Oakland quarterback Mike Glennon looked good early and threw three straight completions that gained 56 yards on Oakland’s opening drive. DeAndre Washington scored on a 7-yard run.

The Raiders were in the red zone in the second quarter when Glennon threw an interception near the goal line.

“I was thinking about calling timeout beforehand and I should have done that,” Glennon said. “It was a bad throw.”

Greg Zuerlein made a 36-yard field goal in the first half for the Rams.


Antonio Brown remains a topic even when he’s not around the team. The heralded wide receiver has been absent from training camp due to a case of frostbite he suffered while undergoing cryotherapy in France. Brown has also reportedly filed a grievance with the NFL over a league rule that prevents him from wearing his 10-year-old helmet.

“I support this guy,” Gruden said. “I don’t know what anybody’s writing or what anybody thinks but this foot injury wasn’t his fault. This was a total accident. I know some people are smarting at it but it’s really not a laughing matter.

“The helmet thing is a personal matter to him. He has a strong feeling about what he’s worn on his head, and we’re supporting him. We understand the league’s position as well, so we’re in a tough spot.”
