Almost a Win

The St. Louis Rams almost pulled one out on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Rams ended up losing again 20-13. The Rams defense has been suspect all year long, especially against the run. 

With playoff aspirations, the Bengals came to St. Louis hoping the Rams would roll over. The Rams defense had a good game. They held the Bengals to just three points in the first half and actually lead at halftime 6-3. They let the Bengals get the best of them in the second half. The Rams did hold the Bengals to 283 total yards. The Bengals rookie sensation QB Andy Dalton to 15 of 26 for 179 yards,  an interception and no TD’s. 

The Rams also held the Bengals to only 110 yards on the ground. The Rams defense did their job, again they did it with smoke and mirrors.

Injuries have been a nightmare for this team. With the season winding down it will be an interesting off season for the Rams. 

The Rams have Pittsburgh this week. Pittsburgh got beat up by the 49er’s on Monday and they will be mad. They need to win for a better position in the playoffs. An almost win for the Rams does not look promising.
