It was a great game for the New England Patriots but a horrible game for the Saint Louis Rams.  The Rams have had a lot of trouble beating the  Patriots since the Super Bowl loss to them and today was no exception.  The final score of the game was 45-7. The Rams actually did dominate the ball.  The Rams had the ball for 31:06 while the Patriots had it for just under 29 minutes.  The Rams had only 57 plays while the Patriots had 66 plays during  the game.Once again, the penalties were a big killer for the Rams.  The Rams once again had a total of 12 penalties during the game.  They also had a whopping 102 penalty yards.  The Rams who have some good sackers weren't able to get any sacks in during the game.  The good news is that the Patriots were only able to sack them two times.  The Rams defense is usually very good, but today it was  just horrible.  They allowed over forty points to be scored by their opponents and had a fantasy score of -4.Chris Givens was the bright spot of the game for the Rams.  He had a touchdown and three receptions.  He also ran for 63 yards.  That's not bad for a 7th round pick.The good news is that the Rams now have their bye week to recover.  The other good news is that Danny Amendola should be back week 10.   The not so good news is that they play the 49ers at Candlestick Park.  Hopefully they'll make a comeback.
