Arizona Sports News online

Each week during the NFL season Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell joins Brad Cesmat on Tuesday’s at 12:15 on ‘Big Guy on Sports’ for ‘Crunch Time with Calais.’

Due to the abbreviated week with the Cardinals playing the St. Louis Rams Thursday night, Calais checked in on Monday’s show to share his ‘Calais Keys’ for this week as the Red Birds look to move to a perfect 5-0.

Shut down the Rams best offensive player

“I know [running back] Steven Jackson is gotta be the number guy to stop. He’s that good…if you let him get going he can tear you apart. For sure, we have to shut down Steven Jackson….anytime you play the Rams, he’s the guy you want to stop first.”

Put heat on quarterback Sam Bradford

“[Bradford] has a strong arm and can make a lot of tough throws. We have to make sure we put pressure on him and try to get him rattled and uncomfortable in the pocket.” 

Kickoff is Thursday at 5:20 p.m. and the game will be televised on CBS-5 and the NFL Network.
