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.
