Rams score back-to-back touchdowns in 6 seconds

Scott Halleran

St. Louis has had a hard time scoring touchdowns and winning football games in the last decade, but on Sunday they did both. Actually, they scored touchdowns quicker than you'll usually see in the NFL.

The St. Louis Rams improved to 3-3 on Sunday with a 38-13 win over the Houston Texans, but they also did something rarely seen in the NFL. Up 17-6 in the third quarter, Sam Bradford hit Brian Quick for a 4-yard touchdown pass. That helped the Rams pull away, but they would soon be blowing the Texans out.

Just six seconds of game clock later, Texans kick returner Keshawn Martin fumbled the ensuing kickoff and St. Louis linebacker Daren Bates returned it 11 yards for a touchdown. When's the last time a team scored two touchdowns so quick?

Not something that happens very often, as you can imagine. In the last 10 years of the Rams football, even rarer.
