John Wolford hit Jalen Greene for a 4-yard touchdown with 12:38 left in the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Rams beat the visiting Denver Broncos 10-6 in a battle of backups Saturday night in preseason action.
Rams head coach Sean McVay sat all of his starters and also held out backup quarterback Blake Bortles. Brandon Allen started at quarterback for the Rams, hitting 12 of 19 attempts for 162 yards, before Wolford went 6 of 12 for 64 yards and the game-winning TD.
Los Angeles turned it over on downs twice in Denver’s red zone, and kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a 58-yard field goal. Wideout Mike Thomas caught three passes for 76 yards.
The Broncos also sat their starters, and with second-round rookie Drew Lock out injured, Kevin Hogan started at quarterback. He completed 8 of 12 passes for 69 yards in three possessions of work, leading a field-goal drive. Brett Rypien entered late in the second quarter and finished 14 of 23 for 80 yards and an interception.
