As the Monday night matchup between the Raiders and Rams progressed, the difference between the coaches on each sideline started to show until the Rams put the game out of reach in a 33-13 win.

After trailing 10-7 in what was Jon Gruden’s return to coaching the Raiders, the Rams took the game over in the second half, outscoring the home team 23-0 in that span. Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips made adjustments that never made Derek Carr comfortable, baiting him into throwing three interceptions, including a 50 yard pick-six to Marcus Peters with two minutes remaining.

On the offensive side, Jared Goff threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns while Todd Gurley carried the ball 20 times for 108 yards in the opening game of Sean McVay’s second year at the helm.
