Rams top Raiders 33-13 in season opener

The Rams appeared out of sync from the start, as the Raiders amassed 254 yards of total offense in the first half, including 113 receiving yards by tight end Jared Cook, and took a 13-10 lead into halftime.

Guru: I'm just concerned that the ball's turned into a hot potato a little bit. Getty Images Los Angeles Rams Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers (90) sack Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.

Silver: Well, I will say that I talked to one Rams defender who basically told me that.

"When you can run the ball like they ran in the second half, it's very hard to rush the passer, " Gruden said, via James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area. "And that's a pretty strong charge".

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden speaks during a news conference at Oakland Raiders headquarters on January 9, 2018 in Alameda, California.

Peters and Aqib Talib shared this video on the Rams' Twitter account in the locker room, too. Gruden, as he gets ready for his opener, sat down with his old colleagues at ESPN and, unsurprisingly, pulled the "he didn't want to be here" card when asked about Mack and why the dominant defensive end was dealt.

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.

Monday's game was the first that the Rams' new defense played together competitively. But contract talks never got going, and so Mack was shipped off for the best offer out there.
