One snap in and the St. Louis Rams were already down a touchdown to Robert Griffin III and his team. In the middle of the second quarter, the deficit was 15 points.
RG3 has proven for the second game in a row that he's lightning fast and can throw footballs with precision.
Griffin threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third in an effective follow-up to an impressive debut, when he became the first rookie quarterback to throw for at least 300 yards and win a season opener. He was sacked only once but hit many times.
"They dared us to run and we ran it. We moved the ball and we scored points," Griffin said. "We just didn't score enough points. Like I said, if teams want to get physical with us, or per se me, then bring it on."
The Rams, however, didn't let a victory slip away. Even without star running back Steven Jackson, they flexed their muscles.
Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns, Danny Amendola tied an NFL record with 12 first-half receptions, and after the break the Rams contained an offense that put up 40 points in Week 1 for a 31-28 victory on Sunday.
"You get caught up in watching the scoreboard and get caught up in negative plays and things, you've got no chance to win," coach Jeff Fisher said after the Rams took the home opener. "So, you don't watch the scoreboard, you just go play. "You make plays and the scoreboard changes."
