4 takeaways from the Rams 17-9 loss to the Broncos

By: Jeff Smith 
If you were looking for offense Saturday, you were looking in the wrong place when the Los Angeles Rams were on the road against the Denver Broncos. The teams combined for 26 points in Denver’s 17-9 victory and only seven points were scored in the second half.

The game was still close though and pretty interesting overall. So let’s jump in and check out the four things that stood out.

Jared Goff’s struggles are officially real
It’s almost becoming repetitive to talk about Goff’s preseason up-and-down play. This week, though, we saw it under a microscope and it wasn’t great to watch. Goff completed just 4 of 12 passes for 45 yards while posting a 45.5 quarterback rating and had to leave the game with a bruised tailbone.

Tavon Austin gets extension from Rams for the wrong reason

by Keith Rivas

Tavon Austin impressed the Los Angeles Rams enough to be given a four year contract extension valued at $42 million.

As the Rams prepare for their first regular season out of Los Angeles in twenty years, many folks are watching them closely in the preseason — especially Tavon Austin.

While their quarterback situation plays out, the team made a surprising move by giving Austin more money.

The extension guarantees Austin a big payday, which comes out to him to getting at least $30 million.

Rams are familiar with social protests before games

By Alden Gonzalez
ESPN Staff Writer

IRVINE, Calif. — Jeff Fisher’s profound respect for the national anthem was noticeable during a recent episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks”, which aired footage of a team meeting in which the Los Angeles Rams coach walked his players through the proper way to salute the flag before games. But Fisher wanted no part of the controversy that has engulfed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is sitting during the national anthem — his way to raise awareness for racial oppression in the United States.

“I know it’s a societal issue, but I don’t feel like it’s my place to comment,” Fisher said during Sunday’s availability. “I think our respect for the national anthem has been very, very well-documented, and we’re going to continue to have respect for the national anthem.”

Rams’ Robert Quinn snags jersey from Broncos’ Von Miller

By Alden Gonzalez
ESPN Staff Writer

DENVER — Los Angeles Rams defensive end Robert Quinn didn’t leave Denver without a souvenir.

Immediately after the Rams’ 17-9 preseason loss on Saturday night, Quinn picked up an autographed jersey from Broncos star Von Miller, one of the game’s most ferocious linebackers. Quinn and Miller were both first-round picks in a 2011 draft loaded with pass-rushers, one that also included J.J. Watt and Justin Houston. And Quinn has long admired Miller from afar.

Rams’ 53-man roster projection includes Nelson Spruce, 4 TEs

By Alden Gonzalez

The Los Angeles Rams must cut their roster to 75 by 4 p.m. ET Tuesday and to 53 by 4 p.m. ET Saturday. Here’s a final 53-man roster projection:

QUARTERBACK (3): Jared Goff, Case Keenum, Sean Mannion

There’s enough uncertainty at the quarterback position to necessitate a third-string guy in Mannion, who played well in the second half of the first preseason game. The question, of course, is when does Goff become the starter over Keenum? Still no telling.
