The game began with LA kicking off to the Commanders. Quaterback for Washington, Sam Howell, was not able to do much on this first drive and Washington quckly punted the ball back to LA. The Rams had a productive opening drive, but Matthew Stafford took a sack on a third and goal, so LA kicked a field goal to open up the scoring. LA led 3-0 after the successful Lucas Havrisik attempt.
On their second drive, Washington was able to move the ball into scoring position, but Raheem Morris’s defense held the line to turn away the Commanders empty handed. LA still led 3-0 and had a chance to further their lead. The first quarter came to a close with Stafford connecting with Tyler Higbee for a few yards.
The second quarter started with Stafford connecting with Cooper Kupp for a first down. LA was able to move the chains and found themselves in scoring position for the second drive in a row. Kyren Williams was running well, but fumbled in the red zone. The Commanders recovered the fumbled ball and Washington had a chance to add to their points. The Rams defense bailed out Williams, and forced a Commander’s punt.
On the next drive Williams redeemed the fumble with a rushing touchdown. LA led 10-0 after the extra point with just about two minutes remaining in the half. LA’s defense kept up their level of play and forced another Washington punt after the two minute warning,
LA looked to have at least one more chance to score with over a minute and a half to go in the second quarter. However WIlliams would fumble for the second time, and Washington recovered the ball setting them up to potentially score before the end of the half.
The defense was able to sack Howell and they forced another punt once again setting up LA to add to their lead before the quarter came to a close. Washington would actually fumble the ball during the punt setting LA’s offense up with excellent field position. The Rams would settle for a field goal attempt and they took a 13-0 lead with about three second remaining in the half. Washing would take a knee and the first half would come to a close with LA keeping the 13-0 lead.
