St. Louis Rams
Two defensive-minded teams with sub-par quarterbacks produced the lowest-scoring game of the season last night. The Arizona Cardinals improved to 11-3 without scoring a touchdown, winning in St. Louis 12-6.
The Rams have been especially strong, as they are coming off back-to-back shutouts. While three in a row does not look likely, they could very well hold the visitor to less than two touchdowns.
The St. Louis Rams aren’t necessarily out of the playoff race, but one more loss could get them to that point. The Arizona Cardinals have struggled a little since Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending injury. Now, the two NFC West teams are going to battle it out on “Thursday Night Football” and CBS Sports’ Dan Fouts talked about how important the game is for both.
A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
A week after their “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” show of solidarity, several St. Louis Rams players made another societal statement Sunday with the message: “I Can’t Breathe.”
Colt McCoy took a blow to the back of the head from St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn and suddenly the Redskins’ quarterback situation is in flux. Again.
The Redskins trudged off the field to pure indifference. The boos were minimal. There weren’t enough fans left in the stands to make much of an impact anyway. They had long since departed FedEx Field before the final whistle sounded on a disheartening 24-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
During a blowout, shutout loss to the Rams, Washington Redskins fans began chanting for Robert Griffin III who was sidelined for the second time this season.
The St. Louis Rams have back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 1945, beating the Washington Redskins 24-0 Sunday and giving them their first winning streak of the season.
The Redskins will be without three key starters for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams at FedEx Field, including star wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
