After a shaky game in Philadelphia, Palmer jumped right back up, as he completed 27 of 32 attempted passes for 269 yards and a TD. Palmer definitely showed some resemblance to Kurt Warner, and the team will be looking to him to keep this up down the stretch.
The star WR had a game of his own on Sunday. Bringing in 12 passes for 96 yards and a TD, Fitz was a nightmare for the Rams defense all day. He seems to be entering a Playoff-mindset, which the Cardinals will definitely need from the offensive leader.
Did anyone at the beginning of the season expect Dansby to produce the way he has? The 10-year veteran was all over the field, recording 8 tackles and a sack. However, it was his pick-6 off of QB Kellen Clemens early in the 3rd quarter that really capped off his performance.
4) The Run Defense
Coming into the game, the Rams were sporting the NFL's #1 run-game since Week 8, mostly shouldered by RB Zac Stacy. The Cardinals stout defense was able to hold Stacy to just 25 yards off 14 rushes, with a meager 1.8 yards per carry. In fact, the majority of the Rams rushing yards came from one play, when rookie WR Tavon Austin was able to churn out a 56 yard run.
5) John Abraham
Abraham's performance embodies the Cardinals defense as a whole. The 25 year old LBer picked up 5 tackles and recorded an incredible 3 sacks, totaling in 14 lost yards for the Rams. It's nice to have a dominant pass-rush for a change.
Special Mention: The Run Game - Both Rashard Mendenhall and Andre Ellington recorded TD's. It's nice to have options when it comes to your running backs.
