Jeff Fisher’s St. Louis Rams avoided a four-game slide by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars at home, 34-20. The magic number of 30 points—including seven from the defense—that I prescribed for St. Louis was met with five minutes, 45 seconds remaining in the game.
The Rams had 24 in the first half.
Like Week 1’s victory over the Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis still has plenty of things to work on. The Rams still draw far too many penalties, especially on special teams. The Week 5 win over Jacksonville was a balanced effort nevertheless.
