Late fumble ends Packers chances in 29-27 loss to Rams

Late fumble ends Packers chances in 29-27 loss to Rams

On the dash, Gurley had a clear path to the end zone.

Running back Todd Gurley set a Rams franchise record with his third-quarter touchdown on Sunday - giving him the most touchdowns through the first eight games of the season in Rams history (15).

Handing the Rams their first loss of 2018 would have been huge for the Packers when looking at some of the hard games this team has already dealt with so far, but also shows they do deserve to be considered a strong contender in the NFC.

Gurley's scoring catch put Los Angeles ahead in the third quarter, extending Gurley's TD streak to tie the Rams record set by Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch in 1950-51.

But then he pulled up and was tackled in bounds at the 4-yard-line.

Thanks to an impressive 7-0 start, the Rams were early favorites over the Green Bay Packers heading into Sunday's contest, but also knew this meeting would be far from a cake walk since Aaron Rodgers is one of the best in the business for a reason. "I think to your point though, we do tend to score a lot of points and when we don't, we can't freak out and understand that there are four quarters and we've got a lot of time".

Head coach Sean McVay challenged a catch by wide receiver Brandin Cooks on a 25-yard pass to the Packers sideline as part of a two-minute drill to end the half.

Just a few plays later, Gurley was ruled out as he tiptoed the sideline and reeled in a tipped-pass as the Rams moved into the red zone looking for their first touchdown of the day.

Jared Goff remained true to character.

No. 99 had a sack in five-straight weeks during his rookie season in 2014. The Rams were back home for the first time in 31 days after three consecutive road victories got them off to their best start since 1985, while the Packers were greeted by a raucous bunch of California Cheeseheads in their first trip to Los Angeles since the National Football League returned in 2016.
