WATCH: Los Angeles Rams QB Bryce Perkins breaks multiple tackles in magical preseason run

The Los Angeles Rams are the away team for Saturday’s Week 1 preseason game with the neighboring Los Angeles Chargers.

But regardless of the logo in the center of the field at SoFi Stadium, there is only one defending champion in the building, as coach Sean McVay and the Rams are now officially on the trail of a repeat with the start of the pre-season.

And no matter who tackles quarterback Bryce Perkins, who got the start on Saturday, he’s proven he doesn’t go downhill.

Perkins is known as a talented dual-threat quarterback, but he had arguably the best nine-yard play you’ll see in a preseason game. Looked:

Last year, in the first three-game preseason in league history, Perkins had three starts and was the only Rams quarterback to play in the final two games.

Overall, he went 56-91 passing for 451 yards, three touchdowns and a pick. He also rushed 22 times for 114 yards. Coach Sean McVay was impressed with Perkins and said fans should expect similar playing time for the former Virginia Cavalier in the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday. .

“I’m very happy with him,” McVay said Saturday in training camp. “He’s got a great self-image and all the reps he gets here are going to serve him well. I think you’re going to see that reflected in the way he’s been playing in pre-season. It’s been great.

Those are just preseason numbers, but Perkins’ promising mobility and experience in the system make him a valuable asset the Rams could win to keep.

And after his incredible nine-yard run, he went from strength to strength as full-time backup starting quarterback Matthew Stafford.
