Tampa Bay is looking to rebound from it’s embarrassing 41-0 loss last weekend and hope to get back on the winning track against the visiting St. Louis Rams. LB Adam Hayward put it best.
“We’ve got something to prove. When you get a butt-whipping like that, you don’t want to end on a note like that, you want to go out there and fight and kind of be like, ‘This is how I want to be remembered,’ not being blown out 41-0. I know these guys and I see it in their eyes and they want to play football.”
The Rams are also looking to rebound from a 36-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. First year coach Jeff Fisher has been a little disappointed on how the season has unfolded but knows that in the NFL there are not many opportunities to win and a ton of opportunities to lose.
“We have a chance, with success this week, if that happens, we have chance to finish with a winning record. We have a chance to, if we’re successful this week, we have a chance to be undefeated in the division, which is going to be a very, very difficult task, especially up there, so there’s challenges, Fisher said. “We talk improving. From day one we’ve talked about improving and you just don’t stop improving in Week 17 when the game’s over. You push right through the season, then you push in the offseason and then you move forward improving the big picture with this football team.”
