Bradford hopes his dubious sack streak gets snapped
By STEVE KORTE
St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was unaware of his dubious streak.
Bradford has been sacked in 30 straight games, the longest current streak in the NFL.
"Actually, I didn't know that," Bradford said. "That's great."
Sarcasm aside, Bradford has played only one game in his three seasons in the NFL where he wasn't sacked at least once. That was a 34-17 loss to Atlanta in Week 11 of his rookie season in 2010.
Bradford said there's a number of components beyond just pass blocking that go into playing a sack-free game.
"If you don't sacked get in a game, that obviously meant that the protection was good, the ball got out, guys on the outside won," Bradford said. "It's a team effort to eliminate sacks. That's something we work towards each week.
"If we could play these next two games without sacks, it would really be awesome."
All told, Bradford has been sacked 105 times in 40 NFL games. He's been sacked 35 times this season, which ties him with Chicago's Jay Cutler for the fifth most among NFL quarterbacks.
"That's always been the goal," Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold said of keeping Bradford's jersey clean. "It's not just the line, but everybody collectively protecting the ball. It's such a tough job. You want to have a clean slate one game, but it's so tough."
It ended today no sacks!!!!!
