Here's how long it's been since it's been since the St Louis Rams had a game like this: my five year old son has never done so many touchdown dances in one day. In fact, he ended up injuring himself as the Rams went up 38-6 in the 3rd quarter. He may be a game-time decision next week.
The game-crowning Rams points were put on the scoreboard after a joyous field-length romp by rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree, intercepting a telegraphed pass by TJ Yates on a telegraphed play-call by Gary Kubiak down at the goal line. The play poured gasoline on a raging fire in Houston, where the fan base seems to have turned on its team, but felt like part of a rebirth on the St Louis bench.
After a confounding first month of football, the Rams are starting to combine their young talent and veteran coaching to create winning football.

Let's not pretend that the Rams fixed all of the problems that have plagued them this season, but they solved two big ones this weekend against the Houston Texans: They firmly established a running game with Zac Stacy, and they cleaned up their maddening penalties on special teams. I'm not sure how the math works, but somehow that added up to a blowout win.no comments
