A late fieldgoal gave the Rams victory in Week 2 although a late Buc drive was halted by an injury to Mike Evans that caused a 10-second run-off and left the Bucs out of time at the Ram 32-yard line.    “When you end the game that way you have to look at ways to get one more play in,’’ Lovie Smith said. “But again, that’s one play. We had so many other opportunities we didn’t capitalize on.’’
