After a whirlwind of changes in the offseason, the new era St. Louis Rams are looking to get back on track after a somewhat disappointing 3-5 start in 2012. Five games into the season, the team was 3-2 and looking to stay competitive in the NFC West division. But three straight losses has hindered their hopes as they now continue to fight into their second half.
Both teams having a bye in week 9, the Rams head to San Francisco to take on the divisional powerhouse 49ers this Sunday. Close to making it to the Super Bowl last season, the 49ers are continuing that success this year as they are 6-2 and hold the top spot in the NFC West.
St. Louis is a major underdog in this one, but have to somehow make a statement. A Rams win would not only keep them in the running for the division, but would also give them a fresh start to the second half of the year.
This is what the St. Louis Rams must do in order to accomplish this tough task.
