ST. LOUIS It has become the beast in the basement. It's too large to ignore, too heavy to show the door.
Got a convention hall? The St. Louis Rams could use a place to put their elephant in the room.
There's no other way to say it: The Rams struggle to find the end zone. Touchdowns have been as easy as root canals for this group of late, and the competition won't get lighter.
"We're just focusing on finishing," wide receiver Chris Givens said. "We're not finishing our drives, and that's the biggest thing. We're focusing on that and every aspect of our game. It definitely is frustrating, because we know we're a lot better team than what we've shown."
What they showed in October wasn't much. Since sticking 31 points on the Washington Redskins in Week 2, they have broken the plane almost as often as California votes Republican.
Against the Arizona Cardinals? Two touchdowns.
Against the Miami Dolphins? One.
BEST OF MAXIM

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rodger Saffold was pleased to be part of the St. Louis Rams' traveling party to London - until the game began.

The rule of thumb in NFC West divisional matchups is to always take the home team. Since 2007, the NFC West is 104-77 in general at home and they have not only the best ATS winning percentage of any division in football in that time period, they also have the winning home/road winning ATS percentage disparity of any division in football...
There is no mystery when the tape goes on and teams watch their opponent in preparation for that week's game. So it is that the Rams will face a team as physical as there is in the NFL when they travel to San Francisco Sunday. The 49ers have won 11 consecutive division games at home, and this season in two division wins over Seattle (home) and Arizona (road) they have allowed...

St. Louis: You just can’t help but feel sorry for the Rams.After getting over 40 points laid on them in a beating from the Patriots in London during Week 8, the Rams bookend their Week 9 bye with a trip to division rival San Francisco for what is inevitably another thorough beatdown.
