Rams End Slump, Beat Winless Jaguars 34-20
ST. LOUIS - Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes and Matt Giordano's 82-yard interception return was one of several big plays from the St. Louis Rams' defense in a 34-20 victory Sunday that kept the Jacksonville Jaguars winless.
Austin Pettis' 31-yard TD catch with 5:45 to go was his second of the day and put the Rams (2-3) up by two scores. St. Louis, which had trailed by double digits in every game, established control with a 17-point second quarter after Jacksonville (0-5) had a pair of early leads.
Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert injured his left hamstring in the third quarter. Rookie left tackle Luke Joeckel was carted off with a right ankle injury in the first.
