The L.A. Rams fell in a hole big time vs. the Tampa Bay Bucs trailing 21-0 in the first half. Rams QB Jarred Goff threw for a career high 517 yards but they came along with 3 interceptions in a 55-40 setback to the Bucs (2-2).

Robert Woods was on the receiving end 13 times for 164 yards. Cooper Kupp added 9 receptions for 121 yards. Todd Gurley rushed for 2 scores and on one he looked like “TG” with a bruising run up the middle.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston completed 28 of 41 passes for 385 yards most going to Chris Goodwin who had a career high 12 catches for 172 yards and 2 TD’s. Those 12 receptions were the most by a Bucs receiver since Keyshawn Johnson (2001). Former Trojan Ronald Jones II ran for 100 yards and had runs 55 and 25 yards called back due to holding penalties.

At the 2:35 in the 4th Bucs receiver Mike Evans caught a 67 yarder from Winston to give the Bucs a 45-27 lead. Kupp caught a 29 yard touchdown pass, then Marcus Peters returned an interception 32 yards for a score with 8:11 to play.

The lead was cut to eight when Winston drove the Bucs 72 yard for a Matt Guy Short field goal.
