NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the St. Louis Rams by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
ST. LOUIS RAMS (19)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 19) - 1-0-1 versus San Francisco, 4-0-1 versus division.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 19) - A solid first season together for Jeff Fisher and Sam Bradford.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 23)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 25) - Undefeated in the division ... really ... I'm not making that up (4-0-1).
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 18) - If the Rams could only play as well against other teams as they do against the 49ers, they'd be in the playoffs. Terrific effort, especially on defense, against the Niners.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 18) - The Rams are looking to snap a five-game losing streak to AFC opponents this weekend in Buffalo. St. Louis is 0-3 against the AFC this season.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 18) - This week's Offensive MVP goes to ... Colin Kaepernick? Gotta like what Jeff Fisher has done with these guys in one season.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 17) - Outplaying the 49ers twice is no small feat.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 19) - Jeff Fisher has done a tremendous coaching job and this team is tough. Beating the 49ers this week is the building block Fisher needed to put this team in contention next year.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 19) - Jeff Fisher has done a masterful job with this team!
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 19) - If they could only play San Francisco every week, the Rams (5-6-1) might be in the playoffs for the first time since 2004. But with three road games remaining, a postseason berth seems unlikely.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 18) - If they could play the 49ers every week, the Rams would be one of the best teams in the NFL.
