At Los Angeles
85 degrees, clear skies
• Arizona did not appear at all prepared to take on the Rams defense. Arizona did not even cross into Rams’ territory until less than a minute remained in the game. This is a credit to the Rams’ game planning and a deduction from Arizona’s game planning, play calling, and in-game adjustments.
• Arizona found little production from Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson. The greatest share of pass targets went to their tight-end Ricky Seals-Jones, which seems like an odd stat given the ability of Fitzgerald and Johnson. At no point did the Arizona offense display any type of rhythm of cohesiveness, and for this their play calling, personnel, and in-game adjustments were severely docked.
• As poorly as the offense played, the Arizona defense actually looked quite good at times. They were effective in getting pass pressure to Jared Goff and looked prepared against the run. However, with no support from their offense there was only so much they could do to hold back the tide.
