It’s been over 20 years since Los Angeles has gotten the opportunity to cheer on a national football team. Now, after a long wait, they may want to wait even longer. The newly located Los Angeles Rams faced off against the San Francisco 49ers in a battle for California late Monday night to conclude an exciting first week of football.
From the start of the game, the 49ers completely dominated the Rams. The Niners, with new coach Chip Kelly, moved the ball easily on offense and frequently won battles on defense. They didn’t look like the 5-11 team that placed in last in the NFC West last season.
On the other hand, the Rams looked terrible. Star running back Todd Gurley managed only 47 rushing yards and starting quarterback Case Keenum looked like he belongs in the CFL. Keenum threw for just 130 yards and had two interceptions. It was an embarrassing homecoming for a Rams team that looked like one of the worst in the NFL after one week.
