Rams Vs. Colts Final Score: St. Louis Gets Crushed 38-3 In Preseason Opener

The St. Louis Rams are hoping to rebound from a disappointing 2011 this year, but they didn't get off to a great start on Sunday. In the team's preseason debut, St. Louis got crushed 38-3 by the Indianapolis Colts, as 2012 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck made his in-game debut.

Considered a potential franchise player, Luck didn't disappoint on Sunday, completing his first pass for a 63-yard touchdown before ultimately finishing 10-of-16 for 188 yards and two touchdowns while leading the Colts to a 21-3 halftime advantage.

Even with Luck off the field, things didn't get much better for the Rams in second half as the Colts simply expanded their lead. St. Louis never got in the end zone, finishing the game with 215 total yards, two turnovers and a single field goal in the second quarter after a solid drive led by Kellen Clemens.

The Rams played solid run defense throughout the game, but they struggled to stop the Colts' passing game. Between Luck, back-up Drew Stanton and third-stringer Chandler Harnisch, the three combined to complete 21-of-30 passes for 314 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions, plus they only got sacked a combined one time.
