St. Louis Rams Can't Come Back, Lose Ugly Vs. Washington Redskins

The St. Louis Rams fall to 0-4 with an awful loss to the Washington Redskins as Sam Bradford puts together one of the worst performances of his career.

The St. Louis Rams had two chances to rally in the fourth quarter, but the offensive line couldn't protect Sam Bradford and Sam Bradford had no magic left in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the Washington Redskins. With the loss the Rams fall to 0-4 ahead of their bye week, and aside from flashes in Week 2 they've looked every bit the 0-4 part. Ryan Torain ran for 135 yards and two late interceptions from Rex Grossman weren't enough to keep the Rams from falling by a score of 17-10.

Sam Bradford just doesn't appear to have the personnel to carry out Josh McDaniels's complex offense; he was 20-for-43 for just 164 yards and a touchdown, one of the worst performances of his young career. Of course, he was also sacked seven times. Steven Jackson was ineffectual in his return to starting, carrying the ball 17 times for 45 yards, although he did catch the Rams' lone touchdown.

With a bye week next Sunday, the Rams will have to come into the second half of their remarkably tough early schedule looking different somehow—I can only imagine Steve Spagnuolo and Josh McDaniels will be trying a number of looks ahead of their return to action on the road in Week 6.
