Rams 24, Browns 6

Rams rookie revs up fans in easy win

ST. LOUIS — Todd Gurley heard the fans chanting his name. The rookie is commanding that kind of attention.

Gurley rushed for 128 yards and his first two NFL touchdowns to help the Rams put away the Browns.

"It's not all me," he said. "We've just got to keep improving and executing."

Last week, coach Jeff Fisher said Gurley wasn't yet 100 percent. But the former Georgia standout looked pretty dominant Sunday, hurdling tacklers on at least two occasions and churning for extra yards up the middle.

Coming off its bye, St. Louis had four sacks and recovered four fumbles. Defensive end William Hayes had two sacks and strips of Browns quarterback Josh McCown.

Johnny Manziel got mop-up duty for the Browns after McCown left, favoring his right shoulder, with about four minutes left. McCown said he was hurt on the second sack/fumble when he was hit on the elbow.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
