Todd Gurley on late-game decision: 'Forget fantasy'

Share

This was one of the best games of this week, and that should be a top matchup next week.

The Packers are now 3-3-1, and they still have road games against the Patriots, Seahawks, Vikings, and Bears.

But when the kick came, Montgomery fielded it a couple of yards in the end zone - and brought it out. "We got the win, so that's all that matters".

Both teams rallied from 10-point deficits to take a lead in front of a rollicking, bipartisan Coliseum crowd, but the Rams extended their best start since 1969 by capitalizing on two crushing special-teams mistakes by Green Bay. Not only did he only bring it out to the 20 before he was tackled, costing his team five valuable yards, Rams linebacker Ramik Wilson jarred the ball loose, Montgomery fumbled, and Wilson recovered it.

Josh Reynolds caught two touchdown passes for Los Angeles, while Gurley rushed for 114 yards and scored a touchdown in his franchise record-tying 11th consecutive game on a 30-yard pass in the third quarter. It all worked out in favor of the Rams, as they secured a 29-27 victory to improve to 8-0 on the season.

Mason Crosby knocked home the extra point to give the Packers a one-point lead.

After the first quarter, the tide started shifting and the Rams offense started clicking. Had they taken their chances, they might not have needed a game-winning drive at the end.

The Green Bay Packers faced off against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8 of the 2018 National Football League season. The Packers lost six yards on a three-and-out on their final possession. Brown for gain of 23 yards and a first down Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. The veteran defensive back caught a pass from Johnny Hekker on a fake punt, and he later downed a punt at the Green Bay 1 to set up the Rams' defense for its safety.
