St. Louis Rams: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#22)

As I said in the Cardinals’ write up, the Rams and Cardinals are more evenly matched than maybe any teams in the NFL and that if they were to play in Arizona, the Cardinals would win by a field goal. Sam Bradford looks much improved thanks to an improved receiving corps, led by Jared Cook, completing 27 of 38 yards for 299 yards, 2 touchdowns, and pick. However, their secondary remains very vulnerable. They might have the worst pair of starting safeties in the NFL and Cortland Finnegan continues to not be the player they thought they were signing last off-season, being torched to the tune of 6 catches for 96 yards and a touchdown on 7 attempts. They’ll have a hard time making the playoffs in the loaded NFC.
