Rams snap three-game losing streak against winless Jaguars

Rams, Wash. U. need effective running game to taste victory

During the St. Louis Rams’ 35-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, the team honored Marshall Faulk for his contributions to the franchise, and vintage Eric Dickerson jerseys dotted the Edward Jones Dome crowd.
