Sean McVay's locker room speech, Marcus Peters earns game ball

Sean McVay's locker room speech, Marcus Peters earns game ball

Carr threw for 303 yards on 29 of 40 passing. "You know how things go".

Then with less than two minutes to play, Peters, acquired in an offseason trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, intercepted a pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to put the game out of reach.

The only way this line shifts in the Cardinals' direction is if a Rams player gets hurt during this week of practice, but other than that, Los Angeles will remain strong favorites over Arizona.

While at first glance the difference between this year and 2017 may seem small, it is important to remember that due to the chaos from Hurricane Irma last year not all markets reported in with early numbers. And there's still plenty of room for improvement.


Carr turned in a poor performance in Monday's game against the Rams, and he essentially threw his team out of the game with a few very bad interceptions. The Rams have a tough defense, so don't panic yet on Carr.

After having an excellent start to the game, the Los Angeles Rams made gameplan adjustments during halftime, and it caused the Raiders not to be able to get any pressure on quarterback Jared Goff.

While the Silver and Black ultimately now own a 0-1 record, there's no need to overreact just yet - one game won't define any National Football League team, the Raiders included. They have some talented people out there.

NFL.com's Jeremy Bergman came up with three takeaways from the Rams-Raiders Monday night showdown. Here's a look at the snap counts from the first week of the season.
