Los Angeles Teams

That's a 53-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein, who was 3-for-9 from beyond 50 yards last year. He's 4-for-4 on field goals this season. 10-6, Rams.

Each Dodgers player that comes to bat is tipping their helmet towards Vin Scully in the broadcast booth before stepping into the batter's box.

Rams DE Will Hayes has been diagnosed with an ankle injury. Return is questionable.

That was about as bad a read as you can have from Case Keenum. Threw it directly into the hands of LB Kwon Alexander for an easy pick-six. Rams catch a break on the missed field goal. One thing Keenum can't afford is mistakes like those.

Rams DE Will Hayes carted off the field and into the locker room. No word on why yet.

The Rams scored their first touchdown of the season. If they can score one more, Los Angeles will get free hamburgers.

The Rams have their first touchdown, on the most encouraging play possible -- a 44-yard strike with Brian Quick on a post route. Easily beat his defender. Play action set up that pass. Was a big weapon for them last week, too. This is how you create space for Todd Gurley. You have to make defenses pay for stacking the box.

The umpires tip their hats and wave to Vin Scully one last time at Dodger Stadium.

A nice start by Tavon Austin, another guy the Rams really need to get going. 8-yard catch on a crossing route to convert a third down, then a 14-yard flag route to the outside for a gain of 14.

Two years ago we cried for Óscar Taveras and today we do it for José Fernández. Descansa en paz mi amigo. Nuestro mayor sentido pésame a toda tu familia.

The Dodgers honor José Fernández with a moment of silence before today's game.

"Best D-line in football!" a Rams fan hollered from the stands. Maybe. Maybe.

Big test for this Rams secondary, which remains shorthanded without E.J. Gaines. With Doug Martin out, Jameis Winston will throw often. Dark clouds hovering, but only light, intermittent rain thus far.

Dave Roberts asked Yasiel Puig if he wanted to play today. He said yes. He's dedicating the game to José Fernández.

Jared Goff will be the backup QB today, with Sean Mannion inactive. Pharoh Cooper (shoulder), Nelson Spruce (knee), EJ Gaines (thigh) all inactive, which is significant for the Rams. Gaines' absence will probably force Troy Hill to start as the No. 2 corner. Tough matchup against a couple of 6-foot-5 receivers in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Brian Quick is the No. 3 WR, after Austin and Britt. Also inactive: T Pace Murphy, TE Temarrick Hemingway, DE Matt Longacre.
