Anonymous Rams defender said Derek Carr was 'scared to take shots'

Jon Gruden Wants You To Believe Khalil Mack 'Didn't Want To Be Here'

Several Rams reacted to their first win of the season on Twitter following Monday night's 33-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

Rams head coach Sean McVay may have dodged a bullet having kept his star players sidelined for the preseason.

"When you can run the ball like they ran in the second half, it's very hard to rush the passer, " Gruden said, via James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area.

The defense also paid dividends as new Ram Marcus Peters got on the scoreboard with a 50-yard interception return for the score. The Raiders quarterback completed 27 passes, but starting wide receivers Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson and Seth Roberts combined for just five catches for 43 yards. And there's still plenty of room for improvement.

In fact. Bill seems downright pissed over the move - even questioning how Oakland was able to get Derek Carr's mega deal done so quickly but couldn't get one for Mack.

Donald, who held out of training camp for a second consecutive season, said that he was prepared to play, but was unsatisfied with his performance.

"It was a tale of two halves, and obviously we did not take care of the ball and that was a critical part of this football game".

NFL.com's Jeremy Bergman came up with three takeaways from the Rams-Raiders Monday night showdown. "That's what's being missed here", he told ESPN, his former employer, after the Raiders traded the dynamic pass rusher to the Bears just before the start of the season.
