Not much of a surprise here. Coming off a bye, the Rams had the nearly impossible task of trying to give Green Bay their first loss of the season. That wasn’t the case as 3 Aaron Rodgers 2nd quarter TD passes took care of St.Louis on Sunday. They added a first quarter field goal to cap off their scoring, while the Rams could only manage a field goal of their own in the second.
Bradford was able to throw for over 300 yards, but added no scores and an INT. Steven Jackson had a solid game with 96 yards on 18 carries, but also failed to find the endzone. This team needs to find ways to get into the redzone because right now they just aren’t doing it.
Some help could be on the way for next week though as the Rams acquired Brandon Lloyd from the Broncos for a late round conditional pick. They also plan to activate Mark Clayton from the PUP list in time for next weeks game at Dallas. This will give Bradford some weapons to work with next week as Lloyd will step in as a starter, and Clayton may not be far behind.
If there are any positives for the Rams on Sunday, the defense did hold Green Bay to 24 points. This is likely a result of them taking the pedal off the gas in the second half, but at least it is something.
With San Francisco sitting well atop the NFC West at 5-1, the Rams need some serious damage control to even think about the playoffs. Dallas is up next.
