ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Marshall Faulk still knows how to get into the end zone, zooming past Hall of Famers Walter Payton and Jim Brown on the career touchdown list.
There's nothing the coach can do to shake the Vikings up. Right now, it all comes down to the players. They need someone to step up in a leadership capacity on both sides of the ball and forcefully let it be known that they need to play better. The Vikings' offense played poorly today in a game that everyone knew would be a shootout. That's unacceptable, and the end result was an embarrassing loss to the Rams.
Question on the Rams: So is a healthy Faulk still one of the two or three best backs in the league?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Holt has 25 career 100-yard receiving games, tying Jerry Rice for the most in the first five seasons. He leads the NFL with 92 catches for 1,387 yards and Moss is second with 82 catches for 1,239 yards. ... Wilkins, who entered the game with an NFL-leading 111 points, is 28-for-30 on the season on field goals and 2-for-2 from 50 and beyond. ... The Rams' point total is their highest since a 48-14 victory Nov. 11, 2001, at home against the Panthers.
