Dry spells

Three-game scoring droughts in "St. Louis" Rams history that are worse than the
current 32-point dry spell:

1998 — 25 points

Oct. 18 L 0-14 at Miami

Oct. 25 L 10-28 vs. San Fran.

Nov. 1 L 15-37 at Atlanta

The skinny — QB Tony Banks skips the team flight home following the
disheartening shutout loss in Miami. The offense apparently stays with him.

1995 — 29 points

Oct. 22 L 10-44 vs. San Fran.

Oct. 29 L 9-20 at Philadelphia

Nov. 5 L 10-19 at New Orleans

The skinny — After a 5-1 start in their inaugural year in St. Louis, the Rams
go into a funk after a crushing loss to the ***** in the "Same Old Sorry
(Bleep) Rams" game.

2002 — 30 points

Nov. 24 L 17-20 at Washington

Dec. 1 L 3-10 at Philadelphia

Dec. 8 L 10-49 at Kansas City

The skinny — Kurt Warner suffers a broken hand in the loss to Washington, but
plays (badly) with it in the loss to Philadelphia, fueling the first
"Brenda-gate" controversy.

2004 — 30 points

Dec. 5 W 16-6 vs. San Fran.

Dec. 12 L 7-20 at Carolina

Dec. 19 L 7-31 at Arizona

The skinny — Chris Chandler replaces the injured Marc Bulger against the
*****, throws 6 INTs at Carolina, then implodes against Arizona, incurring the
wrath of "Mad" Mike Martz.
