The Los Angeles Rams are facing an uphill climb at Lambeau Field, but they are not going quietly into the night. The Rams trailed the Green Bay Packers 25-10 in the third quarter before finally finding the end zone with 1:45 to go in the quarter. They drove down into a goal to go situation and Cam Akers put together a big-boy run to get into the end zone.

Trailing by 9 after the score, the Rams attempted a two-point conversion to cut the lead to a touchdown. Head coach Sean McVay dug into his bag of tricks and called a hook-and-lateral pass play. Jared Goff threw a quick little hitch to Van Jefferson who was getting blocking help from Tyler Higbee. Jefferson the pitched the ball to Akers who had been trailing him and the running back found the end zone to cut the Packers lead to 25-18.

Cam Akers is having himself a heck of a game. He has 82 rushing yards and the touchdown. Van Jefferson hasn’t been too shabby himself, catching a touchdown on three receptions and 24 yards.
