For Rams, a good start on the road has been hard to come by
By Mike Wilkening
The Rams have lost their last three road openers. In each game, St. Louis was favored, most recently in 2005, when the 49ers scored a 28-25 win as a 6½-point underdog. The Rams will not be favored at Philadelphia in Week One and could very well be an underdog of more than a touchdown, but a strong Week One effort is a must as they vault into the teeth of a tough schedule that features games vs. 2007 playoff teams in the first two months of the season.
