St. Louis Rams
The Rams are better this year than last, particularly on defense, but a porous o-line and a distinct lack of reliable receivers not named Amendola should prove fatal for St. Louis' offense. Leroy Hill is questionable for the game with a calf injury, but his possible absence is more than made up for by Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold being ruled out for the game. I'm looking forward to seeing how often Bradford gets hit on his blindside by Clemons.For Seattle, the starting lineup has changed once again (what else is new?), with James Carpenter playing at left guard and McQuistan likely sliding over to fill in at right guard for an injured John Moffitt. The news isn't all bad though, as both Doug Baldwin and Breno Giacomini are listed as probable (there was some doubt earlier in the week as to whether Giacomini would be able to play). Rams CB Cortland Finnegan and DEs Chris Long and Robert Quinn will likely cause some problems, but keep an eye out for first round pick ...

The St. Louis Rams scratched some heads when the drafted a kicker out of Missouri Western in the sixth round of last April's NFL Draft.

The St. Louis Rams needed an offensive spark. According to the Fox broadcast of the Rams game with the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams had not scored a touchdown in one hundred offensive plays.
On Sunday, Jeff Fisher used some trickery to find the end zone.
After being stopped near the end of the second quarter on third and goal, Fisher sent his field goal unit out on the field with...
Greg Zuerlein kicked four field goals, including a 58-yarder and a club record 60-yarder, to help the St. Louis Rams to a 19-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Special teams led the way for the Rams (2-2), with a fake field goal turning into a 2-yard touchdown pass from punter Johnny Hekker to Danny Amendola to put St. Louis ahead 10-7 late in the first half.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network expects injured Rams halfback Steven Jackson to participate in Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, though he could be limited.Fantasy Spin:Jackson, hampered by a groin issue in recent weeks, has only totaled 20 carries over his last two games so we'd be very wearing about employing him as anything more than a flex player in Week 4. Daryl Richardson...
The rookie kicker is 8 for 8 on field goals this season, including a 56-yarder last week — 1 yard shy of the franchise record. Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns two weeks ago, but didn’t get the Rams into the end zone in Sunday’s loss at Chicago. Running back Steven Jackson is nursing a groin injury.

Seattle’s struggling offense
Big 4th Down call. Turning point for Seattle’s muted 2nd half performance.
Watch for my breakdown of Seattle’s offensive performance against the NFC West worst St. Louis Rams. I will look for the seminal play that epitomizes the struggles of Seattle’s offense. I’m not so impetuous as to abandon all hope in the current system. However, some...
If you line up all the Rams' wins at the end of the season and held a beauty pageant, this 19-13 grunter over the Seattle Seahawks would rank dead last. But in the standings, all wins look beautiful. With a 2-0 record at home, and a 1-0 mark in the division, Jeff Fisher and his team won't be apologizing to anyone for lack of appearances.
Rams running back Steven Jackson is playing after being listed as questionable. Same for tackle Wayne Hunter, who will start at left tackle in place of the injured Rodger Saffold.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Making the jump from Division II to the NFL has been pretty easy for St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein.
The rookie kicked four field goals, setting a club record with a 58-yarder and then topping it with a 60-yarder, and helped the Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 19-13 on Sunday.
Not only is Zuerlein a perfect 12 for 12 on the year, he also was a perfect decoy...
It’s been on all year Juan…
There are very few workhorses in the NFL these days. Marshawn Lynch is one of them. Lynch has at least 90 total yards in each game and has mixed in 2 games where he went over 100 total yards with a TD.
The Hawks are not going to stop feeding Beast Mode the ball and he won’t stop producing stats for you fantasy team. He doesn’t have the flare of...
ST. LOUIS -- Relying on thunder-footed rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein and a defense which kept the Seahawks out of the end zone after the game's first 4 minutes and 15 seconds, St. Louis matched its win total of 2011 with a 19-13 verdict Sunday at Edward Jones Dome. Zuerlein, a sixth-round draft pick in April out of Missouri Western, drilled field goals of 58, 48, 60 and 24 yards...
Just as the NFL hoped a critical mistake by replacement officials would not swing the balance of a game, the league now has to hope the botched outcome of Mondays Packers-Seahawks game doesnt swing the balance of the standings such that it affects the playoffs.
The Fail Mary as many have called it Monday Russell Wilsons touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the final play of...
There will be a familiar face inside the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday afternoon when the St. Louis Rams host the Seattle Seahawks. Short-lived defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been given special permission to attend the game, permission from the NFL itself which now governs his every move.
This is the first NFL game, the first NFL anything, for Williams since he was exiled...
Sack by sack, I loved the assorted fronts the Seahawks showed on defense in the first half! On any given down, I saw 3, 4, 5, and 6 man fronts.
Sack #1 Seattle started with a 4 man front.
Seattle started with what appeared to be a loose looking 4 man front with K.J. Wright lined up at the LOS over the “B” gap,
The stunt here is that the Wright is disguised...
