LA Rams Matthew Stafford: Let’s give ’em something to talk about
Point scoring mastery
The LA Rams offense did not take much time to score. Their first touchdown on the board took all of 1:18 and was thanks to a 67-touchdown bomb to wide receiver Van Jefferson. The first field goal took 2:38 to put the score to 10-0. The Rams’ second field goal took 4:35 to set the score to 13-0. By the time that the gun sounded to end the first half, the team had punted just once and held to a 13-7 halftime lead.
The LA Rams got the ball in the second half and needed just 1:08 to score their second touchdown. This time it was a 56-yard touchdown to wide receiver Cooper Kupp. After the Chicago Bears chewed up nearly 10 minutes to answer with a touchdown and get within six points at 20-14, the Rams offense took over once more.
This time the Rams needed 2:56 to put up their touchdown on a 1-yard touchdown plunge by running back Darrell Henderson. But that drive had bombs as well, one 37-yard strike that hit the tight end, Tyler Higbee, in stride down the right sideline. That was followed up three plays later with a short pass to wide receiver Cooper Kupp who ran for 17 yards and fell short of the goal line.
The final score of the game required 6:44 to get seven more points on the board. This time the drive was a more conventional short-yardage passing from Stafford and a strong running effort by Henderson. The drive was capped off by a two-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Robert Woods.
