Late field goal secures NFL win for Rams

Matt Gay booted a 40-yard field goal with 2 minutes 36 seconds left and Jordan Fuller grabbed his second interception of the game less than a minute later as the Los Angeles Rams notched a 27-24 NFL victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jared Goff completed 39 of 51 passes for 376 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions as the Rams (7-3) won for the third time in their past four games.

Robert Woods had 12 receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown while Cooper Kupp caught 11 passes for 145 yards.

Tom Brady completed 26 of 48 passes for 216 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Buccaneers (7-4), who lost for the second time in the past three games.

The two TD passes lifted Brady’s career count to 566, allowing him to pass injured New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (565) for the most in NFL history.

Mike Evans and Chris Godwin caught scoring passes for Tampa Bay, which was outgained 413 yards to 251.

Gay was making his Los Angeles debut, and the winning field goal came against team that employed him last season.

The Buccaneers had time to recover, but Brady made a poor downfield throw and Fuller easily intercepted the pass at the Los Angeles 31-yard line and returned it 6 yards with 1:49 left as the Rams went on to the win.

The contest at Tampa featured an all-Black officiating crew for the first time in NFL history.

Leading the way was Jerome Boger, who is in his 15th season as a referee and 17th overall as an NFL official.
