Los Angeles Rams at Detroit Lions second half gamethread

Rams lead 13-3 at half. Let’s go get that NFC West crown!

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams lead the Detroit Lions by a score of 13-3 after one half of play in Week 13. If they’re able to hold this lead, they earn themselves a second consecutive NFC West crown. But this one is far from over.

It wasn’t an ideal start for a rested Rams’ offense, whose first drive ended with an appearance from Johnny Hekker. Greg Zuerlein put them on the board with a field goal near the end of the first quarter ending a drive that stalled in the red zone.

The Lions got the equalizer (field goal) to open the second frame. The Rams’ defense also did well to hold in the red zone.

Los Angeles ultimately took the lead just before the two minute warning with a touchdown throw from Jared Goff to Robert Woods. And Legatron booted another from 47 with less than a minute to play in the second quarter, giving the Rams the two score lead.

Credit the Lions’ defense for their effectiveness - for the most part - in limiting the damage by the Rams’ juggernaut offense. The Rams’ defense has also been very stout. Dante Fowler Jr. and Cory Littleton both tallied sacks in the first half, and Aaron Donald has been all over the place wreaking havoc. It’s closer than most fans would like, but only allowing 3 points on the road is nothing to shake a stick at...whatever that means.

Aaaaand that’s all the scoring I have to report. Second half kicks off in a few. Leggo Rams!
