Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff only made one bad decision Sunday: He threw toward Patrick Peterson.

The Arizona Cardinals cornerback intercepted a pass as the defense finally got a stop against the surging Rams in the third quarter.

The drive began with a 57-yard bomb from Goff to receiver Brandin Cooks, who had beat Jamar Taylor deep. The Rams jumped from their 21-yard line to Arizona’s 22 in one play.

It looked like the Rams were going to extend their 19-0 lead.

But the next time Goff targeted Cooks, Peterson was there. He intercepted it at the two-yard line, getting his feet down just before falling out of bounds.

It was his first interception of 2018, which matches his 2017 total.

On the ensuing Cardinals drive, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald also reminded the Rams of his presence. He made a diving catch on third-and-five to push Arizona off their own goal line and make a little progress down the field.

It couldn’t spark a drive, though, as the Cardinals punted yet again.

Arizona lost 34-0 to the Rams.
