The facts: The Rams fell to 0-6 with a 23-20 overtime loss to the Jaguars in Week 6.
The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Rookie James Laurinaitis picked off a pass -- again.
Marc Bulger started quickly, completing all five passes during a nine-play, 73-yard touchdown drive to open the game.
Josh Brown made both field-goal tries after a rough start to the season. He hit from 52 yards before making the tying 27-yarder to force overtime.
Leonard Little showed the Rams have not quit despite their frustrating start. To the contrary, his performance in fighting through strep throat should inspire teammates.
Bulger made it through a full game without aggravating his shoulder injury.
Donnie Avery continued to make strides before suffering a hip injury.
Steven Jackson ran exceptionally hard again, including as a receiver. And he appeared to hold up physically, a problem at this time last season.
Linebacker Paris Lenon seemed more active, finishing with seven tackles -- all in the second half.
The Rams finished with eight pass breakups and 12 quarterback hits, including two hits apiece from Laurinaitis and Little. Chris Long had one.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo has kept his composure and remained consistent, important during tough times. He appears unflappable.
Looking ahead: The Rams face the Colts at home in Week 7.
