The Matthew Stafford era in Los Angeles couldn’t have gotten off to a better start. The Rams and their new quarterback hosted the Bears on Sunday night at SoFi Stadium and quickly put the pedal down, immediately striking for a 67-yard touchdown on their first drive.
The Bears kept things interesting by pulling to within six points twice – including in the third quarter when the score was 20-14, but the Rams scored the final 14 points and came away with a 34-14 victory at home.
Stafford was fantastic in his debut, posting a near-perfect 156.1 passer rating with three touchdowns and only six incompletions. The defense was solid, too, in its first game without Brandon Staley.
Here’s everything you need to know from Sunday’s season-opening win.
