The Rams' defense put on another outstanding performance in their 24:10 win over the Bears on Monday Night Football.
The tone for LA was former Chicago defender Leonard Floyd, who completed six tackles including two sacks and three hits against Bears QB Nick Foles. The Rams sacked Foles four times and kept the 2018 Super Bowl MVP under pressure all night, resulting in two interceptions in the second half.
The first interception came in the end zone after an incredible game by Troy Hill to give teammate Taylor Rapp the ball. Those sales resulted in a touchdown in LA that took a 24-3 lead at the end of the third quarter.
The second interception was made by Jalen Ramsey, who made his first pick of the season 3:13 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
Both teams had solid defenses, but the pace of LA made a difference as the Rams could wear down the Chicago defense and confuse it with moves and formation shifts. Jared Goff ended the night with 23 of 33 passes (69.7 percent) for 219 yards and two TDs. Running backs Darrell Henderson Jr. and Malcom Brown combined for 25 carry for 121 yards and a touchdown. It wasn't too noticeable, but it was enough to score points against a tough Chicago defense.
Perhaps the greatest influence came in the game of punting. Johnny Hekker won the field position battle for the Rams with one hand, scoring 221 yards on five punts (44.2 yards per punt), with all five landing within the 10-yard line, two within the 5 and one 63-yard punt knocked down at the 1 yard line. That prepared the LA defense for success all night and put Goff and the offensive in an advantageous field position all night.
The Lone Bears touchdown came from a fiddly rebound from Eddie Jackson to make it to 24-10 in the fourth quarter, but it was too little late for Chicago.
The Rams (5: 2) are now in second place with the Cardinals in the stacked NFC West, half a game behind the Seahawks. The bears (5-2) are now half a game behind the Packers in NFC Nord.
