The Rams didn't cause too much of a problem for the Patriots on Sunday, but the same can't be said for Hurricane Sandy. As the big storm slams into the northeast region of the United States, the Patriots are stuck across the pond, apparently unable to leave London due to the inclement weather, according to WHDH-TV in Boston.

He didn't seem too concerned about it, though. "I was hoping we'd get stranded here all week," Lloyd joked after the 45-7 victory. While that probably won't be the case, it's clear that Sandy is already being problematic -- much more so than any Sam Bradford-led offense.
