Broncos come up short in 4th as Sam Bradford's big game lifts Rams
DENVER -- Busted one day, beaten the next.By the time the Denver Broncos' 20-point fourth-quarter rally fell short in a 36-33 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, Invesco Field was mostly empty, and dark storm clouds hung over both the city and its tarnished football franchise.
• Sam Bradford threw for 308 yards and three TDs with no interceptions. The last rookie to put up that line in a game was Marc Bulger in 2002 for the Rams.
• The Rams have five wins after recording a total of six in their previous three seasons combined.
• Brandon Lloyd had two TD catches, bringing his season total to nine. He had seven in the previous five seasons combined.
• Since the AFL-NFL merger, Bradford is the only rookie to put up his stat line in a road win.
