Rams Defeat Patriots 36-35

View Comments

[photogallerylink id=40864 align=right]Sam Bradford passed his first test as a starting quarterback in the NFL.

And the player who ended the game at that position for the Rams, Keith Null, directed a drive that set up Josh Brown’s 37-yard field goal on the final play that gave St. Louis a 36-35 exhibition win over the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

Bradford, the top pick in this year’s draft, was poised and precise in playing the first half. He went 15 for 22 for 189 yards after struggling as a backup in his first two games. But Tom Brady threw touchdown passes on three consecutive drives and the Patriots (2-1) turned a 27-14 deficit into a 35-27 lead.

St. Louis (2-1) rallied for a 2-yard touchdown run by Keith Toston and a game-winning field goal.
