ST. LOUIS (AP) - Patrick Peterson tied the NFL record with his
fourth punt return for a touchdown this season, Beanie Wells set a
franchise mark with 228 yards rushing, and the Arizona Cardinals
won their seventh in a row in St. Louis with a 23-20 victory Sunday
over the Rams.
Wells averaged 8.4 yards per carry on a career day that included
gains of 71 and 53 yards. The latter set up Jay Feely's go-ahead
22-yard field goal with 4:12 remaining. Rookie Sam Acho also had a
career day on defense with two sacks and a fumble recovery for
Arizona (4-7), which did enough to overcome another awful outing by
John Skelton, who threw two interceptions.
Brandon Lloyd's 16-yard TD catch from Sam Bradford tied it at 20
with 7:46 to go. Nick Miller had an 88-yard punt return in the
first quarter for the Rams (2-9) only three days after he re-signed
with the team.
