Rams Win Season Opener

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.
