The St. Louis Rams have been up-and-down this season if you only look at their record but if you’ve watched them play in each game you’d see they have a solid team that always plays their opponents close. This was considered a trap game by many since the Atlanta Falcons were coming off a last-second win against the Baltimore Ravens and have the Green Bay Packers next week. They may be right.
The Rams’ Sam Bradford found tight end Michael Hoomanawanui for a 25-yard touchdown pass to give the Rams a first quarter, 7-0 lead. The drive lasted only three plays after a Falcons punt. During that drive, Steven Jackson became only the fourth Ram player to go over 10,000 total yards from scrimmage. Wide receiver Laurent Robinson, a former Falcons, had one catch for 24 yards on that drive.
The Falcons have always been resilient coming back from deficits all season long. They’ll get another chance to do so here.
