ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis defense is off to a very poor start, even subtracting the three touchdowns the Rams have surrendered on offense.
The Rams are next-to-last in total defense and dead last against the run, allowing 174 yards per game. The Baltimore Ravens set a franchise record with 553 yards against them on Sunday and they've allowed 96 points, second-most in the NFL.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo's reputation as a defensive whiz has taken quite a hit. His response: Work harder, and expect the same from the players.
Spagnuolo says the system is sound. He says there won't be any changes in approach or personnel this weekend when the Rams (0-3) host the Washington Redskins (2-1).
