Rams Stun the Broncos In St. Louis: Autopsy of an Upset

Rams Stun the Broncos In St. Louis: Autopsy of an Upset

The St. Louis Rams did it again. In Week 7 they battled the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks at home and sent the seven point favorites back to Seattle with a 28-26 loss. In Week 9 the Rams travelled to San Francisco to take on the 10.5-point favorite 49ers and returned with a hard-fought 13-10 victory.

Sunday St. Louis hosted the other Super Bowl XLVIII participant and the No. 1 team in the Quality Stats Power Rankings, the Denver Broncos.
