Random Ramsdom 10/21: Two wins & Four losses.

New, comments

The Rams finally put together their first win of the season against a team that wasn't the Buccaneers. However, it looked eerily similar to earlier games this season as the Rams choked up a 21-3 lead which was only preserved by a questionable call on the last play of the game.
