Bonsignore: Rams making every adjustment as they become contenders

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  – All week the Rams talked about stopping Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, knowing their ability to slow the rookie down would inevitably push the game to quarterback Blake Bortles, the weak point of the Jaguars offense.

And the ease with which he leaned right into a gaping hole near the middle of the Rams defense before turning on the jets to race past Rams safety John Johnson and the rest of the Rams secondary untouched to the end zone.
