Football fans were starving for a win at the St. Louis Rams' home opener on September 7, 2014. Tailgating near the Edward Jones Dome downtown, Rams supporters served up pork, hot dogs and plenty of beer before heading into the Dome. Fans ultimately would go home with empty bellies and broken hearts, though; the Rams lost 34-6 to the Minnesota Vikings.
