But I heard he did a really good job, so I'm happy for him." Had the St. Louis Rams right tackle been able to both block and watch during the Rams' 34-20 win over the...

Sam Bradford Guns Down Jaguars

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford found the end zone three times in Week 5 against the Jaguars.Fantasy Spin:It must have been nice to play Jacksonville after looking awful against the 49ers last Thursday.

It is assumed that the defense...
