Even in victory, the sense around St. Louis is that the team still needs a “convincing” win against a higher quality opponent to show they have progressed this season. They will get their chance this Sunday, facing off against the spiraling Houston Texans, who have not fared well against the NFC West so far this year. Naturally, there has been plenty of content to start the week, both recapping the win over the Jaguars and looking forward to our Week 6 matchup. Here is some of the best stuff…
While the St. Louis Rams had their “bad moments,” like the Justin Blackmon untouched-touchdown, they were pretty effective throughout the day against both the run and pass. Nick Wagoner breaks down a number of “key” plays and other observations from Sunday.
Claiming Zac Stacy is the “most talented” back on the St. Louis Rams roster may be a bit premature, but he is certainly the one giving the team a much needed spark in the running game right now. Jeff Fisher has already named Stacy the starter for Week 6 against the Houston Texans, and assuming he continues to perform, would be an obvious “waiver steal” halfway through the fantasy football season.
Ramblin’ Fan has delayed the recapping of Power Rankings until the St. Louis Rams have jumped back to a respectable level in the NFL. However, that doesn’t mean that analysts won’t continue to churn them out. As expected, the Rams did not gain any ground with their win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still, we would prefer the people judging the Rams actually watch the games… there weren’t that many opportunities given up by the defense.
Yesterday, there was plenty of hype in the morning media about Tavon Austin. Austin has spoke very little with the media since being drafted 8th overall by the St. Louis Rams. It appears as though that will not be changing anytime in the near future, with the Rams PR team nixing interview for the young potential-star!
Like any team in the NFL that is ailing after a tough defeat, the Houston Texans will be licking their chops against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, hoping to bounce back from an embarrassing showing against the 49ers. Hopefully, the NFC West can maintain their perfect record against the other Texas team.
