|QB Blames Mental Mistakes For Offensive Woes
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- With or without Sam Bradford behind center, the St. Louis Rams can't score.
Bradford believes mental letdowns are to blame.
A week after the Rams (1-7) put it all together for the first time in a 31-21 upset over the Saints, they reverted to form. With Bradford back after missing two games with a high left ankle sprain, St. Louis managed three field goals and lost in overtime to Arizona.
That despite 383 total yards and Steven Jackson earning his second straight 100-yard rushing day. The Rams are next to last in the NFL with a 12.5-point average and only eight offensive touchdowns. The offense has 500 penalty yards, third most in the NFC.
