ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have made great strides this season, entering the second half at 4-4. They've yet to be successful on the road.
They'll get a chance to try again Sunday, playing at NFC West rival San Francisco.
The Rams have won four of their past six to join the slumping Seattle Seahawks atop the NFC West. But all four wins have been at home.
St. Louis hasn't won a road game since last Nov. 1 at Detroit, a 17-10 victory that turned out to be their only win of the 2009 season. St. Louis won just one road game in 2008, 19-17 at Washington.
The Rams will need to start winning road games soon if they hope to stay in playoff contention. Five of their final eight games are away from the Edward Jones Dome.
