Rams Fail To Get Going After Opening Drive, Lose 34-7


After an impressive 28-26 victory against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, many were hoping the St. Louis Rams would be able to put together back to back impressive performances. That was not the case as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Rams lost their second game with the final score of 34-7.

What looked like it was going to be another solid performance with a 65 yard scoring drive capped off by a Lance Kendricks touchdown pass, was everything but. The Rams offense failed to get anything going the rest of the game managing at one point 26 plays for only 44 yards.

Once again for the Rams they failed to capitalize on opportunities. Early in the game E.J. Gaines failed to just fall on a would have been fumble recovery at midfield, that the Chiefs recovered and scored a touchdown intend, as well as a fumble inside the Chiefs 10 yard line, the offense came out empty handed as Greg Zuerlein missed a 38-yard field goal.

Going into the half, the Rams only trailed 10-7, that was until Knile Davis returned a bouncing kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown to make the lead 17-7 and deflating the Rams. Jamaal Charles then put the game away with a 36-yd touchdown run to make the score 24-

Also worth noting, Rodger Saffold, Brian Quick, Rodney McLeod, Jake Long, and Cody Davis all went down with injuries during the game. The Rams will have to get healthy quick as they are 2-5 and have the 49ers, Cardinals, Broncos, and Chargers ahead on the schedule.
