ST. LOUIS -- Give the Cardinals credit for their businesslike approach against an inferior opponent.
The Rams had given other teams problems lately, forcing the Saints to play a complete game against them.
The Cardinals have shown up on defense, stuffing Steven Jackson on two consecutive runs to turn over the ball on downs. Coach Ken Whisenhunt and the offensive staff have been creative, unveiling at least one new personnel-formation combination.
The running game continues to be there for the Cardinals. That will be key for their offense as they try to open up more big plays down the field. Arizona, up 21-3, is picking up where it left off against the Seahawks last week.
