ST. Thon Maker Bucks Jersey . LOUIS - The Arizona Cardinals know all too well the feeling of seeing their quarterback leaving the field in pain.It happened the last time the Cardinals (11-3) faced the St. Louis Rams, then again in the rematch Thursday night.The only silver lining: They found a way to win both times and are on the verge of clinching a playoff berth after slugging out a 12-6 win behind Chandler Catanzaros four field goals.Im glad we dont have to play the Rams anymore. Both times we played them, they banged our quarterbacks up, receiver Larry Fitzgerald said after being limited to 30 yards and seven catches. Its unfortunate.Drew Stanton hopped off the field after getting sacked by Aaron Donald in the third quarter, and coach Bruce Arians wasnt sure about the extent of the injury to his right knee. Stanton, who became the starter after Carson Palmer suffered a season-ending injury in the last game against the Rams last month, was expected to get an MRI on Friday.Well take it very slowly with him and see how it goes. Arians said.Stantons injury forced Ryan Lindley into his first playing time since 2012. He completed his first pass to set up a 51-yard field goal by Catanzaro, then had a 14-yard pass to John Brown on third-and-7 to spark a drive that led to Catanzaros 44-yarder and a 12-3 lead early in the fourth quarter.Lindley started four games for Arizona as a rookie in 2012 and was cut by the Cardinals in training camp this year. He was signed off San Diegos practice squad after Palmer got hurt, but has hardly practiced with the teams top players.For him to come in in this type of situation, a hostile environment with all the implications going into this game, he did an amazing job, Fitzgerald said.Some things to know from the Cardinals win over the Rams (6-8) that officially eliminated St. Louis from the playoff race:SHUTOUT STREAK SNAPPED: The Rams hadnt allowed a point in nine straight quarters before Arizonas Larry Foote recovered Tre Masons fumble at the St. Louis 27, leading to a second-quarter field goal. The back-to-back shutouts against Washington and Oakland had been the franchises first since 1945.The difference in this ballgame was the ability to get the ball in the end zone. I thought our defence played well enough for us to win, coach Jeff Fisher said. But in situations like this when your offence is struggling against a good defence, somebodys got to make a play.The Rams still havent given up a touchdown since the fourth quarter of a Nov. 23 loss at San Diego.ARIANS UNPLUGGED: In his postgame news conference, Arians made it known that he was none too happy about the last-place Rams being favoured against his first-place Cardinals.I love it when nobody says youre going to have a chance to win. Theres an 11-3 team and a team thats always 8-8, Arians said. You figure it out.Arians stuck it to the Rams offensive line while praising his D-line: I thought that our defensive line whipped their offensive line pretty solid. When they were making tackles behind the line of scrimmage, there was usually an offensive lineman holding onto their legs but somehow those flags never got called. But we were tackling them for losses, so it didnt matter.And about that Rams defence?Everybody talking all that stuff about how great their defence is, they saw a good defence tonight. It was in red and white.LARRY LEGEND: With his fourth catch of the game, coming in the second quarter, Fitzgerald became the youngest player in NFL history to reach 900 career receptions. Fitzgerald, 31, is more than a full year younger than Andre Johnson was when he reached the milestone.Im glad to finally get it behind me so I can just get on and worry about the things that really matter, Fitzgerald said. Its nice to be able to accomplish that in 11 years.KICKIN IT: All of the games points came from kickers coming off shaky performances.Catanzaro, an undrafted rookie out of Clemson, missed two of his five field-goal attempts against Kansas City — including a 34-yarder with 69 seconds left that failed to extend a three-point lead.There was no need to talk to him all week. Hes a talented, talented young fella. He just had a bad day at the office last week, Arians said.St. Louis Greg Zuerlein had missed an extra point and two short field goals in the first half last week against Washington. He rebounded with makes from 24 and 19 yards.SEATTLE SHOWDOWN: No matter whos at quarterback, Arizona could have a chance to wrap up the division title next week against Seattle and finish a perfect 8-0 at home.Thats a special game, to win a T-shirt, that hat: NFC West champs, said linebacker Larry Foote, who had a sack and a fumble recovery. Were going to play a great team in our place.Lindley said he has a leg up on preparation because he studied the Seahawks when he was still with the Chargers, then again when the Cardinals faced the defending Super Bowl champs in November. Oscar Robertson Bucks Jersey . Toronto has lost six of its last eight games but is coming off Thursdays 7-3 victory at Kansas City. Juan Francisco and Colby Rasmus both went deep for the Blue Jays, who are second in the American League with 34 home runs on the season. Matthew Dellavedova Bucks Jersey .J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the ninth inning, Hanley Ramirez hit a tape-measure, three-run homer in the first against Cliff Lee and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Saturday night.6. If baseball had never been invented, would pine tar exist? As a wood preservative, you say? And to make medicinal soap to treat skin ailments, Im told. The soap you might use if you smear pine tar all over your neck?7. If the New York Islanders give their 2015 first-round draft pick to the Buffalo Sabres as part of the payment for Thomas Vanek, who was later traded to Montreal, and if the Sabres wind up with Conor McDavid or Jack Eichel thanks to the Islanders, might the original Vanek trade from Buffalo to the Islanders have been the worst trade in modern NHL times?8. Jose Bautista tried unsuccessfully to steal third base when the Blue Jays were trailing the Red Sox 5-0. Why?9. I love it loud at rock shows and movie theatres. Why dont I love it loud at an NBA game? Because I might like to talk to the person next to me?10. Until somebody proves me wrong, Im pronouncing the controversial site of the 2022 soccer World Cup "Kotter", because thats how all of my trusted information sources tell me to pronounce "Qatar". I always get it right by remembering Gabe Kaplan and a young John Travolta.11. If Ichiro Suzuki is always referred to as "Ichiro", why do we call Yu Darvish "Darvish" and not "Yu"?12. Has Kyle Lowry ever heard of Bob Baun?13. Did you know that Justin Morneau is batting .351 for the Colorado Rockies? That stat came right out of thin air.14. Will the Coolumbus Blue Jackets ever understand how they held Sidney Crosby without a goal and why they lost to Pittsburgh?15. John Henson Jersey. Could we agree that the best solution to the problem of baseball games that last too long is Mark Buehrle?16. If any of 29 NHL teams blew a 3-0 series lead, there would be major repercussions. The 30th team is San Jose. Dont you agree that "major repercussions" will fall short of sufficiently explaining the fallout if the Sharks lose to the Los Angeles Kings?17. Dont you love reading box scores? Last week, I saw that Brett Gardner of the Yankees went 0 for 3 and scored four runs.18. Because you cant watch all eight first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, theres always one that you havent seen and know little about, and so, can you tell me if anything interesting has happened between the Rangers and the Flyers?19. When Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce asked for more noise from the fans at the Barclays Center, they didnt mean booing, did they?20. With Ron Francis newly-installed as the Carolina Hurricanes general manager, and as long as Kirk Muller is the Hurricanes head coach, the highest-scoring player among current GMs and among head coaches are with the same team. Has this ever happened before? I guess not, but if you have time to do research that proves otherwise, be my guest, send me the information and I will Pass It On."Question" — Moody Blues Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
