In their Christmas Day showdown, the Los Angeles Rams gave the Denver Broncos a lump of coal and then some, with the defending Super Bowl winners winning 51-14 in a holiday thrashing.
The Rams defense also showed up as Baker Mayfield, Cam Akers, and the offense struggled against a defense that was third in the NFL in terms of points and yards allowed.
Six sacks were delivered to Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, including two from Larrell Murchison and 1.5 from Michael Hoecht. In addition, Leonard Floyd and Bobby Wagner contributed one, and Jonah Williams was given credit for a half-sack. Wilson took 12 blows from Los Angeles.
In the game, Brett Rypien threw one interception, while Wilson threw three. With an 85-yard pick-six off Rypien, Cobie Durant fueled the fire. Durant had already intercepted Wilson earlier in the game, making this his second. Wagner and Jalen Ramsey each had one interception.
