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.
