Fisher: We Can’t Rely on Gurley


It’s been a big coming-out party for Todd Gurley, the first St. Louis Rams rookie to rush for 100 yards in three straight games since Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson in 1983. The team could use a lot more from the rest of the offense, and take some heat off the kid. Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday he got four quarters of production from the defense, which had four sacks and recovered four fumbles, and from special teams in Sunday’s 24-6 victory over the Browns. He said he got one half from the offense. “We need to do better across the board,” Fisher said. “Getting open, creating opportunities and making throws.” Nick Foles was 15 for 23 for just 163 yards, 41 of those on Kenny Britt’s lone catch to set up Gurley’s 1-yard run for his first NFL touchdown. Tavon Austin had a few moments, with four receptions for 43 yards and one carry for 21 yards. “Yeah, it was a little bit of a slow start,” Foles said. “We were able to come out in the second half and get some rhythm.”
