Rams’ Troy Hill makes his latest big play go a long way

INGLEWOOD — Covering 84 yards, Rams cornerback Troy Hill dodged and weaved on his way to the end zone. The last 15, with no one in his way, were the roughest. “That’s a long distance, so your legs start getting heavy,” said Hill, who visibly staggered. “I just had to catch up, get (my stride) right.” Hill’s touchdown runback of an interception late in the first half Sunday at SoFi Stadium put the Rams in front of the Arizona Cardinals to stay in an 18-7 victory that earned a playoff berth. It wa...

Alexander: The Rams’ understudy handles his starring role

And we thought, as the 2020 NFL season began, that the potential L.A. quarterback controversy would involve the other tenant of SoFi Stadium. Who knew that by season’s end – a finish line that the NFL was no sure bet to reach, by the way, but did so even if it took some scheduling creativity – that the Rams’ coach would have to answer the question, posed shortly after they finally punched their ticket to the playoffs. “Is John Wolford your starting quarterback next week in Seattle?” Sean McVay w...

Whicker: Rams’ reliable defense takes the weight off Wolford

If anything, Sunday showed you should order your next can of quarterbacks from the Alliance of American Football and not the Canadian Football League. It also showed that the Rams’ defense is still capable of overcoming all roadblocks, including the Rams’ offense. The 18-7 victory over the Cardinals put the Rams into the playoffs for the third time in Sean McVay’s four years and, even though John Wolford had strong moments in relief of Jared Goff, they came without an offensive touchdown.

Last call for Pink’s Hot Dogs until March, as Hollywood stand closes until coronavirus is under control

Pink’s Hot Dogs has somehow always been there.

It was your last chance for at least until March to grab a Guadalajara Dog or maybe that long-awaited Rosie O’Donnell Long Island Dog — just two of an array of what owner Richard Pink and his 25 employees offer to everyone from celebrities to lunc...

Zidane first took the hot seat at the Bernabeu in 2016 and resigned two years later in 2018 before returning to the Spanish club the following year. He has remained coy when qu...

No excuses,” Lue said on...
