    TAMPA, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Rams scored their first touchdown of the season in perhaps the most encouraging way possible: on a 44-yard pass from quarterback?Case Keenum to wide receiver?Brian Quick.The play came on the first drive of the Rams Week 3 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from Raymond James Stadium on Sunday afternoon.Quick, who almost lost his spot on the roster because of an inability to secure the football, easily beat his defender off the ball on a post route. Keenum, whom many believe shouldnt even be the starting quarterback, perfectly hit him in stride.The hookup was set up on play action with the Rams star running back, Todd Gurley, a man who entered Week 3 looking to get going after gaining just 98 yards in the first two games. Play action was also a useful weapon for the Rams in last Sundays 9-3 win over the Seattle Seahawks.Keenums pass to Quick ended an eight-play, 75-yard drive that saw the Rams convert on two third downs. They entered the week as the only NFL team that had yet to score a touchdown, and wouldve become the first team since the 1976 expansion Bucs to go three weeks without one had they not scored on Sunday.Their first drive resulted in the first Rams touchdown while affiliated with Los Angeles since Christmas Eve of 1994.It was really big, Keenum, speaking after a 37-32 win, said of getting in the end zone on the first drive. I wanted the ball coming out. Coach [Jeff] Fisher said he wanted the ball. We wanted to go put some points on the board. We converted on some third downs, which were really big coming out of the gate, and [Quick] ran a great route on the past and spread it out there. He went and got it. It was great.

Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Dalvin Cook Vikings Jersey .

The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Torrance Gibsons once-promising, turbulent career at Ohio State appears to be over already. But Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer isnt ready to close the door just yet.Gibson, a former five-star recruit, signed a junior college letter of intent with Mississippi Gulf Coast on Tuesday. He was suspended for the season in August, which drew public disagreement from Meyer because the punishment was issued by the university instead of the Ohio State athletic department.He came to see me, and I love Torrance, Meyer said Thursday. Very unfortunate, the whole situation. I dont think theres anything finalized.I can assure you, as we always do, we are doing whats in the best interest of the student-athlete.It appears Gibsons next chapter in college is likely going to be away from the Buckeyes, though, after Mississippi Gulf Coast coach Chad Huff welcomed him publicly to his program earlier in the week.We are looking forward to having Torrance join our football program, Huff said. We are confident in his abilities on the field and his character off the field, and we expect him to contribute to our team and the Gulf Coast community.Ohio State also had great expectations for Gibson when he signed in 2015 after a high-profile recruitment. He arrived as a dual-threat quarterback and moved to wide receiver; his dynamic athleticism and a logjam of passers ahead of him on the depth chart necessitated the position switch.dddddddddddd.But the transition never seemed to be going smoothly, either on or off the field for the Florida native. Gibson never stepped on the field as a true freshman as he struggled to find consistency with his new responsibilities as a wideout, and he was suspended for a game during his redshirt season.The hype that surrounded his recruitment resurfaced during practices in April, when Gibson capped off a productive month with six catches for 50 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the spring game. But again, that didnt last long with Ohio State announcing his semester-long suspension shortly before the season opener.It was not from the athletic department or football, Meyer said at the time. I disagree with it.Meyer didnt provide any details then on what transpired or what, if anything, could be done about it, given his opposition to the discipline. Ohio State has still not commented on the nature of the violation.But nearing the date when Gibson could re-enroll as originally anticipated, it appears the plans have changed, leaving plenty of untapped potential with the Buckeyes as he heads elsewhere.As far as his ceiling, hes as talented as anybody Ive been around, wide receivers coach Zach Smith said before the season. The ceiling is extremely high. ' ' '
