St. Louis looked like one of the more disappointing teams in the NFL at midseason, lagging at 3-6 and with quarterback Sam Bradford out for the year.
But behind some surprisingly solid play from quarterback Kellen Clemens, the Rams have gone 4-2 since — including dominant wins over Indianapolis and New Orleans at home — and could finish 8-8, which would be their first non-losing season since also going 8-8 in 2006.
The Rams feature a rugged defensive front seven that has produced 49 sacks and limited opponents to 102.3 yards rushing, seventh-best in the NFL.
