Divisional Round After a first round bye, the St. Louis Rams were eager to get there playoff journey underway in the divisional round against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams came into the game with one thing on their minds, dont turn the ball over. The run game was prevalent as both Steven Jackson and the Duo of Ward/James had huge days with a combined total of 605 yards rushing and 6 TDs. The Bucs got the ball first and scored easily on big runs and timely passes but the Rams answered quickly with a Sjax TD from 28 yards out. Three plays into the next drive, Freeman found FB Askew deep and he broke a tackle and went 47 yards for the score. The Rams were noticeable worried that their defense did not show up for this game but they kept plugging with Jackson. After many successful run plays, the rams caught the bucs in a bad coverage and scored with a PA pass to TE McMichael. Only a min later, the bucs went up 7 again with a 22 yard TD by RB Ward. The bucs finally stopped Steven Jackson and forced a FG with 2 mins left. They drove on offense but missed a long FG to end the half with a score of 21-17 Bucs. Less than a minute into the second half, the Rams took the lead for good with a 74 rushing TD by Steven Jackson. The rams forced a fumble and recovered the ball and Jackson scored another TD on the next play from 28 yards out. Both defenses finally figured out what the offenses were doing and kept both teams out of the endzone until the bucs kicked a FG with 3 minutes to go in the game. With a 7 point lead with 3 mins left, the Rams looked to eat the clock down, but on the first play, Jackson broke tackle after tackle and went 77 yards for the score to make it a 14 point game. The Bucs scored with less than 2 mins left and went for the onside kick. After a failed kick, the defense kept the rams from getting a first down and running down the clock. The Bucs got the ball with 30 secs left and no TOs, but Freeman got intercepted on the first play by FS bulter to end the game. Steven Jackson was player on the game with 337 yards and 4 TDs on 30 rushing attempts. The rams kept running up the gut and Steven Jackson responded big time with 2 70yard TDs. GG JC, you played alot better than our regular season game, Had me worried when i couldnt stop you the whole first half but that early fumble in the second did you in.
