How do you get a win in the NFL with only 121 yards of total offense? It’s not an easy question to answer. But in a nutshell, you need great defense, some turnovers, a solid kicker and maybe a little luck. At least that was the Ram’s recipe. Despite a less than stellar offensive output they topped the Ravens 33-22. Neither team could hold on to the ball as the Rams and Ravens accounted for eleven turnovers. The Ravens had seven of them. Rams’ cornerback Jarametrius Butler grabbed two interceptions and two more turnovers came in the form of Jamal Lewis fumbles. The Rams needed almost every one of the Ravens miscues because Marc Bulger had his worst day as a pro. Bulger was 13-26 for 112 yards and two interceptions. Marshall Faulk saw action after missing five games, but his return was uneventful, rushing for 48 yards. But his outing did yield some positive outcomes. He scored two touchdowns on runs of one and five yards. The Rams trailed 22-21 in the fourth quarter, but were lifted by four field goals from Jeff Wilkins in the final fifteen minutes. Those were the only points the rest of the way. The Rams are 6-3 and tied with the Seahawks for first in the NFC West.
