(FootballSTL) -- That was the Rams team we expected in 2013. So many things went right including great red zone play on both sides of the ball and finishing plus four in turnovers.
My favorite sequence came after Chris Givens failed to haul in a pass that would have produced an 80 yard touchdown. The Rams shook it off and very calmly and methodically marched 80 yards for a touchdown anyway.
Credit Jeff Fisher for taking an even handed approach following those awful losses to Dallas and San Fran. He didn’t beat his team into the ground. He made his points and then encouraged his team. His team has certainly responded.
This win caps one of the great sports weekends in St. Louis history.
