The Rams are on a roll.
Wow. Its been a long time since I could say that.
St. Louis turned in its best performance of the year in Week 4, dominating the Seahawks en route to a 20-3 victory. The Rams now stand at 2-2 and the whispers have begun (Could the Rams really challenge for the NFC West title this year?).
Potentially premature crowing aside, this Rams team is starting to develop an identity.
Steven Jackson is the inspirational leader, giving everything he has each Sunday.
Sam Bradford is the emerging star, silencing critics and gaining fans.
The defense, which has allowed only 13 points per game (and only two field goals in the last six quarters) is beginning to resemble a "Steve Spagnuolo defense." While they are still in the bottom third of the league in yards allowed, they are in the top 10 in third down percentage allowed, red zone defense and points allowed.
What this team does not have yet is a road victory, so it would stand to reason that a game at the Rams' "dome away from home" in Detroit would be just what they need, right?
I'm not so sure.
To be perfectly honest, the Lions worry me.
That said, here's how I think the Rams will get another "W" in Week 5.
