Los Angeles Rams (1-0) – Chicago Bears (0-1) : 34-14
Two passes were enough for a Matthew Stafford (20/26, 321 yards, 3 TDs) to conquer his new audience. On his second attempt, the former Lions quarterback found Van Jefferson (2 rec, 80 yards, 1 TD) for a 57-yard touchdown which gave the first advantage of the game to the Rams (7-0). He did it again with an offering of 56 yards for Cooper Kupp (7 rec, 108 yards, 1 TD) at the start of the third quarter (27-14), and a last for Robert Woods (3 rec, 27 yards, 1 TD) and the touchdown of the total knockout (34-14) at the end of the match.
That didn’t take long.

Not helped by the ground game during the first three quarters, Stafford on the other hand took advantage of the errors in coverage of a Chicago defense not fully returned from vacation.
The too clumsy Bears
Andy Dalton (27/38, 206 yards, 1 int) and his team took too long to enter this match. After an interception on a deflected ball on the first offensive, a failure on the fourth attempt, a fumble and a punt followed. It was not until the last minute before the break for David Montgomery (16 races, 108 yards, 1 TD) to set foot in the end zone (13-7).
Too late to really worry the Rams, who therefore took to the sea thanks to Kupp at the start of the third quarter (20-7). Justin Fields, who played a few snaps, reduced the score on the ground in stride (20-14), but Los Angeles scored again on its last two drives to permanently seal the fate of the meeting.
Because if Chicago started badly in attack, it is the inability of the defense to stop Matthew Stafford and his gang that decided the match. The Rams have touchdowns in four of their seven possessions, including three to finish.
Sean McVay could not have asked for better for the premiere of his new pitcher. The public, finally present at SoFi Stadium, too.PUT 1xbet
