After a rather slow first quarter where each team traded touchdowns, the LA Rams found a different gear in the final three quarters as they cruised to an overwhelming 30-10 victory over the Washington Football Team at FedEx Field.
Jared Goff was fairly efficient in this one as he completed 21 of his 30 passes for 309 yards with two scores and an interception while also adding a rushing score off of a bootleg.
Rookie Cam Akers led the team in rushing with 61 yards on nine carries, which was highlighted by a 46-yard end around in the fourth quarter. Teammate Darrell Henderson rushed for and caught a touchdown while adding 38 yards on the ground.
Tight end Gerald Everrett caught four passes for a team-high 90 yards and wide receiver Cooper Kupp led the team with five receptions for 66 yards.
Defensive tackle Aaron Donald played out of his mind on Sunday afternoon as he finished with four of the defense’s eight sacks on the day.
Next up, the Rams head to Northern California to play the San Francisco 49ers in a Week 6 Sunday Night Football matchup.
