Can you hear it? In the background. It's the sound of St. Louis Rams fans screaming in agony as they watch their team's season slip away.

Three wins in the season's first five games. Hope. Optimism. Playoffs, dare we ask?

Since then, four big Ls and a frustratingly awkward tie.

Hope? Gone. Optimism? Gone.

Remember that only once since 2006 have the Rams ended a season with more than three wins.

The Rams need a win. They need a win badly. Meet the only other team in the NFL with a longer win-less streak (six games): the Arizona Cardinals.

This is the Rams' season. Here are the seven keys to the game for the Rams.
