Sam Bradford's Rushing Touchdown Cuts Lead To 31-13

After getting the St. Louis Rams to the one-yard-line with a 32-yard completion to Laurent Robinson, Sam Bradford had to take the ball into the end zone himself, scoring on a 4th-and-one sneak for the Rams’ first touchdown of the night. The Rams trail 31-13 after the score.

They almost didn’t get a chance to go for it on fourth down—the New Orleans Saints thought they’d recovered a Steven Jackson fumble on third and goal, but the Rams challenged the call and it was reversed on the appeal.

Bradford’s rushing touchdown was the first of his NFL career. Today he’s 18-for-32 with 231 yards and two interceptions as a quarterback. Jackson, who was stuffed twice on the goal line in pursuit of his fifth touchdown of the season, has 15 carries for 96 yards and four receptions for 38 more, but no touchdowns to show for it. The Saints lead 31-13 on the strength of two early touchdowns and a pick-six that capped off the first half.
