2010 Rams NFL Preseason Wrapup Stuck

The Rams traveled up to Cleveland for their second preseason contest, and put together a complete performance against the Browns. The running game was again a strength, as Steven Jackson was able to cut swiftly through the Browns defense. Meanwhile, the Rams defense also showed some good signs, holding the Browns to a poor 3rd down percentage, forcing them to throw the ball, and keeping them from reaching the endzone. And for what it's worth in the preseason, the Rams are 2-0.

For their third preseason game, the Rams went up to New England for a 2001 Super Bowl rematch. It is strange to see how the fortunes of both teams has changed in that time, with the Patriots winning two more Super Bowls since, and a chance at a third, while the Rams have struggled for the past 5 years. That seemed to hold true in this game as well, for while the Rams defense was able to hold a potent Patriots attack, the offense struggled to put much of anything together. The running attack was held to under 100 total yards and the Rams couldn't put a TD up on the board. Meanwhile, Sam Bradford has yet to really live up to the first overall pick status, as he has yet to throw a TD this preseason. Hopefully for Rams fans he will pick up his game when it actually matters.

In their final preseason contest, the Rams managed to squeek out a win against a tough Ravens team at home. Sam Bradford finally came up with a passing TD, and the running game was a major strength for the offense as they pulled out this win. While the defense's performance wasn't the best, they do deserve credit for keeping the Ravens under 17 points, considering the rave reviews this offense had gotten during the offseason. And overall, the Rams end this preseason with a 3-1 record, and a pretty good showing against three teams with playoff aspirations in the Vikings, Patriots, and Ravens. There are clearly things that the Rams need to improve on, such as balance on offense and a higher 3rd down completion rate, but there is hope that the success in the preseason just may translate into wins in the regular season.
