Los Angeles Rams: Grades for Week 1 against the Raiders


Carr turned in a poor performance in Monday's game against the Rams, and he essentially threw his team out of the game with a few terrible interceptions. "We'll take a good look at the reasons why we didn't". The touchdown was also Lynch's 59th rushing score since 2011, the most of any player during that span.

The reigning NFL coach of the year showed he is not going to stand pat after orchestrating a team that led the league in scoring last season.

In fact, according to data from Pro Football Reference, Cook is now just the fifth tight end in the past 20 seasons to have 180 or more receiving yards in a game. Gruden, as he gets ready for his opener, sat down with his old colleagues at ESPN and, unsurprisingly, pulled the "he didn't want to be here" card when asked about Mack and why the dominant defensive end was dealt. The Los Angeles Rams swarmed him with multiple defenders piling on, and seemed to have him pinned. In total, Whitehead tallied seven total tackles, one tackle for loss, and one pass defensed.

The Raiders are opening their season at home against the powerhouse Los Angeles Rams, and they couldn't have gotten off to a better start.

For his credit, Bruce Irvin did his part by with a sack and forcing a fumble in the 2nd quarter, but the Rams recovered that ball.

So with a Week 1 win secured away, and a home game next Sunday against NFC West rival Arizona Cardinals, the offense that appeared rusty, and a defense that looked at times out of sync, finally got some work in real-time.
