Tough break here for the Rams and for Sam Bradford, who will miss the entire 2014 season after another tear in his left ACL in Saturday night's preseason game against Cleveland. It's the same ACL he tore in the middle of last year. Veteran Shaun Hill now becomes the Rams' starting quarterback; he at least has a good track record of avoiding turnovers. They'll surely be scouring the waiver wire the next week or two to find a better backup than Austin Davis. Meanwhile, this is probably the end for Bradford in St. Louis, as he has a cap number around $16 million for next year. This was really the year he had to prove himself, and now he won't get the chance.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
