Dont Turn The Ball Over: Mission Accomplished

The Rams had some very close calls, with a fumble by Gurley that was miraculously recovered by St Louis and another fumble that was blown dead due to forward motion that likely would have resulted in an Arizona touch down. However, the Rams did not turn the ball over and that was the goal. The Rams also caused two turnovers on the other end, so the turnover battle was won. If the Rams had turned the ball over once, the game would have likely went the other way, so no turnovers by the Rams was huge.
