Preseason Week 1 win over Chargers

Five takeaways from Rams' 29-22 Preseason Week 1 win over Chargers

Standout performances by quarterback Bryce Perkins and wide Lance McCutcheon highlighted the Rams' 29-22 preseason-opening win over the Chargers Saturday night at SoFi Stadium.

Here are five takeaways from the matchup:
1) Getting an extended look at quarterback Bryce Perkins

With John Wolford getting a lot of reps during the times the Rams rested Matthew Stafford during team drills in training camp, Perkins led the offense for the majority of Saturday night's game. After the Rams' first two drives ended with punts, Perkins led them to touchdowns on four of their next five drives. He was responsible for three of them – two touchdown passes, plus a one-yard rushing touchdown.

2) Lance McCutcheon shines

McCutcheon made the most of his playing time in the first preseason game, making an impressive 60-yard touchdown catch and also doing a nice job of high-pointing the ball on a 2-point conversion completion from Perkins.

He later came up with another go-ahead touchdown grab – from 11 yards out – to give the Rams a 29-22 lead late in the fourth quarter.


3) Experimentation along the offensive line

Each half saw a different starting combination along the Rams' offensive line.

The first half saw AJ Jackson at left tackle, Tremayne Anchrum Jr. at left guard, Jeremiah Kolone at the center, rookie Logan Bruss at right guard, and Bobby Evans at right tackle.

In the second half, Jackson replaced Bruss at right guard, and Anchrum moved over to left tackle, with Chandler Brewer at left guard. The Rams also inserted rookie A.J. Arcuri at right tackle. Eventually, undrafted rookie free agent signee Jack Snyder took over at center for Kolone. Bruss also got back in at right guard in the second half.


4) Dicker the kicker handles punt, kickoff, and field goal duties

When the Rams' punt and field goal units took the field, it was Dicker doing both. In field goal situations, veteran punter Riley Dixon was the holder.

Dicker's longest punt traveled 58 yards, and he made all three of his extra-point attempts.

5) Great second effort

Not to be overlooked was running back A.J. Rose avoiding a loss of yards by spinning off a would-be tackler to get into the endzone for the touchdown in the first half....

    Realistically, what is remaining and feasible roster wise
    by general counsel
    Considering the cap situation (roughly 5.5 million give or take remaining after signing Kupp and resigning Howard, what is left that the Rams can reasonably accomplish between now and the start of the season? Never say never with snead and his creativity/restructuring, but as i see it, OBJ is likely at the top of the list (although it wont surprise me if that lasts into the season). Robert Quinn or another pass rusher is possible (but of course cap challenging). Other vets that get cut or stay on the market free agent wise and want to work on the cheap? O Line Depth, D Line depth? Personally i am excited to see the development of chris garrett in camp. Ready to take the Obo role or something even bigger?

    Ramming speed to all

    Play of the game: Lance McCutcheon
    by cowboyhater
    Is Rams WR Lance McCutcheon Lawrence's grandson? I hope so, and I am glad we have him.

    I know it is preseason, but coverage is coverage and McCutcheon made a huge NFL reception in very tight coverage for a 60 yard TD.

    I am rooting for him. And yes, it is because of memories of Lawrence and the '70s Rams. I can't help it.
