The Los Angeles Rams obliterated the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 37-10. The Rams — who were looking for a performance of this magnitude — needed a win to break a three-game losing skid, and to create the momentum they could use moving into London in Week.

The Rams dominated on all phases, like a throwback 2018 performance. Offensively, quarterback Jared Goff was sharp, throwing accurate passes (outside of a few to tight end Gerald Everett) and making great decisions. Goff had 268 yards and two touchdowns.

The running game struggled as Todd Gurley averaged 2.3 yards-per-carry and Darrell Henderson averaged 2.8 yards-per-carry. Goff chipped in with a rushing touchdown of his own, though the ground attack played second fiddle in this contest.

The ball was spread evenly among the offensive weapons, as Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks, and Gerald Everett all played a role in creating big plays.

Defensively, the unit dominated from start to finish. Dante Fowler Jr. led the charge with a three-sack performance, though all eyes were on newly acquired cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey was dominant, surrendering only one big catch to Julio Jones. Aaron Donald chipped in with his fourth sack of the season, which turned into a fumble and a recovery.

The special teams unit had some fun of their own when punter Johnny Hekker threw a dart in the flat to safety Nick Scott for a sneaky fourth-down conversion. They also had a fumble return for a touchdown on a punt.

Good start for the Rams as they prepare to take flight to London.
