Rams 9, Jets 6

Late pick gives Rams the edge

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Alec Ogletree saw the ball zipping his way and knew he needed to get his hands on it.

The Rams linebacker intercepted Jets quarterback Bryce Petty with less than two minutes left, lifting the Rams.

Petty made his first NFL start in place of injured Ryan Fitzpatrick but couldn't get much going against Los Angeles' defense.

After getting the ball with 2:55 left and down by three, Petty tried to lead the Jets down the field. But on second and 7 from the 42 yard line, his pass to Quincy Enunwa was picked off by Ogletree, who took it out of the receiver's hands. Enunwa tried to wrestle it away from the linebacker to no avail.

"I had that area of zone, and I was playing the receiver," Ogletree said. "I saw him throw the ball. We kind of tied up, and I was able to rip it out from him and make the play."

The game featured 15 punts, eight by the Jets. New York finished with 296 yards of total offense, Los Angeles 280.

Though Rams fans have been clamoring for No. 1 overall pick QB Jared Goff to play, Case Keenum went 17-of-30 for 165 yards but had no turnovers after throwing eight interceptions in his previous four games. "No, I'm not going into the quarterback situation," coach Jeff Fisher said.
