St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Sam Bradford threw for 299 yards, Jared Cook
had a monster debut and Greg Zuerlein's fourth field goal of the day lifted
the St. Louis Rams over the Arizona Cardinals, 27-24, in a Week 1 matchup
between division rivals.
Cook caught both of Bradford's touchdown passes, amassing 141 yards on seven
catches, with his last reception going for 25 yards and helping to set up
Zuerlein's go-ahead 48-yard field goal with 40 seconds left.
Bradford completed 27-of-38 throws and bounced back from a third quarter
interception to lead the Rams (1-0) to scores on three of their last four
series to cap a comeback victory.
Larry Fitzgerald enjoyed the presence of a capable quarterback, as the All-Pro
receiver hauled in a pair of Carson Palmer touchdown passes among his eight
receptions, totaling 80 yards.
Palmer, making his debut with the Cardinals (0-1), completed 26-of-40 throws
for 327 yards, but had an interception and a crucial fumble to spoil Bruce
Arian's first game at the coaching helm for Arizona.
