racked up points.
The Rams were mediocre in yardage gained. They only chalked up 221 yards as compared to their opponent’s 480. The huge discrepancy in yards simply gave the impression that the enemy was in total control of the field. The Rams need to look back and reassess their tactics. They need to come up with solutions whenever they face the big guns of the NFL.

The Cardinals strove against the San Francisco 49ers. It was brave of them to stand up to the NFL’s top team, and they made a decent showing with a 26-36 endgame score. Kyler Murray rose to the occasion, going for 24/33 with 150 air yards. He tossed in 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. The RB rushed 8 times, with 67 yards’ worth of territory covered. He even rushed for a TD. Christian Kirk received the ball 6 times to claim the top receiver’s spot. He helped usher in 41 yards.
The Cardinals racked up an unexpected amount of points, surprising most bettors. The general betting public thought they were going to be buried in an avalanche of points, but they fought long and hard. The Cardinals ran 25 times out of 65 plays, generating a total of 266 yards. They were way behind in yardage gained, with the 49ers garnering 442 yards total. Despite this skewed territory, the Cardinals made use of whatever space they had to convert yards into points.
The only thing missing in the Cardinals’ valiant fight was their defensive line. They weren’t able to stop the 49ers from converting 76% of their throw attempts. They also had no answers to 19 rush attempts. Their defense stalled the rushes, but in the end, they were outscored by the top-tier team.
