The St. Louis Rams defense has been much-improved this season and the NFL is taking notice. Starting linebacker London Fletcher was named the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week yesterday after his performance in that 30-26 win over San Francisco. Fletcher finished that game with a career-high 20 tackles. The Rams defense as a whole held San Francisco to 232 total yards. This is the second time in Fletcher’s four-year NFL career that he has earned POW honors.
