St. Louis comes in to Sunday the more rested team, but Philly will almost certainly be the angrier group of the two, which should make for a truly interesting matchup.
When the St. Louis Rams return to work on Monday, it will be to specifically to prepare for next Sunday’s game at Lincoln Financial Field against the Philadelphia Eagles. But a quick peek at the full upcoming schedule shows the Rams are facing quite possibly the most difficult eight-game stretch any team in the league has to play this season.
With no game this weekend, the Rams have plenty of time to reflect on their latest loss, a 34-31 defeat against the visiting Dallas Cowboys last Sunday after leading 21-0 in the second 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.
From the secretaries in front to the office workers in back, to the coaches and players milling about, hardly anyone seemed to be in a good mood one day after the Rams blew a 21-point first half lead in what proved to be a 34-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
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.
It’s looking more and more like the most important part of Jeff Fisher’s statement from Monday, regarding the Rams’ quarterback situation, was the last three words.
Looking to avoid any sort of quarterback controversy this year, Jeff Fisher insists that Shaun Hill will start if he’s healthy this weekend. But that simply begs the question, “Will Hill be healthy?”

Quarterback Shaun Hill practiced, but was still limited in what he was allowed to do on Friday, making it increasingly likely that third-year man Austin Davis will be the starter under center when the St. Louis Rams take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond Jayes Stadium this Sunday.
