The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back | ProFootballTalk

Everyone knows that the Jared Cook offensive pass interference call was a joke. It's also the latest example showing the Rams struggle to handle adversity. Young teams will struggle with adversity, but it's a weekly occurrence with this team.
