After picking up their first win of the season last week against New Orleans, the Rams were given another spark before the game when it was announced that Sam Bradford would return from injury after missing the past two games. Although there were some worries about how mobile Bradford would be coming off an ankle injury, he was sharp in the 1st quarter, completing 6/8 attempts. However, Bradford did throw an interception to Patrick Peterson on an attempted flea-flicker.
Most importantly, the St. Louis Rams have continued to play tough defense after a dominant performance against the Saints. The Rams limited Beanie Wells to just five yards rushing in the opening quarter and kept consistent pressure on John Skelton.
Steven Jackson has also been strong, rushing for 41 yards on 12 carries. With a healthy Jackson, Bradford and Brandon Lloyd, the Rams have three of their most important players on the field together for the first time.
