Rams Play Tough In Own Division
- Rams Rookie Janoris Jenkins returns Interception for TD
The St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher is 3-0-1 against division NFC West rivals. In those games the Rams have allowed one touchdown pass, collected seven interceptions and recorded 18 sacks. Sunday, the Rams seemingly started slow the first half mindful of play the last couple of weeks. They faced rookie Ryan Lindley of the Arizona Cardinals who lead the cardinals to a touchdown on their first drive of the game. This week the Rams coaches made the proper adjustments at halftime and in the second half put more pressure on Lindley, forced turnovers and gave rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins two touchdowns from interceptions and a career game.
Quarterback Sam Bradford seemed to garner negative conversation about his ability but it changed as he got rolling. Bradford went 8 for 17 throwing touchdown passes to Lance Kendricks and Chris Givens and finished with a 106.3 passer rating.
Stephen Jackson had one of his best games in a while with 139 yards on 24carries getting him close to his 8th 1000 yard season in a row. The Rams still young continue to shoot themselves in the foot but played tough winning 31- 17 as they continue to get better. Next up division leaders San Francisco.
