The Cardinals got their first offensive touchdown of Sunday’s game four minutes into the third quarter, but they didn’t have to wait long for a second one.
Three plays after the Cardinals tied the score at 17 on a James Conner touchdown catch, safety Jalen Thompson picked off a Russell Wilson pass intended for running back Travis Homer. Thompson returned the ball to the one-yard-line and the Cardinals turned to Conner once again.
Conner scored on a run this time and his 18th touchdown of the season has the Cardinals up 24-17 with just over nine minutes to play in the quarter.
The Cardinals need a win and a Rams loss to take the division, so they’ll be doing some scoreboard watching the rest of the way in Arizona.
