Stafford and the Rams were dominant from the beginning. Their first of four touchdowns in the game came on their second drive, a 4-yard scoring pass from Stafford to Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham had almost as many passing yards (40) as he receiving yards (54) as he completed the longest pass of the night, to Cam Akers on a trick play.

The Cardinals struggled across the board. They didn’t get their first first down until halfway through the second quarter. On the drive before that, Kyler Murray threw a pick-six to David Long, who returned it 3 yards for the touchdown. Murray was intercepted twice as he finished 19 for 34 for 137 yards.
