Here is a little recap of the game.
The Saint Louis Rams lost the game because of some costly mistakes.
Matt Leinart knew exactly what to do with those miscues with his impressive long drives.
Leinart's numbers, 15-for-24 for 186 yards and one touchdown, were not nearly as impressive as his 405-yard passing effort last week - the most yards by a rookie in NFL history,but was masterful in managing the game for the cardinals.

Marcel Shipp scored 3 cheap touchdowns, Edgerrin James had 115 yards rushing, breaking the 100 yards mark for the first time this season and Leinart won for the second time in his 7 NFL starts, capitalizing on the Rams' season-high 126 yards in penalties in the Arizona Cardinals' 34-20 victory on Sunday.
Two of the 10 calls against the Rams led to scores by the Cardinals on the next play. Larry Fitzgerald caught an 11-yard touchdown pass one play after a 34-yard pass interference and Shipp scored on a 6-yard run one play after yet another interference penalty. A third crucial penalty, a defensive holding call, helped the Cardinals put the game away. Shipp, who entered the game with only 6 yards on three carries on the season, scored his third touchdown on a 9-yard run four plays later for a 31-13 lead.

Marc Bulger threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns, but also had three interceptions to add to woes that contributed to a sixth loss in 7 games for the Rams.
Bulger has three touchdown passes and six interceptions the last four games. 1 Td for every two INT’s.
Rams' Torry Holt had 7 catches for 115 yards and a 15-yard touchdown pass, his first score in six games since a three-TD, 154-yard effort against the Seahawks back in October, but he dropped a sure 83-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter after splitting two defenders.
Steven Jackson had a great day, rushing for 96 yards on 21 carries and adding 69 receiving yards on 9 receptions with no touchdowns.
The margin could have been larger except two Arizona drives stalled at the 1 and 5, forcing 2 Neil Rackers' chip-shot field goals.

Wow, just when I though Edge's value couldn't get any lower, now he loses goal-line carries too. I read somewhere that they asked him if he wanted to go in for the goal-lines at some point, but he said no, give them to Shipp because they've been so supportive of him or some crap. Anybody know if he's lost them for good?
