The facts: The Cardinals fell to 3-9 with a 19-6 home defeat to the St. Louis Rams in Week 13.
The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Jay Feely made both field goal tries.
Defensive end Calais Campbell returned from an ankle injury and had a sack.
The Cardinals became the second team this season to hold Rams rookie Sam Bradford without a touchdown pass.
Safety Kerry Rhodes had a sack and an interception. He has three interceptions this season.
Arizona scored on its first two possessions and led after the first quarter.
Tim Hightower had runs of 32 and 20 yards, helping him average 5.4 yards per attempt.
Arizona remains at least mathematically alive in the NFC West race. One more Seattle victory would eliminate the Cardinals from contention.
The Cardinals needed a franchise quarterback almost no matter how they performed this season. Losing seven in a row has put them in better position to draft one.
Looking ahead: The Cardinals face the Denver Broncos at University of Phoenix Stadium in Week 14.
