The St. Louis Rams did not have an awful season in 2014, but a 6-10 record isn’t what they were hoping for. It was a season filled with close losses, wins over big-time teams, and yet another season-ending injury to quarterback Sam Bradford. The Rams have a lot to think about and some good things going forward so 2014 proved a lot.
Last week, the New York Giants (5-9) played against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. This week, the Giants take on the other half of the RG3 blockbuster trade, as they travel to St. Louis to face the Rams. Pride is a stake, as two non-playoff teams face each other in an otherwise meaningless contest.
A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
With Sam Bradford out for the season, it’s time to look at who should become the new Rams quarterback this year.
Bill Belichick chased after and made contact with a replacement official after the Patriots’ Sunday night loss.
Matthew Stafford’s return to the lineup lasted less than two games. The Detroit quarterback hurt his right shoulder again late in his team’s 23-20 overtime loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.
Detroit Lions linebacker Zack Follett was hospitalized after a violent helmet-to-helmet hit with a Giants player while covering a fourth-quarter kickoff return.
It would be difficult for the Giants to lose this one, unless they get sloppy with the ball or careless in drawing penalties.
