Cardinals vs. Rams: Player of the Game Poll

New, comments

Hopefully, this week four loss serves as a wakeup call to the Cardinals.

Even in the loss, some players did in fact turn up to play football.  Let's take a look at the Player of the Game nominees:

1) Chandler Catanzaro - Kicker

Despite what seemed like a million trips to the Red Zone, Carson Palmer and the offense failed to capitalize even once, and Catanzaro was called to task.  Luckily for the team, he was perfect on the day, nailing all five of his attempts and an extra point for a total of 16 points.  His longest FG was 42 yards.  While it was frustrating to see the team miss so many opportunities deep in Rams' territory, it was good to see Catanzaro pick up his team's slack.

2) Calais Campbell - Defensive End

Campbell was the most dominant player on defense for the Cardinals, finishing the game with 11 tackles (10 solo), half a sack, and three tackles for a loss.  Campbell is arguably the best player on the team's defense, and can always be counted on, week in and week out.

3) Patrick Peterson - Cornerback

Anytime your cornerback's name isn't mentioned a whole lot, it's usually a sign that he's doing things right.  Peterson was locked down on his target, WR Kenny Britt, all game, and it showed.  Britt had no receptions on just one target.

4) Chris Johnson - Running back

The signing of Johnson in the off-season came as a surprise to many, but it's quickly turning into another Steve Keim steal.  Johnson moved the chains all game, rushing 83 yards off 16 carries for an average of 5.2 yards per play.  He was dependable and had some nice long runs as well (21 yards serving as his longest carry of the day).
