NFC West Scoreboard

Arizona had a bye so there was only one other NFC West team in action, and that was the Los Angeles Rams playing in Miami. It was the first-career start for Tua Tagovailoa. But it was the Dolphin’s defense and special teams that stole the show.

Andrew Van Ginkel scooped up a Jared Goff fumble and returned it 78-yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Less than 2-minutes later, Jakeem Grant returned a punt 88-yards for a touchdown and Miami beat the Rams 28-17.

Seattle is in 1st place in the NFC West at 6-and-1. Arizona is second at 5-and-2. L-A is 3rd at 5-and-3 while the 49ers sit in last place at 4-and-4.
