St. Louis Rams score just 7 points as New England Patriots run roughshod at Wembley

The St. Louis Rams could score just seven points in their London "home game" against the New England Patriots Sunday afternoon, but that wasn't really the problem—the problem was that the Patriots could score 45, and did, with Josh McDaniels adjunct Brandon Lloyd catching two touchdown passes and Rob Gronkowski—backed up by former Rams Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells—catching eight balls for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

The Rams, meanwhile—well, they just didn't. Sam Bradford was 22-for-30 for 205 yards, a touchdown, and a late interception that will be equally assessed on Brian Quick, while Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson could barely get going before the blowout began. The only bright spot? Chris Givens going deep, as usual.

When that happened, the Rams were leading 7-0. What happened afterward is a little hard to explain, even if you aren't a Londoner out to see American football for the first and only time in your life. Some combination of the Patriots' offense being stupendous and the Rams' defense having its worst game of the season.
