The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Steven Jackson scored his 52nd career rushing touchdown, leaving him four shy of Eric Dickerson's franchise record. Jackson also moved past Henry Ellard on the Rams' career list for all-purpose yardage. His 50-yard reception was a career long.
Brandon Lloyd averaged 16.4 yards per reception. His longest gain covered 37 yards.
Rookie tight end Lance Kendricks had a 26-yard reception early in the game.
Jerious Norwood's 47-yard kickoff return was a season long for the Rams.
The Rams' defense kept the team in the game through three quarters.
Looking ahead: The Rams return home to face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15.
