The 2013 St. Louis Rams season was the franchise's 76th season in the National Football League, the 19th overall in St. Louis and the second under head coach Jeff Fisher. The Rams equaled their win total from 2012, but missed the playoffs for a ninth consecutive season.
Week 7 was Sam Bradford's last game in a Rams uniform, as he tore his ACL in a game against Carolina. That same injury would not allow him to play for the next season, and he did not play another down again in a Rams uniform as he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles following the 2014 season.

Tempers flared all game long. Not only did the Rams lose the game 15-30, but they lost two starters; defensive end Chris Long was ejected after throwing a punch and quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a season-ending knee injury after running out of bounds. It would also be Sam Bradford's last game in a Rams uniform as he missed all of 2014 with the same injury to the same knee and was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015.
The Rams harassed Andrew Luck and the Colts all game long, stunning Indy with a 38-8 blowout. The game's highlights included Chris Long returning a fumble for a 45 yards to give the Rams the game's first points. Tayvon Austin broke the hearts of Colts' fans with three touchdowns, one returned for 98 yards and two receptions.
With the loss, the Rams clinched their 10th consecutive non-winning season, and were officially eliminated from playoff contention.
The Rams defense shut down the Buccaneers' offense throughout the game, but Jake Long tore his ACL, ending his season. Nevertheless, the Rams would win 23-13.
Traveling to Seattle for the second time in a row this season, the Rams once again could not respond as they would go on to lose their season finale, 27-9.
