GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams used to be the most stylish team in the NFL. Now they're winning ugly -- to the tune of a surprising 4-1 start.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Rams overcame numerous penalties (10 total) on both offense and defense. Without the services of CB Fakhir Brown, the Rams were vulnerable in the secondary.
But with a balanced attack on offense, led by Marc Bulger (above), who hasn't thrown an interception all season, the Rams secured the win and improved to 4-1.
McCarthy said Packers offensive lineman Jason Spitz was taken to the hospital for tests after he was kicked in the stomach and left the game in the third quarter. ... Rams kicker Jeff Wilkins had three field goals, all in the second half. ... Rams running back Steven Jackson had 98 yards on 23 carries.
