On the second play of the game during the Rams' 17-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford threw the ball downfield to Amendola, who was well covered by Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. Turning around to face the ball, Amendola grabbed it with his left hand and fell to the ground.
That was as good as it would get for Amedonla, who injured his shoulder in the second quarter and came out of the game.
The Rams had nine sacks in the game, their most since 1998, to hand Arizona its first loss of the season.
"They've [the Rams defense] played great all year," Bradford said. "They've kept us in a lot of games. Fortunately, we were able to make the big play in the fourth quarter to go up two scores, but all the credit tonight to our defense.”
Hey, give a little credit to Amendola too. His spectacular grab, which you can watch above, set up the Rams' first touchdown.
