ST. LOUIS (AP) - Looking for a sure thing on offense three games into the Jeff Fisher era with the St. Louis Rams? It might be rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein, who is 8 for 8 and made a 56-yarder last week, just 1 yard shy of the franchise record.
Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns in Week 2, but didn't get the Rams into the end zone last week. Steven Jackson is nursing a groin injury. The offensive line that had been keeping Bradford fairly clean surrendered six sacks on Sunday.
Zuerlein, a sixth-round pick out of Division II Missouri Western, has been on the money all three games. He's been effective on kickoffs, too, with special teams limiting opponents to a 17.4-yard average.
