Rams making unexpected statement

By Mike Sando

When the Rams convened for training camp under new head coach Steve Spagnuolo, they never imagined rookie Keith Null would be throwing touchdown passes -- OK, one touchdown pass -- to return specialist Danny Amendola in Week 15.

It happened Sunday, helping the Rams take a 10-6 lead over the Texans at the Edward Jones Dome. This would be a colossal upset if the Rams could find a way to win the game. It would be a huge victory for the organization, too, given how this season has spiraled downward.

The Rams have generally played hard for Spagnuolo, but every team has a breaking point. The Rams seemed to reach theirs in recent weeks. Beating the Texans would give the Rams something to feel good about for a change.
