A needless injury to Harris. Happens on a punt return with 1 second to go in the half.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. That sucks. Seems like they are getting him up, though. Maybe he had the wind knocked out of him with that shot to the back?

Why are they even bothering to try and return there? There's 12 seconds left at the snap. The odds of Harris returning a punt into at least FG range before the clock runs out has to be less than 1 percent or so. Why wouldn't you put 11 guys on the line of scrimmage and go for the block? The worst thing that happens is you get a 15 yard roughing penalty so the offense could chuck one close to the end zone (if they even bothered to choose to since Jeff Fisher is one of the worst tactical coaches ever).

Man, this is unbelievably boring. I usually watch the Red Zone on Sundays if I'm watching football, with other games on my satellite TV's. Watching one game is painful, the interruptions are constant.

It also just hit me that this game started at 6:30am in Los Angeles. In their first year back. During what would be a home game in LA with the Giants. Brilliant.

I'm guessing the Rams are a low-revenue team (not a contender, shitty venue without much premium seating, seats at the new place will be allocated by PSLs regardless of whether you buy STs at the Mausoleum). So if you're going to have more than one game in London (such that someone besides JAX has to give up a home game), LA is a sensible pick.

I had to think twice with the Mausoleum comment; used to that being a term for the Oakland Coliseum. Giants give the Rams another try.
