Rams defense makes history (thanks to bad Colts offense)

AP

The new-look Rans have started things off with an impressive win over the Colts, thanks in large part to a suffocating defense. Or maybe a suck-offating Colts offense.

Either way, the Rams became the first team in league history to rack up a pair of pick-sixes and a safety in a season opener. That’s a stat cultivated and circulated by the NFL.

The touchdowns off of interceptions were scored by cornerback Trumaine Johnson and safety Lamarcus Joyner. Defensive end Morgan Fox added the safety.

One other team started a season with a pair of interceptions returned for a touchdown. The Vikings did it 10 years ago against the Falcons in the game that also featured the debut of Adrian Peterson.

  1. There is absolutely nothing “impressive” about beating the Colts…especially when they apparently prepared for the 49ers.

  2. Years of poor personnel decisions have finally caught up with the Colts. Take 2015 when despite not having a great need at WR they draft Philip Dorsett when someone like Landon Collins was still on the draft board. They just haven’t added much talent up front on both sides of the ball and even Luck coming back is likely not going to be enough to save this season.
