Ogletree Shines in Rams' 27-26 Loss to Broncos

DENVER (AP) - Rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree ruined Ronnie Hillman's night with a strip-and-score takeaway and kept Peyton Manning from turning all those passes into points with a big interception. Yet the St. Louis Rams' lost 27-26 at Denver on Saturday night.

Ogletree ripped the football from Hillman's arms, scooped it up and trotted 13 yards for the score one week after Hillman's fumble at the goal line was returned 106 yards for a touchdown in Seattle.

Manning completed 25 of 34 passes for 234 yards in one half, but Ogletree's pickoff just before halftime set up Greg Zuerlein's 58-yarder field goal that gave the Rams a 20-10 lead at the break.

Ogletree also had a half-dozen tackles and two pass breakups in his breakout preseason performance.
