Football is in Los Angeles and the Rams gave a giant crowd a show in the opening game.
Now, the Rams look to make it 2-0 to start the preseason when they welcome in the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 of the preseason.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs saw some encouraging signs in their opening week loss to Seattle. While they dropped the decision 17-16 to the Seahawks, the first half was a nice sight.
The Chiefs used 5 different QBs in the loss, as they attempt to find a solidified backup to Alex Smith. The starter played just 1 drive and went 3/4 on it for 36 yards.
Aaron Murray, Nick Foles, Tyler Bray, and Kevin Hogan all got work in, with Hogan being the only one to throw an interception.
The most encouraging sign of it all was the defensive effort in the first half.
The first and second stringers allowed just 3 points to the Seahawks and never allowed them to get anything threatening going. While the result was a loss, it was the back end players that coughed up the lead in the 2nd half.
Los Angeles Rams
While it wasn’t the first team that did it’s job, the party was still on in Los Angeles.
Football is in Los Angeles and while it was just a preseason game, a come from behind win was exciting to see for the packed house at the Coliseum in Week 1 of the preseason.
The Rams erased a 24-7 halftime deficit to come back and grab a 28-24 victory.
Jared Goff and Case Keenum both got work in the first half with Goff throwing an interception in his NFL debut. Keenum will be the starter, but expect to see Goff sooner rather than later this season.
Sean Mannion, out of Oregon State, was the key to the comeback showing some encouraging signs. Mannion went 18 for 25 with 147 yards while tossing 3 touchdowns and an interception.
Expect the trio of QBs to get the workload here, with Goff and Keenum getting a little bit more than they did in the opener.
