Rams Gameday Notes

Posted Sep 7, 2008

Updated game notes on the Rams season opener at Philadelphia.

The Rams punted on thier first 10 possessions.

Rams wide receiver Drew Bennett stayed down after a four-yard gain on a reception with about nine minutes left in the first quarter. He appeared to hurt his knee on the play, and was helped off the field while limping.

The Rams secondary blown coverages lead to huge gains throughout the game.

Eagles rookie wide receiver DeShaun Jackson looks like a veteran pro-bowler in his first game. He finished with 6 receptions for 106 yards.

Torry Holt (standing on the sideline watching a play) was in the way of an official as he was backing down the sideline causing Rams 15 yard penalty.

The Eagles outgained the Rams 151 yards to 28 in the first quarter.

Half time yards: Philadelphia 331, Rams 87

Donovan McNabb's backup entered game with 9 minutes left in 4th quarter.

McNabb had his best opening day numbers of his career---21/33 for 361 yards and 3 TD.

The Rams finally get on the board with 9 minutes left on a Josh Brown field goal.

Orlando Pace left the game in 4th quarter and was grimacing on the sideline, but no word yet on his injury. Adam Goldberg replaced him on the line.

Steven Jackson missed a block leading to Bulger's 4th sack.

Rams lose 38-3.

The Eagles have 3 100 yard receivers in one game for first time since 1960, and Philadelphia enjoyed thier largest margin of victory ever in an opening game.

Keenan Burton saw no action.

Each Rams offensive lineman except Pace had a false start.
