For the St. Louis Rams, a win tomorrow at the Dome is not out of the question, but against the undefeated Indianapolis Colts, it certainly will not be easy. This will be the first meeting between these two teams since 2005, and the first in St. Louis since 2001.
For a while last Sunday at Jacksonville, it looked as if the Rams were going to break their 16 game losing streak, the longest in the NFL, as they fought back late to tie the game late in the fourth quarter. But, overtime did not favor them and the streak goes on.
The Colts are coming off a bye week, and a rested Peyton Manning may not be what the Rams need to see. Through five games this season, Manning has thrown for 1645 yards and 12 touchdowns.
If the Rams have any hope of beating the Colts, the offense will have to continue to improve what they started last Sunday. Running back Stephen Jackson had 128 total yards of offense. Quarterback Marc Bulger, making his first start since his injury, threw for 213 yards and a touchdown.
Rams receiver Donnie Avery, who was injured last week against the Jaguars, is listed as probable, but did participate in practice yesterday.
Colts safety Bob Sanders, who has not played all season, is expected to make his debut tomorrow.
Kick off is set for noon tomorrow.
