Without Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts offense was nearly punchless on Saturday night as the St. Louis Rams rolled to victory, 33-10. Sam Bradford started for the Rams, engineering three scoring drives -- two touchdowns and a field goal -- in four possessions, giving St. Louis all the cushion it needed in the win.
Bradford finished the day 7-12 for 45 yards and a touchdown, coming on a six-yard strike to Lance Kendricks in the first quarter. Kendricks led the Rams' receivers with five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown on the night. Keith Tolston added 11 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown, with Cadillac Williams added another 40 yards and a score on the ground for the Rams.
Dan Orlovsky took the bulk of the snaps at quarterback for the Colts, completing just four of 10 passes for 111 yards, one touchdown and an interception. The Colts lone score came on a 44-yard strike from Orlovsky to Taj Smith. Curtis Painter completed three of six passes for 55 yards and an interception in relief.
