Yes, the Bills making the playoffs are about as slim as me winning the NYS Powerball. They are 5-7 and have a great shot at being one game below .500 with a win. Hooray! This week, they take on the St. Louis Rams. As we do every week, we are joined by the opposing team's blogger. The fine folks over at Rams Herd answer all my questions about Sam Bradford, Jeff Fisher, their defense and Stephen Jackson. Enjoy and tell a friend.
1) If you were the opposing offensive/defensive coordinator, how would you attack the Rams?
The AFC East has been putting on a primer on “how to beat the Rams” so far. Defensively, the Rams play a lot of soft zone designed to let defensive backs keep the play in front of them, and mix in varying levels of blitz into their pass rush. If you have a premier offensive line like the Patriots, that means you can simply sit back in the pocket and run crosses and digs into the zone ad nauseam and wait for the eventual...

After the win against San Francisco, I would have expected numerous positive tweets and message board posts about Bradford’s play in the game. However, I saw something entirely different. The STLtoday Rams board was full of negative Bradford posts. People on twitter were wondering about the lack of touchdowns. Other fans saw Russell Wilson throw a touchdown pass to win the...
Wide receiver Danny Amendola and running back Stephen
Jackson both practiced Thursday for the St. Louis Rams, while center Scott Wells
was among the players that were out for yesterday’s session.
Jackson and Amendola both missed practice Wednesday. Jackson
was sidelined due to a foot injury, while Amendola has been hampered by a
lingering heel injury.
Jackson was a full...
St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins has scored three defensive touchdowns during the previous two weeks, helping the Rams to a pair of wins.
The victories have positioned the Rams, who now have a 5-6-1 record, for a shot at making the playoffs and Jenkins is a huge reason as to why.
The guys from The Cruddy Show debated on Wednesday night whether Jenkins should indeed be...
St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has announced that wide
receiver Danny Amendola is shaping up to be a game-time decision Sunday against
the Buffalo Bills, while running back Stephen Jackson is probable to play.
WR Danny Amendola (foot), LB Mario Haggan (elbow) are questionable. Coach Jeff Fisher said Amendola will be a game time decision.

ST. LOUIS (AP) Sam Bradford can't help but be excited about the St. Louis Rams' passing attack.
After two seasons with some of the least impressive receivers in the league, the third-year quarterback sees his options increasing with each week. His latest favorite target is rookie Chris Givens, who had a season-best 11 receptions in a 16-13 overtime victory against San Francisco...
(Eds: Updates.) By JASON YOUNG Associated Press The St. Louis Rams haven't had a defensive coordinator since Gregg Williams was handed an indefinite ban by the NFL for his part in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal.
St. Louis' defense also hasn't had a Pro Bowl selection since 2003, but with four games left in the regular season and faint playoff hopes still...
Rams wideout Danny Amendola was a limited participant in Friday's practice. He's questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo because of a heel injury.
Amendola will be a game-time decision and even if he plays, hell likely be on a snap count. If youre looking to use a St. Louis receiver this week, Chris Givens (16 catches, 207 yards in his last two games...

The St. Louis Rams will play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Both teams had expectations before the season began that they would be chasing after a wild card spot when Week 14 rolled around. Instead both teams find themselves riddled with questions.
St. Louis has not addressed the issues at wide receiver and have been inconsistent throughout the year. The player...
By all reckoning, the Rams were fortunate to come away with a win against the 49ers. If not for eight points put on the board by an opportunistic defense - with help from the referees, the NFL's arcane challenge rules, and a bizarre and poorly executed option play - the Rams lose. And if that had happened, one play would have stood out above all others as the crux of the loss...
