ST. LOUIS (AP) -- In veteran wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the St. Louis Rams have added a pair of sure hands to a receiving corps that has been plagued by dropped passes this season and an offense than barely scores.

The winless Rams (0-5) are underdogs for Sunday's game at Dallas (2-3) and likely to be one at home the following week against New Orleans.

The offense under new coordinator Josh McDaniels has yet to click but they now have Lloyd following a trade with Denver.

The Rams hope Lloyd will jumpstart their offense. St. Louis has scored just 49 points, lowest in the NFL. In last weekend's loss at Green Bay, the Packers held St. Louis to a field goal despite gaining 424 yards.
