Rams Win Big Over Browns


The Rams came out and played ball in the second half.  A beautiful site to see.  Rams rookie RB Gurley scored the first TD of his career (2 of them).  After a 41 yard strike from Foles to Britt, Gurley took it in from 1 yard out.  Later in the 4th he capped off a Rams drive which started with a fumble recovery.  Gurley rushed 16 yards to the right for a beautiful TD run.  The Rams defense played tough all day and forced the Browns into 4 turnovers and a lot of penalties.  The Rams sacked Browns QB McCown 4 times.

Here are a few of the game stats:

Today we saw something we haven’t seen in a long time.  The Rams played big against a (on paper) lesser opponent and came away with a win.  Typically, we are so up and down.  We play a big opponent and we might come away with a big win, but then we play a team like the Browns and time after time we lose what seemed to be a very winnable game.  The other thing is we won a pivotal game.  We alway lose these games.  I mean at least for about the last 10 years.  Coming into this game with a record of 2-3… this was almost a must win game to keep or get our season on track.  At 2-4 we’re once again a non presence in the NFL landscape, but with this win we’re 3-3, second in our division and most importantly… we are relevant.  For the next four weeks we plays struggling teams (Niners, Vikings, Bears, Ravens).  If we can win 3 of the 4, we’re 6-4 and staring the playoffs squarely in the face.

Regardless, today was a big win Rams fans.  Next week we look forward to playing division rivals SF 49ers at the Edward Jones Dome.  This is still not a game we can take lightly.  Embattled 49ers QB Kaepernick passed for over 300 yards a couple weeks back against the Ravens.  The Rams can not give them an inch.  Exciting times for the first time in a long time.  Go Rams!!!

    This game looked really familiar to me as a Rams fan: drives killed or kept alive by penalties and stupid mistakes. Only this time, it wasn’t the Rams making them!
