The Rams and Packers are finishing their preseason slate by giving significant playing time to those who will provide depth on their respective rosters. After two quarters, Los Angeles trails Green Bay 14-3. Here are some notes from the first half.
As expected, the Rams and Packers both did not dress their starters for Thursday night's game. While Los Angeles did not announce its players who would not dress, Green Bay put out a list of 28 — including star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
None of Los Angeles' starters on offense or defense played in the contest.
Defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks had the Rams' best defensive play of the first half when he sacked Packers quarterback Brett Hundley.
The defensive lineman, now in his fourth season, broke through the line on what looked like Green Bay attempting to set up a screen. Instead, Westbrooks took Hundley down in the backfield for his first sack of the preseason.
DAVIS CONTINUES TO MAKE PLAYS
Running back Justin Davis has been the star of the Rams' preseason. He came in leading the team with 92 yards rushing through the first three games, and continued to make plays early on against Green Bay.
For Los Angeles' longest play of the first quarter, Davis caught a screen pass from quarterback Dan Orlovsky and took it 19 yards down the right side of the field.
