The St. Louis Rams were ranked 15th by the ESPN NFL Power Rankings. Here is the comment from ESPN:
With upgrades at tackle, tight end and hopefully wide receiver, how long is Sam Bradford’s leash? Bradford has never finished a season above 21st in Total QBR.
Unfortunately, the Rams are still way behind the other 2 NFC West in the power rankings. The Seattle Seahawks are ranked #1 in the ESPN power rankings and the 49ers are ranked 3rd. Although the Rams aren’t viewed favorably by the sports media despite the 4-1-1 record against the NFC West, the real season begins on Sunday. The opponent the Rams will play on Sunday will be the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have added John Abraham and Carson Palmer to their roster to try to stay competitive in a tough NFC West. Game time will be at 3:25pm at the Edward Jones Dome.
