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.
