The Cardinals mounted a small come back to keep it close at the half

The beginning of the game was exactly what we have not seen from Blaine Gabbert and the Arizona Cardinals

It was a bit of a disaster and by the end of the first quarter the Cardinals had more interceptions than first downs.

Yet, Bruce Arians calmed everyone down by going to... the running game and really making it the priority of the offense.

It worked as the Cardinals had two methodical drives capped by touchdowns from Elijhaa Penny (shouts to AndyStandsUp) and a bullet pass from Gabbert to Larry Fitzgerald.

The Rams answered on the final drive of the first half with another Greg Zuerlein field goal, and the Rams took a 19-13 lead into the half.
