Found October 14, 2012 on STLSportsMinute:
Despite racking up 462 yards of total offense versus only 192 yards for the Miami Dolphins, the St. Louis Rams fell to the Dolphins 17-14 on Sunday afternoon in southern Florida. St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 315 yards and rushed for a fourth quarter touchdown in the defeat.   Bradford completed 26 of his 39 attempts. Meanwhile the Rams running game was solid behind the two-headed monster that is Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson.  Richards rushed the ball 11 times for 76 yards while Jackson touched it 12 times for 52 yards.  Bradford also racked up 34 yards on the ground to go with his one yard touchdown run. The Rams defense played outstanding for most of the day with one exception.  A blown coverage allowed Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill to find a wide open Marlon Moore for a 29 yard score. The Rams outplayed the Dolphins, but were unable to capitalize and punch it in to the end zone. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein also had a tough afternoon.  Zuerle...

Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein has a horrible performance in loss against Dolphins

Rams K Greg Zuerlein missed three field goals in Sunday’s Week 6 loss to the Dolphins. Zuerlein missed from 52, 37 and 66 yards out. They are the first three misses of his NFL career. We wouldn’t worry too much about Legatron’s off day, and the Rams’ inept red-zone offense should keep bringing him chances. Zuerlein trails only Lawrence Tynes in field-goal attempts this season...

Steven Jackson Splits Time with Richardson

Rams running back Steven Jackson was healthy, but split time evenly with rookie Daryl Richardson.Fantasy Spin:This is not good news for Jackson's fantasy owners. Miami's defense was ranked No. 1 against the run heading into the game so not much was expected of Jackson, but this new strategy, if ongoing, is a shift that will significantly reduce Jackson's fantasy value.

Ryan Tannehill is turning into a franchise quarterback in Miami

Earlier this year the Dolphins fans were outside the stadium and complaining about the ownership and GM, their team is tied for first in the division. I know it sounds crazy but the Dolphins have a great shot. Ryan Tannehill has brought the team back into playoff talks. Right now everyone in the AFC East has a fair shot, because they are all 3-3. This weekend Ryan Tannehill completed...

Week 5 Preview – St. Louis Rams vs. Miami Dolphins

  Looking at the numbers, this doesn’t look good for the Rams. Since the end of the 2007 season, the Rams have won exactly five road games. Yes, this is a different team, but this new team is 0 and 2 on the road. The Rams need to be able to run the ball, or at least threaten the run to have offensive success. Turns out, Miami is the number one defense against the run in the...

Joe Philbin outcoaches veteran Jeff Fisher

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Score this one for Mr. Second Choice. When the Miami Dolphins went looking for a coach after last season, Jeff Fisher was tops on their list. But Fisher spurned the Fish and went to St. Louis. He returned to Dolphins turf Sunday for the first time since his interview last January. And what happened? Fisher, a guy coaching his 268th NFL regular-season game...

The Rams moved from their own 3 to the Dolphins' 48-yard-line in eight plays over the final 1:41, but they...

Cruddy: Rams simply need more play-makers

Statistically speaking, the St. Louis Rams dominated the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon in South Florida.  Unfortunately, the result did not reflect what happened on the field as the Rams lost 17-14 to the Dolphins. Despite racking up 462 yards of total offense, versus just 192 for the Dolphins, the Rams were only able to muster 14 points and lost their third road game of...

Dolphins show knack for winning close games

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Calling for a fake punt with four minutes left is risky stuff from a rookie coach, especially one as even-keel as Joe Philbin. The Miami Dolphins coach concedes Las Vegas isn't for him. He does play the odds though, which paid off in Miami's 17-14 win Sunday over the St. Louis Rams. A successful fake punt was one of several key plays by the Dolphins down...

Sam Bradford Gets Bent Backwards During TD Run

via Bleacher ReportI think that Sam Bradford may need to spend some time in the hot tub this evening to cure what will most likely be an incredibly sore back following this short TD run. Karlos Dansby of the Miami Dolphins jumped over the pile and literally bent Sam completely backwards. Check out the video below and you will see how amazing it is that Bradford wasn’t seriously...

Packers to Their Critics: 'Shhhh!'

The Packers' confidence has been bolstered by a big win at Houston, not that there was anything "wrong" with the team. Now, the page turns to the vastly improved St. Louis Rams.

Dolphins Outlast Rams

The Miami Dolphins' dysfunction took many forms Sunday, including a backward pass by Ryan Tannehill that flew out of bounds for a 7-yard loss. His offensive linemen managed to commit four penalties in a three-play span, while defensive breakdowns and replay overrules were recurring problems. Even so, the Dolphins did enough right to hold off the St. Louis Rams, 17-14.
