The Los Angeles Rams bounce back after their home loss to Seattle in Week 5, to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-17.

Before the clock had a full minute tick off of it, the Los Angeles Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars we’re tied at seven. Rams returner Pharoh Cooper had taken the opening kickoff back for 103 yards, and Jags rookie running back Leonard Fournette ran his team’s opening snap for 75 years and a touchdown.

By the end of the first quarter, the score was Los Angeles 17, Jacksonville 14.

Then the defenses took over as both offenses struggled. Over the course of the next three quarters, both teams would combine for a total of 13 points.

For LA fans hoping to see Jared Goff find some familiar form, you were likely disappointed. Goff would tally a stay line that shows him throwing for 124 yards on 11 of 21, and one touchdown.

Rams running back Todd Gurley would grind out a respectable afternoon with 116 yards on 23 carries. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who took to social media last week to lament his lack of production, isn’t likely to be very happy with his stat line. Watkins was targeted four times, catching one ball for 11 yards.

For Los Angeles, it was a day for special teams, as Cooper and Malcolm Brown provided two touchdowns for the Rams. Kicker Greg Zuerlein would add two field goals and rookie Gerald Everett would also add a TD, powering LA to a needed win before heading to London for an NFC West game against the rejuvenated Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

The Los Angeles Rams are now 4-2 on the season, marching their win total from the 2016 season.
