All the Los Angeles Rams’ special teams unit had to do was catch a punt. That’s it. Just wave for the fair catch so Jeff Fisher’s offense can figure out a new way to go three-and-out. Instead, Pharoh Cooper had to deal with his own teammate laying a hit on him.
Despite the best efforts of Blake Countess, officials sorted through the mess and gave Los Angeles the ball. That possession ended with a Jared Goff pass being tipped, and picked by Malcolm Butler.
