Broncos acquire LB Kenny Young from Rams

The Denver Broncos addressed their linebacker shortage Monday by acquiring Kenny Young from the Los Angeles Rams.

The Broncos also will receive a seventh-round pick from the 2024 NFL Draft in the deal. The Rams will receive a sixth-round selection in that same draft.

Eight-time Pro Bowl selection Von Miller became the latest Denver linebacker to sustain an injury. Miller injured his ankle during Thursday’s 17-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns, becoming the eighth injured linebacker for the Broncos — with six of them on injured reserve.

Young, 26, has recorded 46 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in seven games (all starts) this season. The UCLA product is in the final season of his original four-year deal after he was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 and becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2022.

Young has 166 tackles, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 53 career games (19 starts) with the Rams and the Baltimore Ravens (2018-19). Los Angeles is expected to find more playing time for rookie linebacker Ernest Jones, a third-round draft pick out of South Carolina.

Matthew Stafford outduels Jared Goff, Rams beat tricky Lions

The Detroit Lions battled but ultimately succumbed to a more complete team in the Los Angeles Rams, who won 28-19 on Sunday in Inglewood, Calif.

Looking for his first win, Detroit head coach Dan Campbell took some gambles that paid off, including two fake punts converted for first downs and a successful onside kick, giving the Lions a chance to win a game as heavy underdogs.

But playing against his old team, Jared Goff couldn’t get the job done. Goff finished 22-of-36 for 268 yards with a touchdown. However, looking for the go-ahead score late in the game, Goff threw an interception in the end zone to Jalen Ramsey before throwing another to safety Nick Scott to end the game.

Matthew Stafford, whom the Rams acquired from the Lions in a deal for Goff, completed 28 of 41 passes for 334 yards and three touchdowns. Stafford’s favorite target was Cooper Kupp, who finished with 10 catches for 156 yards and two scores.

Stafford threw his 300th career touchdown late in the second quarter on a 2-yard slant route to Kupp, becoming the seventh-fastest QB to reach 300 passing TDs.

The Lions (0-7) took control of the game early. Goff connected with running back D’Andre Swift on a screen pass and Swift took it 63 yards for a 7-0 lead. Swift finished with 144 yards from scrimmage.

Detroit kicker Austin Seibert executed an onside kick to perfection on the following possession, with Lions defensive back Tracy Walker recovering on the Lions’ 45-yard line. Ten plays later, the Lions converted a 37-yard Seibert field goal for a 10-0 advantage.

Punter Jack Fox converted a fake punt on a 17-yard pass to Bobby Price on fourth down to keep the drive alive.

The Rams (6-1) finally got on the scoreboard on the ensuing possession, using a 10-play, 67-yard drive that finished with a Matt Gay 33-yard field goal. The Lions responded with another field goal, this one from 47 yards, to lead 13-3.

Los Angeles took the lead on back-to-back touchdown passes by Stafford: an 11-yard fade route to Van Jefferson and a 2-yarder to Kupp for a 17-13 lead.

The Lions cut L.A.’s edge to 17-16 on a Seibert 41-yard field goal at the end of the first half.

After a big fourth-down stop by the defense, the Lions retook the lead 19-17 on Seibert’s fourth field goal with 1:43 left in the third quarter.

Los Angeles grabbed the lead back for good on Kupp’s second touchdown catch, this one on a 3-yard out route. Robert Woods got in the end zone for the 2-point conversion, and the Rams took a 25-19 lead with 14:04 left to play.

Gay added a 47-yard field goal for the final tally.

Jared Goff returns to L.A. to face Matt Stafford-led Rams

It’s the Jared Goff revenge game on Sunday as the Detroit Lions travel out West to take on the Los Angeles Rams.

The Cal product will face his former team for the first time since the Rams engineered a trade last offseason for strong-armed quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said the handling of Goff’s departure wasn’t exactly a smooth process.

“I wish there was better, clearer communication,” McVay said. “To say that it was perfectly handled on my end, I wouldn’t be totally accurate in that. I’ll never claim to be perfect, but I will try to learn from some things that I can do better, and I think that was one of them without a doubt.”

For the Rams, the move to securing Stafford’s services has gone well, as L.A. sits at 5-1, just below the 6-0 Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.

The same cannot be said for the Lions. At 0-6, Detroit is still looking for its first win under first-year head coach Dan Campbell.

But two of Detroit’s six losses came on last-second field goals, including an NFL-record 66-yarder by Justin Tucker in a 19-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.

“They all count the same, but we’ve got to find a way to win a game,” Goff said. “I’ve got to be better. We’ve got to be better. … It starts in practice. We can say all we want — that we want to start fast and do things on game day. But until we change habits and do things the right way consistently, we can’t really expect anything else.”

