Rams Report Card: Defense, Coaches Flunk

Here are the grades for the St. Louis Rams after their gruesome 45-7 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday in London: QUARTERBACK: Sam Bradford hurled a 50-yard touchdown strike to rookie receiver Chris Givens to give the Rams a very short-lived 7-0 lead. He was generally accurate otherwise while completing 22 of 30 passes for 205 yards. He showed some toughness by coming back after a nasty body plant into the turf. But the Rams converted just three of nine third-down plays. With the game out of hand, Bradford lofted an interception while getting sandwiched by two Patriots in the pocket. Back-up Kellen Clemens came in to hit rookie Brian Quick for a 39-yard strike . . . before contributing a red zone pick of his own. Mind you, this was a depleted Patriots secondary the Rams were trying to attack via the air.
