(FootballStL) -- On his way into the press room, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford limped in as if he had just been hit...eleven times to be exact. The Baltimore Ravens were credited with 11 quarterback hits in the 37-7 victory over the Rams. Five of those hits were sacks.
Bradford has been sacked 11 times this season which is tied for 4th in the NFL.
Bradford seemed frustrated when he was asked if he felt more beat up after Sunday's game than in recent weeks.
“I took probably more hits tonight than I have in a while, so I probably am a little more beat up than I have been the first two games,” Bradford said.
Bradford also suffered a sprained toe on Sunday, but the Rams don’t expect him to miss any time.
Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo says the way to keep Bradford from being hit is simple.
““Block them,” Spagnuolo said. “I don’t know if Baltimore did some different things because pass protections in this league are all pretty much the same.”
