BradfordThat will not happen as much if Sam Bradford continues on his current trajectory.
With Bradford this season, the Rams already have five such plays, leaving them tied for third among NFL teams behind the Chicago Bears (7) and Indianapolis Colts (6), according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The Rams lost projected starting receiver Donnie Avery for the season before Week 1. Another starter, Laurent Robinson, has missed time. Brandon Gibson started in Week 3 after not even being active the first two weeks. Mark Clayton, acquired from Baltimore less than a week before the regular-season opener, already has 17 catches (he had 34 last season in 14 games, including 12 as a starter).
The difference this season? Bradford, obviously.
