TAMPA, Fla. -- Two weeks after looking like an offensively challenged team staring at a potentially long season, the Los Angeles Rams are off to their best start in 10 years.Theyve even got some touchdowns to show for the progress theyve made since being shut out in their first game after relocating back to the West Coast after a 21-year stay in St. Louis.All I know is we got Arizona at Arizona next week, coach Jeff Fisher said after Sundays 37-32 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. None of them are easy, but well take it.Case Keenum threw for the franchises first TD as the L.A. Rams since 1994 , and Robert Quinn tackled Jameis Winston from behind 5 yards short of the end zone on the games final play to seal the teams second straight win.In between, Todd Gurley scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, Ethan Westbrooks returned a fumble caused by Quinn 77 yards for a TD, Tavon Austin made a nice nifty move to turn a deep throw into a 43-yard scoring play, and the Rams (2-1) even weathered a 69-minute delay caused by a thunderstorm passing over Raymond James Stadium.I think we are in a good spot, Keenum said. I think we are getting better each week, which is what you want to do.Tampa Bay (1-2), meanwhile, has lost two straight since Winstons sparkling performance in a season-opening win over Atlanta.Winston threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns, but looked tentative on the games last play. He never took off full speed and was wrestled down after a 10-yard gain.The Bucs have yielded 101 points through three games, and the defense gave up two more plays of 40-plus yards against the Rams.The lesson our team has to learn -- every week is a battle. Our culture is not where it needs to be. ... I put that squarely on my shoulders, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said.Theres something about our culture that let games like this get away, Koetter added. Weve got to get over that hump.Some things to know about the Rams and Bucs moving forward:RESiLiENT BUNCH: The Rams were far from perfect against the Buccaneers. Keenum threw a first-quarter interception that was returned by linebacker Kwon Alexander for a touchdown, and Kenny Britts second-quarter fumble led to another Tampa Bay TD. Los Angeles wasnt fazed, though, and forced a couple of turnovers -- ex-Buc Mark Barrons second quarter interception and Quinns fourth quarter, sack/strip that caused the fumble Westbrooks scooped up -- to score themselves.Turnovers hurt us early, but we go get two big plays on defense ... and that kind of balanced things out, Fisher said.WIDE LEFT: Bucs rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo had a tough day and may be a hot topic of conversation as the team prepares to face defending Super Bowl champion Denver next Sunday. The second-round draft pick out of Florida State struggled early in the preseason, hooked an extra-point to the left after Tampa Bays first touchdown and later missed a 41-yard field goal attempt wide left, drawing boos from the announced crowd of 55,009. The team has drawn some criticism for the decision to use such a high draft pick to select a kicker. If he makes the two kicks he missed Sunday, the argument could be made that the Bucs could have employed different strategy and/or might not have needed a touchdown at the end to win.Times like this are going to happen, Aguayo said, adding his confidence isnt shaken. Im excited for next week, to move on.BACK ON TRACK?: Los Angeles RB Todd Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards and 10 TDs as a rookie a year ago, however he averaged just 2.7 yards per attempts while running for 98 yards on 36 carries in the Rams first two games. He was more effective Sunday, even though he only averaged 3.1 yards on his way to 85 yards on 28 carries.Hes not there yet, but not because of Todd Gurley personally, Fisher said, adding the team has to do a better job converting third downs and doing other things to create more opportunities for the second-year pro.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Ducks Jerseys .

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- When the U.S. and Mexico meet in a World Cup qualifier Friday night in Ohio, the rivals will play against a backdrop of amped-up political vitriol provoked by Donald Trump during his successful presidential campaign.Winning this swing state with 52 percent of the vote was one of the keys to Trumps victory Tuesday. During a contentious campaign, the billionaire promised to build a wall on the Mexican border to help stem illegal immigration.Even before Trumps triumph, a raucous, pro-American crowd was expected in Columbus, where the U.S. has beaten El Tri 2-0 in four consecutive home qualifiers.I certainly think theres an added layer to this game, given everything thats gone on the last few months, U.S. captain Michael Bradley said. We have total respect for everybody and a real appreciation not just for the Mexican-Americans but for the people from around the world who come and make a new life for themselves in our country.Players said Thursday they dont think the political climate will affect the usually dialed-up intensity between the two sides. There is already so much at stake at the beginning of the final round of qualifying, known as the hexagonal.I would hope not, you know? midfielder Alejandro Bedoya said. I know there are people out there who would like to politicize this game, but I dont see the need for it. Its a rivalry -- U.S. vs. Mexico. Its nothing more than that. Were going to try to kick each others butt on the field.Bedoya said he hopes the fans respect the Mexican team, as well.Im not really that concerned, midfielder Sacha Kljestan said. I think the message is that we be positive with each other and really come together, like we always do. Im not worried.Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, a native of Argentina, sidestepped questions about the political overtones. Mexico didnt make its playyers available to comment Thursday.dddddddddddd was first an exchange student, then I was an immigrant in the United States trying to get a great opportunity and work, and work as hard as any American. So I can sympathize with how the Mexicans feel about the whole situation, Osorio said. Nevertheless my efforts are all directed toward winning the game and nothing else. Im really not here to discuss any political issues.The match is the opener of the 10-game final round of qualifying in the North and Central American and Caribbean region. The top three nations qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and the No. 4 team advances to a playoff against the fifth-place Asian team for another berth.

He saved two penalty kicks during the Colorado Rapids shootout victory against the L.A. Galaxy on Sunday, sending the club to its first Western Conference Final since 2010.Mexico has gone 12-1-2 since Osorio, a former Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls coach, took over in October 2015 -- the loss was 7-0 to Chile in the Copa America quarterfinals in June.We have big respect for them, Bradley said. And weve always prided ourselves on the fact that playing against them has always brought out the best in us. And we have guys who live to play in these types of games. History shows that the team that wins is the team that has more guys who are able to embrace the magnitude of the game and make big plays when it counts.---Follow Mitch Stacy at http://twitter.com/mitchstacy Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
