ST. LOUIS -- A pair of Minnesota defensive backs just came through with some skillful plays to save a touchdown on another St. Louis drive that turned up nothing in the red zone.
(That makes three scoreless trips inside the 10-yard line, if you’re a Rams fan and are keeping track.)
- Safety Tyrell Johnson made a diving deflection of a deep pass intended for receiver Keenan Burton, who was wide open streaking down the left side of the field.
- Nickelback Benny Sapp knocked down a pass in the end zone intended for receiver Donnie Avery.
- Johnson intercepted Kyle Boller’s fourth-down pass in the end zone, ending the threat and preserving Minnesota’s 24-3 lead.
