Green-Ellis, Faulk Lead Patriots Over Rams 23-16

The Patriots seem to just get better as the weeks go by, but they did have a tough time with the 2-4 St. Louis Rams. The Rams were coming off a huge win against the Cowboys, and looked poised for a third straight win. It was a close game throughout, and the Rams were driving at the end of the fourth quarter down 23-16 when QB Marc Bulger tossed an interception to Deltha O’Neal.

Matt Cassel threw two interceptions (though both were not his fault) and a touchdown as part of his career-high 267 passing yards. Kevin Faulk led the Pats with 60 yards rushing on 13 carries and had the go-ahead touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter. BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored the other touchdown for the Patriots, on a two-yard run in the first quarter.

Bulger threw for 301 yards and a long touchdown to Donnie Avery in the first half, but for the most part he was held in check. The Pats played their classic bend-but-don’t-break defense, and it was good enough for the victory. More to come from Jeff’s Verdict.
