TAMPA, Fla. -- Two weeks after looking like an offensively challenged team staring at a potentially long season, the Los Angeles Rams are off to their best start in 10 years.Theyve even got some touchdowns to show for the progress theyve made since being shut out in their first game after relocating back to the West Coast after a 21-year stay in St. Louis.All I know is we got Arizona at Arizona next week, coach Jeff Fisher said after Sundays 37-32 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. None of them are easy, but well take it.Case Keenum threw for the franchises first TD as the L.A. Rams since 1994 , and Robert Quinn tackled Jameis Winston from behind 5 yards short of the end zone on the games final play to seal the teams second straight win.In between, Todd Gurley scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, Ethan Westbrooks returned a fumble caused by Quinn 77 yards for a TD, Tavon Austin made a nice nifty move to turn a deep throw into a 43-yard scoring play, and the Rams (2-1) even weathered a 69-minute delay caused by a thunderstorm passing over Raymond James Stadium.I think we are in a good spot, Keenum said. I think we are getting better each week, which is what you want to do.Tampa Bay (1-2), meanwhile, has lost two straight since Winstons sparkling performance in a season-opening win over Atlanta.Winston threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns, but looked tentative on the games last play. He never took off full speed and was wrestled down after a 10-yard gain.The Bucs have yielded 101 points through three games, and the defense gave up two more plays of 40-plus yards against the Rams.The lesson our team has to learn -- every week is a battle. Our culture is not where it needs to be. ... I put that squarely on my shoulders, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said.Theres something about our culture that let games like this get away, Koetter added. Weve got to get over that hump.Some things to know about the Rams and Bucs moving forward:RESiLiENT BUNCH: The Rams were far from perfect against the Buccaneers. Keenum threw a first-quarter interception that was returned by linebacker Kwon Alexander for a touchdown, and Kenny Britts second-quarter fumble led to another Tampa Bay TD. Los Angeles wasnt fazed, though, and forced a couple of turnovers -- ex-Buc Mark Barrons second quarter interception and Quinns fourth quarter, sack/strip that caused the fumble Westbrooks scooped up -- to score themselves.Turnovers hurt us early, but we go get two big plays on defense ... and that kind of balanced things out, Fisher said.WIDE LEFT: Bucs rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo had a tough day and may be a hot topic of conversation as the team prepares to face defending Super Bowl champion Denver next Sunday. The second-round draft pick out of Florida State struggled early in the preseason, hooked an extra-point to the left after Tampa Bays first touchdown and later missed a 41-yard field goal attempt wide left, drawing boos from the announced crowd of 55,009. The team has drawn some criticism for the decision to use such a high draft pick to select a kicker. If he makes the two kicks he missed Sunday, the argument could be made that the Bucs could have employed different strategy and/or might not have needed a touchdown at the end to win.Times like this are going to happen, Aguayo said, adding his confidence isnt shaken. Im excited for next week, to move on.BACK ON TRACK?: Los Angeles RB Todd Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards and 10 TDs as a rookie a year ago, however he averaged just 2.7 yards per attempts while running for 98 yards on 36 carries in the Rams first two games. He was more effective Sunday, even though he only averaged 3.1 yards on his way to 85 yards on 28 carries.Hes not there yet, but not because of Todd Gurley personally, Fisher said, adding the team has to do a better job converting third downs and doing other things to create more opportunities for the second-year pro.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Patriots Jerseys Online . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Patriots Jerseys Sale . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. http://www.cheapnewenglandpatriotsjerseys.com/ . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. Patriots Jerseys Hoodies . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. Patriots Jerseys Shop . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. Zach Merrett is wary of the road ahead for Essendon in the AFL, even with the return of their banned players.On Wednesday, the suspensions end for the 17 current AFL players found guilty of doping offences stemming from the Essendon supplements debacle.Of those, 12 are at Essendon and nine have re-signed at the club.Only captain Jobe Watson is yet to decide his future.Essendon finished last this season, but the Bombers stood firm and look well-placed to improve in 2017.But Merrett, who won the club best and fairest award this season for the first time, said nothing is guaranteed.Id love to say were aiming for the premiership - I think we are - but obviously we finished only 15th (last year) with those (banned) guys as well, Merrett said.We definitely understand theres a lot of hard work to be done and were a long way back from where wed like to be.But its exciting as well - we can really paint a picture of how the club goes forwward.ddddddddddddMerrett said he had spoken to Dyson Heppell, one of the returning players, this week - but not to Watson.He (Watson) is obviously a key player for us and someone whos won a Brownlow Medal, so it speaks about how good a player he is on the field, Merrett said.Off the field, hes a fantastic leader as well, so it would be great for the younger boys in the club if he came back.He obviously has everyone in Australia wondering what hes going to do.Essendon will let the players ease back into the club, with apparently no organised sessions this week.Of the 12, Michael Hibberd wants a trade and Tayte Pears has retired from senior football.On Tuesday night, Merrett was rewarded for his fine season when he was named vice-captain of the AFL Players Associations 2016 commemorative under-22 team.
