Rams TE Lance Kendricks, on how they salvage this season: "It feels like a broken record. We just gotta play with pride. We gotta have a sense of pride and heart. There's flashes of it, last week in the first half of the game. We just take turns doing something wrong. If we're all on the same page, at the same time, consistently, we're a very good team."
