The Cardinals continued a forgettable season last week, dropping a 34-7 decision to the Los Angeles Rams. Running back Kenyan Drake rushed for just 31 yards on 13 carries. Arizona’s maligned pass defense gave up 424 passing yards and two touchdowns to Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Arizona finished with just 198 total yards to Los Angeles’ 549, and quarterback Kyler Murray completed just 19-of-34 pass attempts for 163 yards and an interception.
Pittsburgh, meanwhile, made the most of a second chance in a huge rivalry game against Cleveland, pulling away in the second half to win 20-13. Steelers wide receiver James Washington caught four passes for 111 yards and one touchdown — his first 100-yard receiving game of the season. Undrafted free agent quarterback Devlin Hodges threw for 212 yards in his first NFL start, and fellow rookie Benny Snell ran for 63 yards and a touchdown.
A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Arizona stumbles into Sunday’s matchup having given up an NFL-worst 31 passing touchdowns this season. On the other sideline, the Steelers enter Week 14 having given up a league-low five rushing touchdowns.
