ST. LOUIS - Shaun Hill got his job back, finally. Then he got the best of Peyton Manning.After eight weeks on the bench, the journeyman was ready.Obviously, we were facing one of the best teams in the league, Hill said after the Rams surprised Denver 22-7 on Sunday. Everybody stepped up, for sure.The 34-year-old Hill got a game ball from coach Jeff Fisher after the Rams (4-6) beat an elite team for the third time this season. Hill kept it clean with a turnover-free outing that complemented a defence that had two interceptions and made the stops that counted.Critical mistakes landed Austin Davis a spot on the bench. Hill needed two weeks to recover from a thigh injury that sidelined him in the opener, but after that he needed lots of patience.Its a constant process to stay up, especially as a backup, its tough, Hill said. But its something youve got to do.The Rams had already beaten the past two NFC champs — Seattle and San Francisco. And they had blown big leads at home against the Cowboys and the first time they played the 49ers.This time, they finished the job against the NFLs No. 2 offence, which hadnt scored fewer than 21 points and had scored 30 or more five of the previous six.Its not too bad to beat a guy who can put up 40 points in no time, defensive end Robert Quinn said. Hes a future Hall of Famer.Rookie Tre Mason had 29 carries for 113 yards, the most against the Broncos top-ranked run defence.Kenny Britt had four catches for 128 yards with a 63-yard score and Greg Zuerlein was a career-best 5 for 5 on field goals for the Rams (4-6).Manning was 34 for 54 for 389 yards with two interceptions, but was held to a 42-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, ending a streak of 15 consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes. He refused to lean on injuries that sidelined Julius Thomas, Montee Ball and Sanders.We didnt execute very well and I just think I didnt play very well, Manning said. No excuses. I have to play better and we have to score more points than seven.Demaryius Thomas had seven receptions for 103 yards, his seventh consecutive 100-yard game to match the Cowboys Michael Irvin (1995) for second-longest single-season streak in NFL history. Calvin Johnson holds the record with eight straight.The Broncos (7-3) failed twice on fourth down deep in St. Louis territory. Manning threw incomplete from the 37 in the first quarter and rookie Aaron Donalds sack helped end a drive in the fourth quarter on fourth-and-4 from the 28.Quinn spun Manning around before Donald took the quarterback down.I got the opportunity to clean him up, Donald said. Youve got to take a big quarterback down when you can.Thomas (ankle) was sidelined in the first with two catches for 3 yards and ruled out in the third, Ball (groin) got limited work before aggravating an injury that kept him out the previous five games. Sanders (concussion) was ruled out after a hit from Rodney McLeod on a deep sideline throw in the third.Hill was 20 for 29 for 220 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in his first start since injuring a thigh in the first half of the opener.The 34-year-old Hill guided a turnover-free offence.I certainly had the butterflies going, Hill said. It was a lot of fun to be back out there.Zuerlein hit three short field goals earlier, then connected from 55 and 53 yards in the fourth quarter. He last kicked five field goals in 2011 for Division II Missouri Western against Missouri Southern.Lots of times, you dont get many opportunities, Zuerlein said. Today, they came in bunches.Notes: LB Alec Ogletree and CB Trumaine Johnson had interceptions for St. Louis. Ogletree has an interception each of the last two games. ...

LOUIS -- In both of Ryan Millers starts with the St. Louis Blues, theyve faced two-goal deficits. Both times, theyve rallied to win. Though theyre still learning what type of player Miller can be, it took no time at all to pick up on the calming influence projected from the man in net. "His disposition and the way he carries himself has a professionalism to it that I think over time just rubs off on everybody," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Coaches, players -- from the time he comes into the building, the way he carries himself has a positive effect on everybody." Alexander Steen got the go-ahead goal early in the third period in a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night. Miller, who got a huge ovation during player introductions, made sure it stood up in his first home start since the Blues acquired him from Buffalo. "I dont think it was just another game," Miller said. "My sports psychologist will probably get mad at me for saying its just another game. "It was special. Its nice to get the win at home." T.J. Oshies short-handed goal tied it in the second period and he assisted on Steens 29th of the season for the Central Division leaders. Patrik Berglund started the comeback with his third goal in two games and Vladimir Tarasenkos empty-net score cinched it with a half-minute to go. Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson gave Lightning goalie Ben Bishop, a St. Louis native and former Blue, an early cushion against an opponent thats had to come from behind in all four games since the Olympic break. "I would have liked to have done a little better," Bishop said. "Its one of those things where its nice to play in front of family and friends, and it would have been nice to get the W." Miller made his second career appearance in St. Louis and faced just 17 shots against a team playing on the road for the eighth time in 10 games. He made a nice glove save on Martin St. Louis with just under two minutes to play. The Blues also rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat Phoenix 4-2 on Suunday.dddddddddddd Theyre 19-4-2 against the Eastern Conference, including 11-0-1 at home. Tampa Bay is 3-7 in its last 10 games and was 1-3 on a four-game trip. "We had multiple-goal leads in three of the four games and we led in every single game, but if youre going to sit here and take 16 shots in one game, 17 shots in another game, 21 shots in another game and expect to win games, its not going to happen," coach Jon Cooper said. "Unacceptable." Oshie slipped past St. Louis in front of the net and then beat Bishop with a backhander for the Blues third short-handed goal of the season at the midpoint of David Backes minor slashing penalty. Backes dropped his gloves preparing to fight after trading hacks with Hedman. But Hedman backed off and the Blues captain was cordoned off by a linesman before skating off in anger. Backes threw his helmet down the corridor on his way to the locker room, and didnt play the rest of the period while getting medical attention from a blow to the jaw. "He might have me by 30 pounds and Ive had my nose fixed before, but at that point in the game I was trying to get a little bit of a spark and try to get the guys going," Backes said. "I dont really want to take a two-minute penalty there, but to get a short-handed goal on that sort of penalty makes you feel a little bit better." Killorn capitalized on a giveaway by defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk in the St. Louis zone for his 15th goal. Johnson scored on a power play for his 18th of the season and first in eight games with Brenden Morrow off for high-sticking at 14:49.

Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula returned after missing four games with a non-displaced right ankle fracture and played 22 minutes with one shot. ... Steen earned his 200th career assist on Oshies short-handed goal. ... The Blues are 23-5-3 at home but fell about a thousand shy of a sellout. ...
