ST. LOUIS Like most fathers of six kids, Scott Wells expects Christmas morning to be quite the show at his home. Wrapping paper will fly. There will be few hours of sleep. At some point during the blizzard of activity near the tree, he'll give thanks for three gifts.
"It will be chaos," said Wells, the St. Louis Rams' center, who in August adopted three Ugandan orphans Caroline (age 5), Elijah (3) and R.J. (2) with his wife, Julie. "It will be absolute chaos, as it is every Christmas with the kids. I will be lucky if they sleep, because I know how I was as a child. I was up at 5 a.m. trying to catch Santa. It will be pretty special. I'm really excited about it."
Wells has reason to be, because this Christmas is about firsts with his family's three new members. Carols have been sung (they enjoy "Jingle Bells"). Decorating dos and don'ts have been taught ("We're teaching them that you can't take the ornaments off,&qu...

Sam Bradford has never cared much for numbers and statistics.
So the St. Louis Rams quarterback was surprised to find out he has been sacked in 30 successive games, the longest current streak in the NFL.
''That's great to know, thanks,'' he chuckled.
Bradford, the top overall pick in the 2010 draft, has endured his share of bumps and bruises this season, having...
ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis linebacker James Laurinaitis thinks it's about time Rams running back Steven Jackson got more recognition for his long, productive career.
On Sunday, Jackson became the 27th player in NFL history to rush for 10,000 yards when he ran for 73 yards in a 36-22 loss to Minnesota.
Laurinaitis, who leads the Rams (6-7-1) with 153 tackles, believes Jackson...
On Sunday many watched as Adrian Peterson carved up the St. Louis Rams for 212 yards. The Minnesota running back is chasing a 2000-yard season and Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record, but you all knew that. What many people didn’t realize is what the running back on the other side of the ball was doing.
St. Louis running back Steven Jackson came...

It’s week 16 and the Rams are still mathematically alive for a playoff spot, even in the tougher NFC. It’s not an accomplishment for most teams, but given this team’s recent history, it is for them. They’ve definitely played some decent football this year and...
The Bucs playoff chances are more than done at this point of the season but the coaching staff and players want something to build off of heading into next season. The task will not be as simple as one may think as they start the final two games off with hosting the Rams on Sunday. Offensive line needs a good game In week 11 against the Panthers, Josh Freeman was pressured and...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (Insider), should Rams RB Steven Jackson decide to void his contract and become a free agent following the season, the Green Bay Packers could be a potential suitor for the veteran running back.
“The Packers have always been interested in Jackson and now that his contract is up, it would make some sense for Green Bay to take a look,” writes...
St. Louis Rams (6-7-1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-8)
The Buccaneers got destroyed in New Orleans last week, losing 41-0. I generally like taking teams off a blowout loss. Teams in this situation tend to be overlooked, undervalued, and embarrassed. The most recent case of this was the Cardinals’ blowing out the Lions as huge home dogs last week after that 52-0 loss in Arizona the week...
