Los Angeles Rams: Grades for Week 1 against the Raiders

"Very disappointing", Gruden said after the Raiders were outscored 23-0 after halftime.

And to be fair, there were some positives to take away from Monday night, mainly the play of the team - both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball - in the first 30 minutes of play.

"I did the Beast Mode", Peters told reporters after the game.

"I think that tempo kind of caught us off guard", Peters said. "And that's a pretty strong charge". New head coach Jon Gruden may not want to go down that road with Carr, though, and may prefer to look elsewhere by drafting his own guy.

Jalen Richard gets involved in the passing game - Throughout the preseason, we saw running back Jalen Richard get involved in the passing game, and that trend carried over the start of the regular season as well. So, the results for the Minnesota Vikings' 29-19 win over the New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos' 24-21 victory over the LA Chargers were based on just 48 of the usual 56 markets that make up the first round of ratings.

Aaron Donald, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, held out of training camp and reported 10 days before the opener after signing a six-year, $135-million contract extension, to end a contract dispute that dated to 2017. But contract talks never got going, and so Mack was shipped off for the best offer out there.
