Sunday’s 52-0 victory over Oakland was by far St. Louis’ best performance of the season, and it was second-largest victory, based on final margin, in franchise history.

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.
