Those two plays were preceded by a 98-yard punt...

Sam Bradford’s injury to hurt Rams; help Zac Stacy?

Things were looking good for Sam Bradford heading into the season. The Rams QB had a solid start to 2013 before succumbing to an ACL injury and many (myself among them) believed that he was ready to make an impact this year.
