The Bells continue to alternate possessions as they did in the preseason; Mike Bell entered on the Broncos’ second drive and immediately got onto the statistics sheet by catching an underhanded pass from Jake Plummer for no gain. His second play was better, using a stutter-step to go right for six yards after looking as though he might be tackled in the backfield.
… St. Louis’ crowd, aroused by the homestanders’ quick start, approached F-16 level on third-and-4, went to a higher level after Plummer was sacked and fumbled, with the ball skipping backwards 20 yards to the 3-yard-line where the Rams recovered. Denver challenged the call, but the play was upheld.
… Leonard Little has both of the Rams’ sacks so far, coming in through the right side of Denver’s offensive line.
