Two good things happened Sunday for the St. Louis Rams: The franchise retired jersey No. 75 worn by former great Deacon Jones. Former Foyil High School standout Josh Brown later provided a 53-yard field goal. In the end, the Rams’ day ended in another disappointment, losing 36-17 to Green Bay. Brown added point-after-touchdown kicks and accounted for five of his team’s points.
