The St. Louis Rams had three trips into the red zone Sunday afternoon in Miami but only cashed in with one touchdown, an abysmal rate of 33 percent. For this reason alone, the Rams are 3-3 instead of 4-2 following a 17-14 defeat at the hands of the Miami Dolphins. Well, maybe not just that reason. St. Louis had many opportunities to make plays on all areas of the field, in all phases of the game. There was crucial play after crucial play that altered the final score in hindsight. But the most glaring disposition is one the Rams have faced all season and seasons’ prior: they can't convert red-zone trips into touchdowns. Although they had been getting away with this flaw in 2012, the Rams’ safety net — rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein — finally showed signs of wear and tear.

'Re-energized' Rams Relying on Youth, Defense

The St. Louis Rams, who haven't had a winning record since 2003, enter Sunday's home game against Green Bay with a 3-3 record. It's a new-look franchise, from the coach (Jeff Fisher) to the roster (31 of the 53 players are new to the team). A defense full of top picks is leading the way.

"Greg the Leg" Zuerlein comes back down to earth

While Felix Baumgartner was busy breaking the sound barrier with his jump from outer space, many St. Louis Rams fans felt that it would be just a matter of time before kicker Greg Zuerlein would break the record for longest field goal in NFL history. Zuerlein got an opportunity to do so in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but failed to crack the record books. In...

St. Louis Rams' notebook, Week 6 - holding steady

To the casual football fan, the St. Louis Rams didn't look too much like the lesser team in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins. Sure, both teams currently sit at 3-3 following the game but so do 10 other NFL franchises, including the entire AFC East. The game didn't get nationally televised thanks to the Dallas Cowboys – Baltimore Ravens battle, but it still pitted...

Cruddy: Rams simply need more play-makers
