Struggling Rams Defense Hoping to Bounce Back
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It's been a rough couple of weeks for St. Louis' defense, and the Rams know it, too.
St. Louis has dropped three straight games, yielding 30 points against Green Bay and 45 against New England in its last two losses before its bye week. The Rams' points allowed average jumped nearly five points to 20th in the league, from 18.5 and fifth-best before playing the Packers. The overall defense dropped from seventh-best to tied for 14th.
Assistant coach Dave McGinnis says: "What has happened the last two weeks, everyone that is associated with this defense, players and coaches knows it's totally unacceptable."
The Rams are at San Francisco on Sunday.
