Los Angeles Rams: The Top Highlight And Lowlight From Saturday’s Game Against the Raiders

Setting the bad aside, let’s have a look at the good and the ugly from Saturday night’s Rams vs. Raiders game

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

All things considered, the Los Angeles Rams had another fine preseason showing on Saturday evening, when they bested the Oakland Raiders by a final score of 24-21.

Defensively the Rams’ play was...ok. That said, they were without several of their key starting players, including Aaron Donald, Robert Quinn, Mark Barron, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Kayvon Webster. Trumaine Johnson came away with the game’s lone interception. Outside of that, again, it was....good enough to win.

Offensively, the Rams look much improved from week 1 against the Cowboys — especially up front. Jared Goff looked very sharp, and his receivers - all of them - were holding onto the ball. The Rams’ starting offense moved down the field with what looked to be relative ease.

Like every game, last night’s matchup had it’s highs and lows. Let’s have a look at the Rams’ top highlight, along with the low point, from Saturday night.

Lowlight

This one’s easy. The lowest, most posterizing, moment was easily on this play right here, where Michael Crabtree takes it to the house for six...after breaking Troy Hill’s ankles (Video will be stripped for Apple News users).

Highlight

There are many very good plays to choose from here, but for me it’s this one: the game winner. Josh Reynolds, who was held out in Week 1 due to injury, does exactly what he excelled at in college...making contested catches in the red/end zone. Rams win.
