The Blue & Gold was in San Diego for a key matchup against the AFC West’s Chargers, and for fans of the club, it had to feel good to watch their team battle to the end against a quality team that made the playoffs last year.
But like so many (and too many) Rams’ performances in recent memory, Sunday’s contest ended in heartache, as St. Louis fell just short (again) in a 27-24 loss to San Diego.
Rams defensive captain came back to practice last week, could play, but probably won’t Sunday in San Diego.
Defense set the tone, offense was steady, and special teams were, well, special on Sunday, as Rams battered the visiting Broncos for a 22-7 victory at the Edward Jones Dome.
It was another tough day for the St. Louis Rams, who blew yet another lead, in Sunday’s 31-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
It was another disheartening Sunday for the St. Louis Rams — perhaps the most disappointing performance for the club since the season opening loss to Minnesota.
Despite the glitz and glamour of hosting ESPN’s Monday Night Football at the Edward Jones Dome on Monday, the St. Louis Rams delivered yet another not-quite-ready-for-prime-time performance, in what proved to be a 31-17 loss to the surging San Francisco 49ers.
It was almost a historic comeback for the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, who trailed 34-7 before rallying back to 34-28 late in the fourth quarter.

Amidst all the chaos of the Rams building a 21-0 first half lead, then blowing that lead in an eventual 34-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, perhaps the most intriguing moment of the day came on sideline, when tight end Jared Cook shoved quarterback Austin Davis, even though it seemed like Davis was only trying to console Cook after he dropped a sure touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.
The St. Louis Rams led 21-0 midway through the second quarter on Sunday, but were unable to hold onto that lead, as the Dallas Cowboys scored 20 straight points to get back into the game, then outscored the home club 14-10 in the fourth quarter to earn themselves a 34-31 win at the Edward Jones Dome.
One series into Sunday’s Week 2 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked a whole lot like last week’s Week 1 contest against the Minnesota Vikings — the St. Louis Rams were getting pushed around the field and seemed unable to do anything about it.
