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.

    CLEARWATER — Roughly 16 hours after a ninth-inning collapse against East Carolina in the American Athletic Conference's double-elimination baseball tournament, USF returned to Spectrum Field presumably set for a reboot.

    It simply got booted instead.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie INF Daniel Robertson has earned raves for his defensive play at both second base and shortstop, making a highlight play almost every game he starts, including one in the fifth inning Friday.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Twins game

    RF Steven Souza is always, shall we say, entertaining. In the second, he made an impressive running, leaping catch. In the seventh, he made either the worst dive for a ball a good 15 feet away or was trying for the best deke. In the eighth, he hit a massive homer.

  5. Rowdies anxious to get back on track

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — Having already played four matches in less than two weeks' time, the Rowdies have to turn around again on short rest to host Saint Louis FC today.

    And they're actually glad about it.