Through six games, Goff has thrown for 1,505 passing yards, completing 66.8 percent of passes with seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Goff will be playing at SoFi Stadium with fans in attendance for the first time.

“There was some disrespect felt towards the end, there was some sourness toward the end, and you still feel that you have a chip on your shoulder,” Goff said about facing the Rams. “But at the same time, when the game starts, if I let any of that come into how I’m going to play the game, that would be selfish.”

As NFL observers expected, Stafford has thrived in McVay’s offense. Through six games, Stafford is fourth in the NFL in passing yards (1,838), third in passing touchdowns (16) and second in passer rating (116.6).

Like Goff, Stafford will face his former team for the first time after spending 12 years in Detroit.

“It’s an NFL opponent coming into our building,” Stafford said. “Do I have a ton of history with them? Absolutely. In pregame am I going to be saying ‘hey’ to some old teammates, friends and the Ford family if they hopefully make the trip? Absolutely.

“I’ve got nothing but great relationships with the people over there and I have a lot of respect for the team and the organization. But it will be just another football game once the ball is snapped.”

Running back Sony Michel (shoulder) did not practice for the Rams on Wednesday, making his availability for Sunday’s game a question mark.

For the Lions, tight end TJ Hockenson (knee), defensive end Nick Williams (knee) and fullback Jason Cabinda (hip) did not practice.

Campbell also told reporters that left tackle Taylor Decker could miss the entire season due to a finger injury he suffered in September before the regular season started. Decker returned to practice this week, but reportedly still has discomfort.

Rams flatten Giants with huge second quarter

Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes during a dominating second quarter and the Los Angeles Rams remained undefeated on the road with a 38-11 victory Sunday over the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J.

Stafford was 22-of-28 passing on the day for 251 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. He threw second-quarter scores to Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Darrell Henderson Jr. as the Rams (5-1) turned an early deficit into a 28-3 halftime lead.

Henderson had 78 yards rushing on 21 carries and added a rushing touchdown during the second quarter, when the Los Angeles defense also forced three of four Giants turnovers.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was 29-of-51 passing for 242 yards and three interceptions after spending the week recovering from a concussion last weekend at Dallas. Jones also lost a fumble in his first-career four-turnover game.

Jones was missing wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle), who left during the Giants’ opening drive and did not return.

The Giants (1-5) were held to just 156 net yards through three quarters, with Rams safety Taylor Rapp intercepting a pair of Jones passes and the Los Angeles defense recording four sacks. The Giants’ Xavier McKinney had two interceptions.

The Giants looked like the dominating team early, going 73 yards on their opening drive and getting a 27-yard field goal from Graham Gano.

After the Rams’ first two drives of the day ended in punts, they found their stride. A 66-yard second-quarter drive ended with a 15-yard Woods TD catch and gave Los Angeles the lead for good at 7-3.

A 3-yard TD catch by Kupp on fourth down made it 14-3 following a Jones fumble at New York’s 12-yard line. That was followed by Rapp’s first interception to give the Rams another short field. They took advantage with a 14-yard drive capped by a 2-yard TD run from Henderson.

The Rams finished off their second-quarter scoring 33 seconds before halftime when Stafford threw a 25-yard TD pass to Henderson, completing a 73-yard drive for a 28-3 lead.

Kupp added a second TD reception with a 13-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter. Kupp finished with nine receptions for 130 yards.

The Giants finally reached the end zone with 6:21 remaining on a 4-yard run from Elijhaa Penny.

The Rams are 3-0 on the road.

Giants QB Daniel Jones clears concussion protcol, will play against Rams

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been cleared from concussion protocol and can play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

He was a full participant in practice Friday.

The third-year QB was put in the protocol following a hit at the goal line with 2:52 left in the second quarter of the Giants’ Week 5 loss at Dallas. Jones got to his feet but stumbled as his legs crossed attempting to return to the huddle.

In five games this season, Jones has completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,262 yards with four touchdown passes and an interception. He’s added two rushing touchdowns.

Jones will be without running back Saquon Barkley in the backfield, ruled out with an ankle injury. Wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) and linebacker Justin Hilliard (Achilles/injured reserve) are out.

For the Rams, star defensive lineman Aaron Donald was a full participant in Friday’s practice and will play Sunday. He missed practice on Wednesday over a knee issue. The Rams (4-1) have no injury concerns heading into Sunday’s game against the Giants (1-4) in East Rutherford, N.J.

Rams out to prove themselves vs. battered Giants

Tied for the second-best record in the NFL, yet with more to prove, the Los Angeles Rams head east to face the short-handed New York Giants as heavy favorites on Sunday afternoon.

