Cardinals 48, Rams 19

December 31, 2007|From the Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals did not have a losing season. That's not headline news for most teams, but it's the first time the Cardinals have managed it in nine years.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 11 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns, and Arizona finished an 8-8 season with a 48-19 victory over the St. Louis Rams, the Cardinals' highest-scoring game in 30 years.

The .500 record under first-year Coach Ken Whisenhunt is Arizona's best since going 9-7 and making the playoffs in 1998. The Cardinals' only other non-losing season in 23 years was 8-8 in 1994, Buddy Ryan's first year as Arizona coach.

Kurt Warner threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns but was intercepted twice. Oshiomogho Atogwe returned one of the interceptions 52 yards for a score for the Rams (3-13).

Quoteworthy: "It's unfortunate that we're not going to continue to play, because we're starting to hit our stride, especially on offense." -- Anquan Boldin, Cardinals receiver
