Schedule delivers rough two-week stretch
By Mike Sando
The St. Louis Rams face enough challenges as it is. They could do without a difficult two-week stretch featuring unfavorable scheduling.
- Week 13 sends the Rams to the West Coast for a game against a San Francisco 49ers team coming off a 10-day break. The 49ers last played on a Thursday night.
- Week 14 sends the Rams to the West coast for a game against a Seattle Seahawks team coming off an 11-day break. Seattle played Thursday night.
The Rams also face a slightly shorter week when they play a Saturday game at Pittsburgh in Week 16. But the Steelers will have it tough in some ways, too. They'll be coming off a Monday night road game against the 49ers. They'll return to Pittsburgh early Tuesday morning, then play four days later.
