The St. Louis Rams ended their seven-game road losing streak last week in Denver. On Sunday, the Rams snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Arizona Cardinals with a 19-6 victory on the road.

The Rams improved to 6-6 on the season, won consecutive road games for the first time since November of 2007 and remain tied with the Seahawks for the top spot in the NFC West standings.

Running back Steven Jackson rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries. It was the fourth time Jackson has surpassed the 100-yard mark this season, the 27th of his career, and the touchdown was Jackson’s fourth of the year and 45th of his career.

He now has 985 rushing yards on 260 carries this season.

Rams rookie quarterback Sam Bradford completed 18 of 29 passes for 187 yards, with one interception, and a quarterback rating of 66.3. Wide receiver Brandon Gibson caught six passes for 54 yards.

St. Louis kicker Josh Brown was busy. He made four field goals (28, 52, 20 and 43 yards), which was his seventh career game with four field goals.

The Rams defense throttled three Cardinals quarterbacks — Derek Anderson, Max Hall and John Skelton — by sacking them four times (), intercepting two passes, limiting them to just one of 11 third-down conversions and keeping them out of the red zone.

Safety Craig Dahl recorded the first interception of his career and the third sack of his career. Defensive tackle Fred Robbins had two sacks. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher grabbed his third interception of the year.
