St. Louis Rams
Two defensive-minded teams with sub-par quarterbacks produced the lowest-scoring game of the season last night. The Arizona Cardinals improved to 11-3 without scoring a touchdown, winning in St. Louis 12-6.
The Rams have been especially strong, as they are coming off back-to-back shutouts. While three in a row does not look likely, they could very well hold the visitor to less than two touchdowns.
The St. Louis Rams aren’t necessarily out of the playoff race, but one more loss could get them to that point. The Arizona Cardinals have struggled a little since Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending injury. Now, the two NFC West teams are going to battle it out on “Thursday Night Football” and CBS Sports’ Dan Fouts talked about how important the game is for both.
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.
A week after their “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” show of solidarity, several St. Louis Rams players made another societal statement Sunday with the message: “I Can’t Breathe.”
“Two things are gonna happen that I believe are already done. It’s just a matter of time before they’re announced. Both the Rams and the Raiders are gonna go to L.A.”
It’s heating up in Green Bay. Say what? Yep, the Packers couldn’t be hotter.
The Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams are two teams heading in completely opposite directions, but sometimes that’s just the way the schedule falls. The Broncos don’t need a win this week, but want one. The Rams desperately need a win to try and save their season. CBS Sports’ Ian Eagle spoke about their upcoming game and looked at both sides of the spectrum.
While Sam may still become the first openly gay player on a regular-season NFL roster, we are long overdue for others to look in the mirror and recognize it’s their time to pick up the check.
The Seahawks dominated statistically, outgaining the Rams 463-272. But for St. Louis, special teams trickery was the difference.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 343 yards and three touchdowns, helping the San Francisco 49ers erase an early 14-point deficit and beat the St. Louis Rams 31-17 on Monday night.
The NFL’s first openly gay player reportedly had a powerful ally working behind the scenes after he was cut by Rams over the weekend.
Sam is back in the NFL four days after being cut by the Rams. And he has a shot of seeing game action this season with serious questions surrounding the Cowboys defense.
ESPN was forced to moonwalk from a report that Sam had not showered with his Rams teammates. Why? Not as in why didn’t he, but why take a fire extinguisher to the story? Clearly it means something.
Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said Sam “is on our list of negotiations” after the NFL’s first openly gay player to be drafted was cut by the Rams over the weekend.
