An easy win for the Rams, marked by them gaining more yards on the ground (213) than the Bucs did in total offense (201).  Los Angeles moved the ball at will at times and had a 21-0 lead at half-time on the back of accurate passing from Jim Everett, and Charles White's rushing that led the NFL at that point in the season.  Vinny played the final two series in preparation for his first NFL start the following week in New Orleans.
