Rams announced they have promoted CB Kevin Peterson from the practice squad. They need help at the position with Kayvon Webster (concussion) and Nickell Robey-Coleman (thigh) on the mend this week. If they can't go, I expect Blake Countess and Troy Hill to replace them. The Rams had an open spot on the 53-man roster after waiving TE Johnny Mundt on Tuesday.

Lakers refuse to roll over

The Lakers overcame a 19-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Bulls on Tuesday. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it marked the first time in more than four years that Los Angeles came back from that large of a deficit in the second half to win (trailed Pelicans by 21 in the third quarter before winning on March 6, 2013). The Lakers had lost 125 straight games when trailing by at least 19 points after halftime prior to Tuesday.

When asked about the comparisons between himself and rookie Rams coach Sean McVay, Saints coach Sean Payton said, “The first similarity would be S-E-A-N.” Payton also pointed out that they share a Miami (Ohio) background and that the Rams have former Saints assistants Aaron Kromer and Bill Johnson on staff. “There's a confidence you build (when) you get your opportunity,” Payton said. “I've never had a chance to work with him. But he clearly is doing a fantastic job there.”

Former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti to ESPN.com on Chip Kelly's decision: "If he has a choice between UCLA and Florida, I think he would take Florida. They're both good jobs, but UCLA has fired every coach since Terry Donahue. People think he's got the success on the West Coast, but the reality is he's an East Coast guy. ... UCLA is a very good job. I'm not sure I could say it's a great job."
