Raiders vs. Rams: Social Media Instant Reaction

The Los Angeles Rams downed the Oakland Raiders 19-15 Saturday in a mostly forgettable game – unless your name is Chris Warren III. The team’s return to its former home – the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum – ended the same way it did in 1994 . . . with a loss.

The Raiders misfired offensively often in their loss to their regular season Week 1 opponent, but it was the big, bruising running back Warren who was the lone star on offense. Warren finished with 18 carries, 110 yards and one touchdown.

There were bright spots on defense for the Raiders as linebackers Marquel Lee and Nicholas Morrow made strong statements as they fight for starting roles with veterans such as Derrick Johnson.

As usual, penalties were another trouble spot for the Raiders. They finished with 10 penalties for a whopping 101 yards.
