Rams hold off Chargers 35-23 in LA's crosstown showdown

Jared Goff passed for 354 yards and three touchdowns, and Todd Gurley rushed for 105 yards and another score, leading the Rams to a 35-23 victory over the Chargers on Sunday in the franchises' first meeting since their relocations to Los Angeles.

I can't believe Cory Littleton blocked another punt for the Rams, this last one for a touchdown. That's three — three! — since the start of last season.

Great interception by Chargers safety Derwin James on a Jared Goff pass intended for TE Gerald Everett. Only hiccup is James couldn't stay in the end zone, and ran out of bounds at the 1-yard line. Chargers have now forced two turnovers.

Chargers WR Mike Williams with an amazing, 42-yard diving catch for a score to tie the game at 7-all. However, Williams remained down for awhile with what appeared to be a right shoulder injury. After being attended to by trainers, Williams got up and jogged off on his own.

One thing you have to love about this game is that Philip Rivers is not going to be afraid to throw against this Rams secondary, as he showed with that perfect 42-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams. This could be a lot of fun.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Pretty interesting that the Rams have liked running the ghost motion with Robert Woods so much. He really surprised them with his speed last year.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers DT Brandon Mebane with a pretty good series: 2 tackles, a tipped pass and a forced fumble that Desmond King recovered.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Decent amount of Chargers fans are sprinkled in, by the way.
