    The Los Angeles Rams scored not one, but two touchdowns on special teams as they came from behind to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 27-17, on Sunday in North Florida. 

    Pharoh Cooper got things started when he returned the opening kickoff 103 yards to help put the Rams in sole possession of first place in the NFC West.

    Later in the first half, the Rams blocked a punt and retruned it for a score as they overcame a 14-10 deficit to take a 24-14 lead into the half.

    After scoring just 10 points against the Seahawks at home last week, the offense rebounded behind running back Todd Gurley who had 116 yards rushing on 23 carries.

    Quarterback Jared Goff was 11-for-21 for 124 yards and a touchdown. Robert Woods led all Rams receivers with five catches for 70 yards. 

    Rookie Leonard Fournette set the tone for the Jaguars when he broke open the game with a 75 yard rushing touchdown, his sixth touchdown on the ground this season.

    Entering Sunday's game, Fournette had rushed for 465 yards in five games. He finished with 130 yards in the game, giving him a total of 595 yards through six games, just a yard shy of averaging over 100 yards per game.

    The Rams remain undefeated on the road this season, improving to 3-0 away from the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. Greg Zuerlein's 29-yard field goal with 2:32 remaining in the game, helped seal the victory.

    Blake Bortles lost an opportunity to tie the game in the final quarter when he fumbled the ball on one play and threw an interception on the next.

    Bortles finished 23-for-35 with 241 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

    The Rams defensed sack Bortles five times in the game and Nickell Robey-Coleman came up with the interception for the Rams secondary.

    Los Angeles is currently on an 11 day road trip as they will remain in Jacksonville this coming week, before they depart to London to face the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday.
