The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Chicago Bears 34-14 in a very highly anticipated Sunday Night Football Game. The Rams were in control for the entirety of the contest, only showing glimpses of weakness to Chicago. Here’s what went well for the Rams, and what didn’t go so well for the Bears, in our Rams Vs Bears Recap.
Matthew Stafford And The Rams Offense
Matthew Stafford was just one of the many breakout players for the Rams tonight, throwing for 321 yards, and three touchdowns. Cooper Kupp also played well, snagging of his 10 targets for 108 yards and a score.
The Los Angeles offense looked spot-on and ran very smoothly, for Stafford’s first game with his new squad. The Rams skill players also made Stafford feel just at home by getting past the Chicago secondary with ease. Van Jefferson and Robert Woods also each had a receiving touchdown on the night, while Darrell Henderson made it into the end zone on the ground.
The Rams Stellar Defense
The Rams offense wasn’t the only thing that was clicking for them against the Bears. Their defense notched three sacks and one interception. They also made it a real rough night for Bears quarterback, Andy Dalton. Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey did their parts to prove why the Rams have one of the best defenses in the league.
Andy Dalton And The Bears Offensive Mishaps
The Bears had a real quiet night on offense, with only 322 total yards. The one bright spot was running back David Montgomery, who notched over 100 yards on the ground, and also took one to the house in the 2nd quarter. On a good note, Chicago’s beloved rookie Justin Fields made his NFL Regular Season debut. Fields didn’t do much, but he did find his way to the end zone on his lone rush of the night.
The Rams proved that they can still be a playoff team without star running back Cam Akers; he tore his Achilles this summer, ruling him out for the season. Los Angeles will now travel to Indianapolis in Week 2 to play the Colts, who just fell short to a fellow NFC West rival, the Seattle Seahawks.
As for the Bears, they’re still surprisingly tied for 1st in the NFC North, as all teams lost their respective games in Week 1. It is still unclear on whether Matt Nagy will continue to stick with Andy Dalton as Chicago’s starting quarterback. But there will certainly be a change in the near future if Dalton continues to play the way he did against the Rams.
