Quarterback Sam Bradford has had a tough time doing much of anything. He is just 5-of-13 for 37 yards with an interception on the afternoon. Steve Jackson has rushed for 35 yards, but no other Ram has managed more than two on the ground. As a team, St. Louis has just 71 total yards, to 174 for Buffalo.
Rian Lindell knocked down a 35-yard field goal late in the first quarter to open the scoring. That kick ended a 10-play, 56-yard drive. He added another, this one from 40 yards out with ten seconds remaining in the second quarter, to make it 6-0.
So even though they have yet to do anything offensively, the Rams are still in the game, trailing by just six. Part of that is due to James Laurinaitis's fumble recovery in the end zone to stifle a Buffalo drive. Laurinaitis, however, appeared to injure his ribs on the play. He was able to return to the game late in the second quarter.
