The St. Louis Rams came out against the San Francisco 49ers pretty well, moving the chains on offense and even scoring a rushing touchdown against them with their third string quarterback to take an early lead at the Edwards Jones Dome.
But Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels tried to get a little too cute against the 49ers opportunistic defense, as Jerious Norwood's attempted pass was easily intercepted by Tarell Brown, swinging the momentum in San Francisco's favor big time, helping their chances at locking down the No. 2 seed heading into the second season.
Here's the play in all it's glory. The Rams were calling a nice game offensively up until this debacle happened.
