Rookie defensive back Jacob Lacey intercepted a Marc Bulger pass and returned it 35 yards for the Colts' other touchdown.
Steven Jackson ran for 134 yards for St. Louis, but 101 of those came after halftime with the Rams down and the Colts paying more attention to the pass.
The Rams remain one of three winless teams in the league at 0 and 7.
The Colts return home for three-straight, beginning with the San Francisco F49ers on Sunday afternoon.
