Glendale, AZ (.com) - Carson Palmer completed 27-of-32 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown to lead the Arizona Cardinals to a 30-10 win over the St. Louis Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 12 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown while Andre Ellington and Rashard Mendenhall added one rushing score apiece for the Cardinals (8-5), winners in five of their last six games.

Arizona rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu was carted off the field in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury. Mathieu attempted to return to the sideline after he was tackled awkwardly fielding a free kick, but collapsed in pain.

Kellen Clemens was 16-for-27 passing for 181 yards and two interceptions, and Zac Stacey added a rushing score for the Rams (5-8), who have dropped two straight and five of seven overall.

The Rams also lost a rookie to injury as Tavon Austin left the game early in the fourth quarter with an apparent right ankle injury. Austin broke a 56-yard rush off an end around, but was injured after he was tackled inside the Cardinals' 5-yard line.
