St. Louis Rams
Organizers behind a proposed stadium near Los Angeles that could become home for the NFL’s San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders announced Saturday they reached an important, early benchmark on the path to construction.
An advisory group appointed by Mayor Kevin Faulconer has decided that the best site for a new stadium for the Chargers is at the site of their current stadium in Mission Valley, not downtown.
The Chargers and Raiders are moving forward on a back-up plan to share a privately financed $1.7 billion stadium in Carson, according to published reports.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon announced deals with a power company and railroad Tuesday that he said represent “concrete progress” in plans to build a riverfront stadium that could help St. Louis remain an NFL city.
An ambitious plan to build a billion-dollar National Football League stadium in the Hollywood Park area generated more debate at a meeting in Inglewood on Wednesday night.
St. Louis upped its bid Friday to either keep the Rams or lure a new NFL team, unveiling plans for a new open-air football stadium on the banks of the Mississippi River, not far from the Gateway Arch.
The St. Louis Rams did not have an awful season in 2014, but a 6-10 record isn’t what they were hoping for. It was a season filled with close losses, wins over big-time teams, and yet another season-ending injury to quarterback Sam Bradford. The Rams have a lot to think about and some good things going forward so 2014 proved a lot.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
Two defensive-minded teams with sub-par quarterbacks produced the lowest-scoring game of the season last night. The Arizona Cardinals improved to 11-3 without scoring a touchdown, winning in St. Louis 12-6.
The Rams have been especially strong, as they are coming off back-to-back shutouts. While three in a row does not look likely, they could very well hold the visitor to less than two touchdowns.
The St. Louis Rams aren’t necessarily out of the playoff race, but one more loss could get them to that point. The Arizona Cardinals have struggled a little since Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending injury. Now, the two NFC West teams are going to battle it out on “Thursday Night Football” and CBS Sports’ Dan Fouts talked about how important the game is for both.
A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
There are lots of lists the 2014 Oakland Raiders would just as well not be part of, but they’ll need a win in December to avoid being the 10th NFL team to lose 15 games in a season.
Tre Mason scored two long touchdowns and Shaun Hill accounted for three TDs in the St. Louis Rams’ 52-0 rout over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
