Ugly Game

The Rams played the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Cleveland. The good thing is the Rams won the game 13-12. That is about the only good thing about this game.

The Rams had players getting hurt left and right. It seemed like a Ram player was getting hurt on every series whether it was on offense or defense. Five Rams players went out for the game.

CB Al Harris and TE Michael Hoomanawanui both suffered serious knee injuries. Their status will be known later this week. The Rams secondary is looking like a M*A*S*H unit. The Rams lost two starters for the season already and are looking to lose a few more.

At one point I was wondering if the Rams coaching staff was going to go into the stands and have to ask one of the beer vendors if they could play in the secondary. It’s that serious Rams fans. Even Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson got nicked up, but they were able to stay in the game.

On the plus side the Rams defense held the Brown’s inept offense to just 4 field goals. The Brown’s should have had a fifth field goal, but the snap was botched and Dawson missed a 22 yard chip shot with 2:13 left in the game. The Rams defense held the Browns to 126 yards rushing and Colt McCoy to 209 yards passing. The Rams defense had two sacks and one fumble recovery.

That’s about all I can say about this game. There was nothing spectacular about this game. It was hard to watch. The Rams host the Seattle Seahawks in St. Louis next week, I hope that doesn’t  turn into another ugly game.