Under the leadership of new quarterback Matthew Stafford, the Rams have been solid, approaching spectacular at times, in opening the season with a 4-1 record.

Los Angeles defeated the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-24 in Week 3 before getting thumped 37-20 by the undefeated Arizona Cardinals, only to rebound on the road last week 26-17 against the division-rival Seattle Seahawks.

Expected to be improved, the Rams’ passing offense is third in the NFL in total yards (1,551), second in yards per game (310.2) and tied for second in yards per attempt (9.2) as Stafford has been efficient with his throws.

But even with two of the best defensive players in the NFL in defensive tackle Aaron Donald and cornerback Jalen Ramsey, the Rams are 23rd in passing defense (271.0 yards per game) after leading that category last season (190.7 yards).

It doesn’t help that cornerback Darious Williams was placed on injured reserve after suffering a sprained ankle last Thursday against the Seahawks.

What does help is that the Rams are in a soft portion of the schedule with their next three games against the Giants (1-4), Detroit Lions (0-5) and Houston Texans (1-4).

“We’re not the team that I think we are if we’re not able to handle (the Giants) with that maturity and let that affect our process and our ability to focus and concentrate,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said when asked about a potential letdown during an easier part of the schedule.

“… There’s going to be a lot of work that needs to be done for us to play well enough to try to get our fifth win against a really competitive football team.”

The Giants are merely trying to find out who they are going to put on the field Sunday. Quarterback Daniel Jones exited Sunday’s 44-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys with a concussion and has not practiced this week, but he has not been ruled out for Sunday.

The Giants are expected to be without running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee). Wide receivers Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Sterling Shepherd (hamstring) did not play last week.

The Giants appeared to be on the rise with close defeats to the Washington Football Team and Atlanta Falcons. Then came some reward with a 27-21 road victory over the New Orleans Saints, followed by last week’s injury-marred loss.

Whether it is Jones or Mike Glennon at quarterback, more will be needed from the New York offense, which is only averaging 20.6 points per game.

Maximizing productivity with Donald breathing down the neck of either one has the Giants’ full attention.

“In terms of how to deal with (Donald), obviously there will be some things in the gameplan, that we’re going to go ahead through the week and see how they fit us, what we do with him,” Giants head coach Joe Judge said. “I think the biggest with him is when you get into the game, being flexible enough to change a plan based on what they are doing with him. … You can’t lock your knees based on what you’re looking to do.”

Donald did miss practice Wednesday after coming away with a knee contusion against the Seahawks, but he is expected to play Sunday, as is Rams kicker Matt Gay (sore ankle).

Rams put CB Darious Williams (ankle) on IR

The Los Angeles Rams put starting cornerback Darious Williams on injured reserve Tuesday with a sprained ankle.

Williams will have to miss at least three games. He sustained the injury in the Rams’ win over the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday.

“You’re losing an outstanding corner who has position-flex to play outside, to play inside,” Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday. “He’s got great ball skills. He’s got great concept trigger recognition, all the things that he did a great job of.”

In a corresponding move, the Rams activated offensive tackle Tremayne Anchrum off injured reserve. He sustained a knee injury in the preseason finale and was designated to return in late September.

Williams, 28, had 29 tackles and two passes defensed in five starts this season. He had four interceptions and 14 passes defensed in 16 games (10 starts) last season for the Rams. He has 88 tackles in 37 games (18 starts) in three-plus seasons with the Rams and Baltimore Ravens (2018).

He had played in nearly 100 percent of the Rams’ defensive snaps until getting hurt.

Rams hold off Seahawks after Russell Wilson exits

Matthew Stafford passed for 365 yards and a touchdown as the Los Angeles Rams defeated the host Seattle Seahawks 26-17 Thursday night.

The Seahawks were without quarterback Russell Wilson in the fourth quarter after he sustained an injury to the middle finger of his right hand, hitting it on the arm of Rams rusher Aaron Donald on a pass attempt.

Wilson finished the night 11 of 16 for 152 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Darrell Henderson Jr. rushed for a game-high 82 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries for the Rams (4-1). Stafford was 25 of 37, hitting Robert Woods 12 times for 150 yards.

The Seahawks (2-3) had a streak of nine consecutive victories in Thursday night games snapped.

Seattle pulled within 16-14 as backup Geno Smith engineered a 98-yard scoring drive early in the fourth quarter, capped by a 23-yard TD pass to DK Metcalf. Smith was 5 of 5 for 72 yards on the drive and finished 10 of 17 for 131 yards.

The Rams responded with their own a touchdown drive, as Sony Michel scored on a 2-yard run to make it 23-14 with 6:08 remaining.

Seattle’s Jason Myers kicked a 32-yard field goal with 2:45 left to make it 23-17.

