The St. Louis Rams get ready to take on the Washington Redskins.
The St. Louis Rams get ready to take on the Washington Redskins.

A sunny fall Saturday with just about 24 or so hours until the St. Louis Rams try to salvage their season. Of course, there's plenty of college football on tap, and 3k is going to have you covered with everything you need to know for today's games. For now, let's get you caught up with the goings on today.

Four Rams fined total of $35,000 - Danario Alexander, Jacob Bell, Jason Smith and Bradley Fletcher were all fined for various incidents in last week's game, for a total of $35,000. The optimist in me likes the fact that the Rams finally looked pissed off; they should be pissed off about their play. Hopefully that's a sign a things to come, the sign of a team fed up with losing and unwilling to take it any more.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke is in it for the long haul - The Telegraph (UK) goes in-depth with Arsenal and St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke's son. Ostensibly about the Arsenal, this piece offers some real insight into Kroenke's philosophy of owning and running a sports team. Really a must-read piece.

Redskins-Rams: Five storylines to follow  - The Redskins look to get the taste of Monday’s disappointing loss out of their mouths Sunday when they pay a visit to the St. Louis Rams. Mike Jones at the Washington Post looks at five things the Redskins have to do; therefore, the Rams just have to do the opposite in order to win...right?

Rams hope history repeats itself - We've said it before, a game against Washington was the perfect medicine for a listless Rams team last year. Washington is well aware of that, and won't be so willing to roll over for the Rams. Especially not Jim Haslett's defense, which hasn't done its usual collapse yet. 

Bradley Fletcher leads the way with six penalties - Despite their best efforts to take the lead league last week against Baltimore, the St. Louis Rams are actually fifth in the league with 30 penalties. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher leads the way with six as NFL refs continue to be nothing but arbitrary about throwing flags on passing plays.
