Defensive back hopes offseason training pays off in 2015
Defense gave up season-worst 514 yards as Rams fall to 6-9.
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.
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.
St. Louis’ most veteran defensive back, Janoris Jenkins, hasn’t practiced in two weeks and seems unlikely to play Sunday when the Rams take on the 7-1 Arizona Cardinals.
Absolutely no one expected St. Louis to travel out to San Francisco on Sunday, and deliver one of its best efforts of the season against a 49er team that had two weeks to prepare since it was coming off its bye.
With his team coming off a bad loss last Sunday in Kansas City, and staring down the barrel of a meeting with a rested and angry San Francisco 49er team this coming Sunday, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher made an unusual decision regarding the team’s first practice of the week on Wednesday.
St. Louis has 12 players listed with some type of ailment that could affect their ability to play Sunday, when the Rams travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the cross-state rival Kansas City Chiefs.
