St. Louis Rams
Sam Bradford and the St Louis Rams are growing up before our eyes. Once again they found themselves entering the halftime break, trailing on the road despite a strong defensive effort, trying to dig themselves out of a hole of their own making on offense. Once again, the Rams made adjustments to their gameplan, and got big plays from someone other than Danny Amendola to secure a win.
Subtract the interception heroics of Janoris Jenkins in Week 12, and the story of the Rams win over the Buffalo Bills is a lot like the story of their win over the Arizona Cardinals two weeks earlier. Those two games sandwich a five-quarter gut-check win at home over the San Francisco 49ers, for a three game winning streak.
That this is the longest such streak in six years isn't much of a surprise for anyone who watched much of the last five years of football. But the character of these three wins belongs firmly to Jeff Fisher. He has coaxed suffocating performances by the defensive front s...

Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' contest with the visiting NFC's St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: Only two quarterbacks have been sacked more times than Sam Bradford, so the Bills' Mario Williams-led front-seven, despite missing Chris Kelsay, should have plenty of opportunities to get into...

Somewhere along the change in servers the last few True or False articles were deleted. Unfortunately I do not have the standings due to this. Things like this happen so no big deal.
That said, we’ll march forward into a few week and see what the writers at Queen City Sports believe are true or false in regards to the Bills-Rams game.

ORCHARD PARK -- The National Football League is a league of finishers, according to Buffalo Bills linebacker Bryan Scott. "The teams that know how to finish, win," he said. "And the teams that don't, lose." Scott's theory passed muster Sunday afternoon at soggy Ralph Wilson Stadium as the St. Louis Rams, behind quarterback Sam Bradford, finished with...
