Change in the Wind?

What a difference the last three weeks make. The Rams have beat the Redskins, Cowboys and should have beat New England on Sunday in Foxboro.

I had the pleasure of going to see the Rams play the Cowboys. The Rams looked great. They have developed a pass rush and took Marion Barber completely out of the game. I had expected the game to be close to 34-14, but in the Cowboy's favor.

In Sunday's game I was hoping the Rams would have a chance against the Brayless Patriots. It was close for sure.

The Rams played them tough the entire game and unfortunately lost on a Bulger interception with little time left.

With Steven Jackson unable to go with a leg injury, the Rams defense had to try and step up and control the game. The Rams actually had more total yards and held the Patriots to under 400 yards. That is a solid effort.

With their starting and back up running backs the Rams held them to under 100 yards rushing. It's hard for me to remember the last time the Rams held any team to under 100 yards rushing.

You can see that the Rams like to play for Haslett.

Nobody in the NFC West is stepping up to take control of the division. So maybe change is in the wind and the Rams can make a run at it.
