Strong running game helps Rams to 24-14 halftime lead

In an entertaining and sometimes feisty first half on Sunday afternoon, the Rams’ offense produced, putting together three TD drives and putting host St. Louis up 24-14 vs. Chicago.

The Rams’ ground game was outstanding, racking up 167 yards on just 16 carries. Receiver Tavon Austin set the tone with a 65-yard TD run on the Rams’ first drive. Fellow rookie Zac Stacy also made a big impact, racking up 87 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.

The Bears’ offense moved the ball well, too, with quarterback Josh McCown completing 16-of-21 passes for 143 yards. McCown threw TD passes to tight end Martellus Bennett (seven yards) and wideout Brandon Marshall (three yards) in the first two quarters.

The Bears (6-4) are tied with the Lions for the NFC North lead. They are also tied from a record standpoint for the first wild-card spot in the conference.

    Like I said the other day, is it just me or are the Rams playing better with Clemens at QB?

    Bradford was actually having a pretty good year. It’s the youngest team in the league- they just need time to get on the same page. Plus, Shottenheimer is FINALLY using Tavon Austin correctly…

    The Austin TD run was an absolute thing of beauty. One of the most creative play calls I’ve seen all year. Pulling the TE from the left while moving the whole defense to the other half of the field. Anytime Austin has one guy to outrun it’s a TD.
