Don Bracken punted six times and averaged 43 yards in the opener against Buffalo. Sunday against New England, he had seven punts and a 48-yard average.
"Bracken was the special teams player of the game," Coach Chuck Knox said. "His punting really helped as far as field position and helped a lot as far as our defensive team being able to go out on the field and have that long field to defend."
The Rams ended an 11-game losing streak Sunday, but Jim Everett completed only 10 of 22 passes for 130 yards against New England. "The passing game is just out of sync," Knox said.
