Consistency on Defense: Yes

For the most part anyway. The Rams played a great game of defense against a tough offense. They held Arizona to field goals on their first five scores and only made one major mistake the entire game. The Rams fully completed this key to victory despite giving up over 400 yards of total offense. The Rams did something way more important than giving up yards, they kept Arizona out of the end zone.
