For the 0-5 St. Louis Rams, maybe their first ever trip to Jacksonville, Florida is just what they need as they go after their first win of the season against the 2-3 Jaguars. St. Louis will also be trying to put a stop to their 15 game losing streak, which is the longest in the NFL.
The Rams have played the Jaguars just two other times in franchise history, and beat them in 1996 and also in 2005.
The other interesting note about this game, this will be the first meeting of Torry Holt against his former team. Holt spent 10 years with the Rams before being released in the offseason. Last week against the Seahawks, Holt caught seven passes for 95 yards.
The Rams are coming off a great and terrible game as they lost to Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings, 38-10 last Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome. Yet, the game was the best offensive performance of the season for the Rams as they had 27 first downs and nearly 400 yards of offense.
On the other side, the Jaguars were dismantled on the road last Sunday at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks, 41-0.
Marc Bulger will be making his return to the starting lineup after missing some time due to a shoulder injury. He did come in last Sunday after Kyle Boller sufferend a concussion. Bulger was 1-7 with a touchdown pass.
Despite the record of the Rams, Stephen Jackson is having another good season. He has rushed for 451 yards in five games. He is currently fourth in the league in rushing.
The Rams kick off against the Jaguars at noon Sunday.
