Beanie Wells carries Cardinals past Rams

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.
