Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell drew rave reviews for his performance in Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Rams.

“I’m not sure I’ve seen a defensive tackle dominate a game like I saw Calais Campbell,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said per Arizona Sports. “I mean he had 11 tackles and completely controlled the line of scrimmage. To me, maybe his best game as a pro.”

Arizona coach Bruce Arians was equally effusive in his praise of the 6-foot-8, 300-pound Campbell, who registered 43.5 sacks over his previous seven seasons with the Cardinals. 

“(He) was lights out,” said Arians, who labeled the effort by Campbell “as dominating a performance as you could ask for a defensive lineman.”
