Former Raven Boller Leads Rams Over Bengals 24-21

Kyle Boller played better in his second game filling in for Marc Bulger, completing a flurry of short passes during a victory over the Bengals.

Boller struggled last week in a 20-13 loss to the Falcons, but seemed much more comfortable against the Bengals. He completed 14 of 20 for 96 yards, heading for the bench after the opening series of the third quarter.

The Bengals were also missing Carson Palmer, and J.T. O’Sullivan was sacked three times, lost a fumble and had two passes batted away at the line in his place. His best moment was an improvised underhand pass to running back Brian Leonard that went for 25 yards and set up a touchdown. O’Sullivan was 7 of 13 for 94 yards while playing into the third quarter.

With Palmer sidelined the last two games by a sprained left ankle, the offense has moved the ball in spurts but failed to get many points because of penalties and mistakes. O’Sullivan’s fumble at the Cincinnati 20-yard line set up the Rams’ second touchdown.
