Given the score, maybe the Falcons will be able to exorcise some demons against the Rams on Sunday.
But that feels pretty unlikely, as Los Angeles leads Atlanta 28-3 midway through the third quarter.
The Rams held a 21-3 lead at halftime and got the ball first in the third period. It didn’t take L.A. long to go down the field and extend the lead, with the team using a 10-play, 75-yard drive to get back in the end zone. Running back Cam Akers converted third-and-1 at the Atlanta 31 with a 3-yard run. Then quarterback Matthew Stafford hit receiver Cooper Kupp out of the backfield for a 10-yard TD on third-and-4.
Kupp has now started the game catching all seven of his targets for 76 yards with a pair of TDs. He had a 3-yard score at the end of the first half.
Stafford is 19-of-22 passing for 188 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
