ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Beanie Wells ran wild all day. Patrick Peterson needed one touch to make a huge contribution for the Arizona Cardinals.
Peterson tied the NFL record with his fourth punt return for a touchdown this season, Wells set a franchise mark with 228 yards rushing on 27 carries, and the Cardinals won their seventh in a row in St. Louis with a 23-20 victory Sunday over the Rams.
Wells' career day included gains of 71 and 53 yards, the latter setting up Jay Feely's go-ahead 22-yard field goal with 4:12 remaining. Rookie Sam Acho also had a career day on defense with two sacks and a fumble recovery.
That was enough for Arizona (4-7) to overcome another awful outing by John Skelton, who threw two interceptions.
Brandon Lloyd's 16-yard TD catch from Sam Bradford tied it at 20 midway through the fourth quarter. Nick Miller had an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter for the Rams (2-9) only three days after he re-signed with the team.
BEST OF MAXIM
Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals has tied the NFL record by returning his fourth punt for a touchdown in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.
The rookie returned a punt 80 yards in the third quarter to put the Cardinals ahead 20-10. He was untouched as he raced up the middle of the field in becoming the fourth player with four punt returns in a season.
Patrick Peterson was touted as the safest pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, but the Arizona Cardinals may start to argue that Peterson is the best pick in the draft.
The rookie tied the NFL record with his fourth punt return for a touchdown this season, just three weeks after his 99-yard return in overtime beat the St. Louis Rams.
According to NFL.com Peterson stated, "I was...

The latter assumption may be true, but it doesn't matter because the formerassumption is officially dead after a banged-up Wells set a career-high andfranchise record with 228 rushing yards in the Cardinals' 23-20 win at...

Beanie Wells, Running Back, Arizona Cardinals. Many pivotal fantasy matchups turned Sunday on the performance of Chris Wells, likely meaning that a lot of bad fantasy teams (since, you know, they're starting Beanie Wells) beat a lot of good ones. It's only the third game of his career when he's been over 100 yards,...
The Rams' run defense gave up 223 yards to Beanie Wells, making this the second time this season that the Rams have allowed an opponent to set a new franchise rushing record. Wells' performance joins Demarco Murray's atop the NFL leaderboard, and there is now little to look forward to but the draft. And open season on the men who might be running it.
Our men in gold...

The Cardinals played defense and ran the ball today and those are the biggest reasons for the win today. John Skelton had another horrible game for the Cardinals today as he completed 12 of 23 passes for 114 yards with 0 TD passes and 2 INTs. Beanie Wells was awesome today for the Cardinals as he rushed for 228 yards on 27 carries (8.4 ypc) with 1 TD run. WR Larry Fitzgerald...
