The St. Louis Rams went on the road in Week 16 and defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 28-17. 

Sam Bradford struggled for most of the game, completing less than half his passes, but he threw two crucial touchdown strikes in the third quarter to break the game open for the Rams—one of which was an 80-yard play to tight end Lance Kendricks.

Steven Jackson pounded away at the Buccaneers' defensive front, totaling 81 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries.

But the biggest play of the game for the Rams came in the second quarter when Janoris Jenkins intercepted Josh Freeman and ran it back 41 yards for his fourth touchdown on an interception in 2012. 

Freeman ended the contest with 371 yards passing, but he threw four interceptions and one touchdown—his second game in a row with four picks.

Mike Williams caught seven passes for 132 yards and a touchdown in defeat, and Vincent Jackson also hauled in seven passes for 108 yards.

The Rams improved to 7-7-1 on the season and will travel to face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17, while the Buccaneers fell to 6-9 and will hit the road to face the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
