This Sunday, KC will meet the Rams with a 3-3 record, thanks in no small part to its offense, which ranks 20th overall in total yards (340.0 per game). But that doesn’t tell the whole story, as the Chiefs are the No. 1 rushing team in the AFC (third-best overall) with 140.3 rush yards per game.
A raucous home crowd of 57,855 saw the St. Louis Rams grab their first home win of the season on Sunday, in a 28-26 triumph over the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
Rams Injury Report: Injured Players Johnson, Jones, McGee All Return To Practice, Could Play Sunday vs. Seahawks
Two players who hadn’t been seen much since the preseason, and another whose been out for more than a month, all returned to practice this week for the St. Louis Rams, leaving open the possibility they could play this Sunday when the Rams host the Seattle Seahawks at the Edward Jones Dome.
Even though his team hadn’t been winning much since he took over as the starting quarterback a little over a month ago, St. Louis Rams’ signal-caller Austin Davis was still drawing high praise from league observers for his individual play in his first three NFL starts.
After playing on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and suffering a stinging 31-17 loss to the rival San Francisco 49ers, and with one less day to get ready for Sunday’s visit by the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, nearly every member of the St. Louis Rams roster made his way in to the Rams Park training facility for either some type of injury treatment, film study, or perhaps even to get an early look at the gameplan for the coming week.
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.
One day after not practicing at all, running back Zac Stacy returned to practice and participated in every drill and every first-team rep for the St. Louis Rams starting offense on Friday.
One of the biggest gripes critics have had with Jeff Fisher during his three years as head coach of the St. Louis Rams is his team’s constant tendency to commit penalties.
In 2012, the Rams were the most penalized team in the NFL. Last year, they were the second-most flagged team in the league. And this year, through four games, St. Louis is averaging nine penalties a game, which is the fifth most total in the league.
It doesn’t get any easier this week, as St. Louis will find itself on the national stage with a Monday Night Football matchup coming up against the big, bad 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.
But Sunday proved to be just another day for another loss, as the Rams fell to the Philadelphia Eagles by that 34-28 score.
