The St. Louis Rams have maintained for some time that Billy Bajema can be more than simply a blocking tight end.
Bajema has occasionally proved it, but he's never enjoyed the sort of game he's putting together in Denver. Bajema has caught his second touchdown pass of the game -- and the second of his career -- to give the Rams a 20-13 lead. Fellow tight end Mike Hoomanwanui also has a scoring grab, his second in as many weeks.
The Rams have made too much progress this season to go winless on the road, in my view. But they still have to prove they can close out an opponent away from the Edward Jones Dome. They've been close before -- at Oakland (16-14), at Tampa Bay (18-7), at San Francisco (23-20 in overtime). Is this the week?
