Rams vs. 49ers 2012: Sam Bradford plays well in tie

Brian Bahr

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford excelled in St. Louis' 24-24 tie against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10.

Though quarterbacks are often measured in wins and losses, they are seldom measured in ties -- which is exactly what the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers played to in Week 10.

Despite the tie, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford played admirably, completing 26-of-39 passes for 275 yards and two touchdown strikes. Bradford found wide receiver Danny Amendola 11 times in Amendola's first game back in over a month after missing time with a clavicle injury.

The folks over at Turf Show Times, SB Nation's St. Louis Rams blog, were quite happy with what they saw out of Bradford on Sunday -- against one of the toughest defenses in the league.

I've been downright doubtful about Sam Bradford, but he just simply got it done in this game. That last drive of the fourth quarter, what should have been the game-winner, he was nails. He was a perfect 5-for-5 from the fake punt to the Austin Pettis touchdown. It's exactly the kind of play I've been wanting to see from him for a long time, and he answered huge this week.

Bradford was selected by the Rams with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and has been inconsistent so far in his young career. Bradford, though, has played with a different offensive coordinator in each of his three season with St. Louis, making it difficult for Bradford to progress within a system.

Hopefully for the Rams and Rams fans, Bradford's showing was a sign of things to come, rather than a mirage in the desert.
