ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jeff Fisher began rebuilding the St. Louis Rams' confidence when he was hired in mid-January. Now they've got the results to back it up.
Heading into a three-day break, the Rams (3-2) have more to savor than just knocking off previously unbeaten Arizona. They've already topped their win total from the dismal 2011 season with 11 games to go, and they're 3-0 at home for the first time since 2003.
The key to the 17-3 victory over the Cardinals was a fast-improving defense that sacked Kevin Kolb nine times, their best total in 14 years, with very little blitzing. End Robert Quinn, one of three first-round picks on the line, had a career day with three sacks.
Sam Bradford had one of the worst days of his career, completing only 7 of 21 passes for 141 yards. But he emerged from an 0-for-12 funk including an end zone interception with a 51-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chris Givens early in the fourth quarter to put St. Louis up by 14 points.
