National Spotlight On Rams Thursday Night

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- The national sports spotlight is shining on St. Louis, not only for baseball but also football. 

The Rams get set to play the Cardinals Thursday night.

It`s been 5 years since a Rams` home game was nationally televised. You can watch it on KPLR CH 11.

The game day excitement begins in Kiener Plaza at 11:30 Thursday morning with a pep rally featuring hall of famer Marshall Faulk.

If the Rams win Thursday night, it will be the first time since 2003 they`ve gone 3 and 0 at home.

Local restaurants say they`ve noticed a bit of an upswing in business as the Rams have improved.
