The St. Louis Rams scored their first touchdown of the game in the third quarter. They trail the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 30-7.
Baltimore came out swinging. Rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith totaled more than 130 yards and three touchdowns, including a 74-yard touchdown pass. On defense, the Ravens were their usual aggressive selves. They kept quarterback Sam Bradford on his toes, locking down his receivers and harassing him behind the line of scrimmage.
Bradford finished the first half with just 17 yards passing and one interception. On the Rams only scoring drive so far, he added more than 80 yards to his total, finding Brandon Gibson at the back of the end zone for a 34-yard touchdown pass.
The 23-point deficit represents a nearly insurmountable hurdle as the Ravens offense has been able to dial up big plays when they need them, including a 53-yard run from Ray Rice. Rice has 80 yards on the day on just seven carries.
