Rams...28 Falcons...16

December 03, 2007|From the Associated Press

ST. LOUIS -- Gus Frerotte carries blame for the St. Louis Rams' last home loss.

His fast start had a lot to do with the franchise finally getting a win.

Frerotte threw three touchdown passes in the first half, then sweated out two second-half interceptions, in a 28-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, the Rams' first home win this season in six games.

Frerotte, who fumbled a routine snap on fourth and goal from the one-yard line in the final minute of a five-point loss to the Seattle Seahawks last week at home, got his third start of the year in place of Marc Bulger, sidelined by a concussion last week.

Chris Redman threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter after replacing an ineffective Joey Harrington for the Falcons (3-9).

The Rams (3-9) had their third home television blackout this season after only one the first 12 seasons in St. Louis.
