(KSDK Sports) -- Rams coach Jeff Fisher agreed with the assessment that defensive tackle Michael Brockers was a difference-maker in last Sunday's win over Houston.
Brockers had seven tackles to go with two sacks and three tackles for loss in the running game.
When asked if this was the second-year player's best game, Fisher said, "This particular game, yes, was his best game to date as a Ram. He was very, very good. Very productive - run game, pass game, effort, pressure. He was clearly the best tackle on the field."
Brockers told the Post-Dispatch, "Any day you have two sacks, a couple of tackles for loss, it's a good day. I think it just happened like that. I did my job. I'm just a soldier in this unit."
*Linebacker Alec Ogletree showed Sunday why the Rams thought he was special when they spent a first-round pick on him in last April's draft.
In addition to a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown against Houston, Ogletree also had 11 tackles, a forced fumble and quarterback pressure.
The touchdown was the longest interception return ever by a rookie linebacker and tied former Tampa Bay linebacker Shelton Quarles for the longest interception by a linebacker.
*Bradford's 13 touchdown passes ranks fifth in the NFL behind only Peyton Manning (22) and Tony Romo, Drew Brees and Philip Rivers, who all have 14.
*Wide receiver Tavon Austin participated in only three offensive plays against Houston, and while acknowledging "it's hard to be patient," he said, "I know my time will come. The big thing was getting the win." Austin leads the team with 24 receptions, but his average is just 6.6 yards per catch.
*Kicker Greg Zuerlein has made all nine of his field-goal attempts this season, but he has yet to have one from 50 or more yards. Last season, Zuerlein was 7-for-13 from that distance.
