Rams Vs. Bears: Greg Zuerlein Keeps St. Louis Close, Rams Trail 10-6

The St. Louis Rams have struggled to keep their offense on the field in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, thanks in large part to their offensive line's struggles to keep Sam Bradford (12-for-24, 115 yards) upright. But they've gotten within 60 yards of the uprights twice, and Greg Zuerlein is keeping the score close—after a 46-yard field goal, the Rams trail the Bears 10-6.

Zuerlein is the Rams' only offensive asset having his usual game; Steven Jackson has nine carries for 27 yards, and Danny Amendola has three receptions for 41 yards. Rookie Greg Zuerlein, on the other hand, has 46 and 56-yard field goals, and has yet to miss in his NFL career.

Jay Cutler's struggles on the Bears side have kept the Rams in this game; Chris Long and Cortland Finnegan have been disrupting him at the line and downfield, and—well, the Chicago Bears don't always need hep to struggle on offense. If the Rams can stop Michael Bush a few times, for once, they're still absolutely in this game.
