The Rams are missing three players from their defensive line and LeSean McCoy has taken advantage of their absence.

The Bills running back ran nine times for 111 yards in the first half of Sunday’s game, including a 17-yard scamper that helped put the Bills in position for a Dan Carpenter field goal just before halftime. That kick put the Bills up 16-13 over the Rams at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

McCoy also helped set up the first two Bills scores of the game. He had 26 yards on the opening drive, which ended with a Justin Hunter touchdown catch, and he ran 53 yards to set up a Mike Gillislee touchdown run later in the first quarter.

That touchdown came after the only turnover of the game, a Todd Gurley fumble in Bills territory that ended one Rams scoring chance. The home side has moved the ball well for most of the game, but had to settle for a pair of field goals after stalling in the red zone. They finally got in the end zone when Gurley scored from a yard out late in the second quarter, which marked the first regular season touchdown at the Coliseum for the Rams since 1979.
