The Rams held off a furious Buccaneers fourth quarter comeback that saw Tampa Bay cut their lead down from 31-20 to 37-32. With the Rams’ 37-32 win, they move to 2-1 on the year and hold the division lead in the NFC West.

L.A. Dodgers: The Dodgers swept a four game set against division-rival Colorado Rockies to begin the week. Los Angeles backup infielder and ex-Rockie Charlie Culberson hit a walk-off home run on Sept. 25 to seal the deal and help the Dodgers clinch the NL West division title. The beloved Vin Scully called the dramatic finale of the series sweep as his final game as the Dodgers’ color commentator. The Dodgers hit the road on Sept. 27 for a matchup against the San Diego Padres with the division title already in hand. The Dodgers could not keep their winning momentum as they lost 7-1.
