Sam Bradford struggled through much of the game in Buffalo on Sunday. But when it mattered most, the Rams’ offense found a way to get the job done.
St. Louis marched down the field on a 14-play, 84-yard drive that culminated with a 13-yard touchdown pass from Bradford to Brandon Gibson with less than a minute to play, and the Rams beat the Bills 15-12. The Rams were added by the Bills dropping several Bradford passes that could have been intercepted — it was that kind of sloppy game for Buffalo.
In addition to losing the game, the Bills lost running back Fred Jackson, who was carted off late in the game with a right leg injury. Although there was no official word on Jackson’s status, it didn’t look good.
And in general, this game didn’t look good. Neither of these teams is heading toward the playoffs, but at least the Rams are continuing to play hard for 60 minutes, every Sunday. That paid off on this Sunday in Buffalo.
