ST. LOUIS —
Now, the Rams want to do it again this week on the road at Houston. The Texans boast the No. 1 defense in the NFL but rank 27th against the run. Houston allows 126 yards rushing a game.
St. Louis had a season-best time of possession of 35 minutes, 19 seconds against Jacksonville. Running the ball helped boost that figure, Bradford said.
Bradford threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns for a 105.3 passer rating in the win over Jacksonville. He attributed success with the running game for that.
“We knew going into last week that after the previous two weeks where we had become very one dimensional that it was going to be important for us to establish the run game and stay balanced throughout the game,” Bradford said. “I think the guys up front did a great job opening holes. All the running backs who came in ran extremely hard, and I think that balance really helped maintain throughout four quarters.”