The Seahawks got the ball back with 2:09 to play, but Smith’s pass on the next play was intercepted by Los Angeles safety Nick Scott after the intended receiver, Tyler Lockett, tripped over a defender.

Los Angeles’ Matt Gay kicked a 47-yard field goal with 24 seconds remaining to cap the scoring.

After trailing 7-3 at the intermission, the Rams took their first lead on their first possession of the second half, as Henderson scored on a 5-yard run.

The Rams scored again on their next drive, with Stafford hitting tight end Taylor Higbee on a 13-yard touchdown pass to make it 16-7 with 4:46 left in the quarter.

The Seahawks broke a scoreless tie with 9:04 left in the second quarter on a 19-yard pass from Wilson to Metcalf.

Gay’s 31-yarder pulled the Rams within 7-3 with 1:12 left in the half.

Seahawks leading rusher Chris Carson was inactive for the game because of a neck injury. Alex Collins carried 15 times for 47 yards in Carson’s absence.

Public backing Rams despite Seahawks’ TNF win streak

Pete Carroll is the master of the short week.

Under Carroll, the Seattle Seahawks are 10-1 in Thursday night games and have won their past nine.

That doesn’t bode well for the Los Angeles Rams, who will travel north for an NFC West showdown Thursday in Seattle.

The Rams (3-1) are coming off a 37-20 loss at home to the Arizona Cardinals in a first-place showdown on Sunday.

“We won’t allow one game to define us,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “It was not the outing we wanted from anybody, but fortunately we’ve got a short week to dust ourselves off and get back ready to roll.”

The Rams are 2.0-point favorites at BetRivers while the line has moved to Los Angeles -2.5 at DraftKings and PointsBet, with 78 percent of the bets and money backing the Rams at the former and a 77 and 72 percentage, respectively, at the later.

The Rams entered last week with the NFL’s top-rated defense, but they allowed Kyler Murray and the Cardinals to gain 465 yards of total offense, including 216 on the ground.

“That wasn’t up to our standard, for sure,” Los Angeles cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. “So whatever it may be, whatever it’s going to take, we need to figure it out ASAP.”

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, acquired in an offseason trade with Detroit, was 26 of 41 for 280 yards against the Cardinals, with two touchdowns and one interception, for a season-low passer rating of 89.5.

“When the quarterback in this league plays well, their team has an opportunity to win games,” Stafford said, “and I’ll make sure that on Thursday, I’m in the right place, ready to go.”

He said the quick turnaround might help the Rams forget their most lopsided loss since 2019.

“I think it’s easy when you have to turn the page so quickly,” Stafford said. “I haven’t played (the Seahawks) as much as a lot of other guys in this locker room have played them, so I’ll have some homework to do and make sure I’m up to speed.”

The Seahawks (2-2) avoided their first three-game losing streak in the Russell Wilson era with a 28-21 victory against host San Francisco on Sunday.

“We don’t lose three games in a row here,” Seattle left tackle Duane Brown said matter-of-factly.

Wilson passed for only 149 yards against the 49ers yet threw for two scores while compiling a 116.0 passer rating. He also rushed for a touchdown.

On Thursday, he will be wary of Ramsey, a two-time All-Pro.

“Jalen is one of those guys who doesn’t have many weaknesses,” Wilson said. “He’s really special. He’s a great football player, so you have to know where he is and what he’s doing and how he plays the game.”

The Rams possess similar regard for Wilson.

“I have a lot of respect for him, the way he plays the game,” said Los Angeles defensive tackle Aaron Donald, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year. “We’ve got to find a way to put pressure on him, find ways to affect him, so we can win this game.”

The 54-point Over/Under at BetRivers has seen split action, with the Over drawing 56.4 percent of the bets while the Under is being backed by 55.9 percent of the money. The Over/Under is also 54 points at the other two sportsbooks, with the market moving slightly from 54.5 at PointsBet.

Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has been backed by 12.8 percent of the bets to score the first touchdown of the game at +1150 at BetRivers. Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (-152) leads the anytime touchdown market with 7.2 percent of the handle.

The defending NFC West-champion Seahawks will look to reverse a 30-20 wild-card playoff loss to the Rams on Jan. 9 in Seattle.

Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr., who rushed for 89 yards on 14 carries against Arizona after missing the previous week with a rib injury, got dinged up again, but McVay said he should be able to play in Seattle. Henderson was limited in practice Tuesday, as were safety Taylor Rapp (ankle) and tight ends Tyler Higbee (ankle) and Johnny Mundt (shoulder).

For the Seahawks, running back Chris Carson (neck) and wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) missed practice Tuesday. Carson is expected to be a game-time decision.
