The Los Angeles Rams managed to hold off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a back and forth game on Monday night that ended in 27-24 road victory for LA.

Rams record:
The Rams are now 7-3.

What it means:
The Rams are tied for first place with the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West. The Rams currently hold the tiebreaker because they beat Seattle last week, and they are the No. 2 seed in the seven-team NFC playoff chase with six games to go.

Turning point:
The Rams set the tone for much of the game and never seemed in major trouble. But the Buccaneers tied the score at 24-24 in the fourth quarter and the Rams needed a 40-yard field goal by newly-signed kicker Matt Gay just before the two-minute warning. Rookie safety Jordan Fuller sealed the win with his second interception of Tom Brady on the next drive.

Injury report:
The Rams have been extremely healthy since coming out of their bye two weeks ago. They appear to have come out of this game in good health, as well.
