The Rams couldn’t have pre-planned a better season opener than what took place Sunday afternoon, when they got points on their first drive and never looked back in a 46-9 victory over Indianapolis at the Coliseum.

It was a shockingly dominating day for the Rams, who moved the ball well on offense, for a total of 443 yards, and were opportunistic on defense, as they returned two interceptions for touchdowns.

Lamarcus Joyner’s 29-yard touchdown return, midway through the third quarter, gave the Rams a 37-3 lead. That’s 37 points, equal to as many as the Rams scored in any full game last season.
