The Rams have struggled in the red zone so far, but they’ve at least scored on defense.
Los Angeles had to settle for a field goal after reaching the Arizona one-yard line when the offense committed a pair of false start penalties. That meant a 16-play drive resulted in just three points.
But Arizona couldn’t take advantage of its extra possession, as guard Justin Pugh was flagged for holding in the end zone. That gave the Rams two points and the ball.
Los Angeles still trails 7-5 with 2:59 in the second quarter after the offense couldn’t get anything going following the free kick.
