Matthew Stafford’s debut with the Los Angeles Rams was a successful one.

The former Detroit Lions quarterback led his team to a win over his old divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. Stafford and the Rams crushed the Bears, 34-14, to open the season with a nice victory.

Stafford played very well, throwing for 321 yards and three touchdowns on 20 of 26 passing in the season-opening win.

College football analyst Paul Finebaum usually jumps for joy when a non-SEC team with national title hopes loses a big game. But Ohio State’s loss to Oregon on Saturday has prompted a different reaction from him.

Appearing on SportsCenter, Finebaum called it “hard to explain” what happened to Ohio State in the game. He credited Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal and offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead with creating a brilliant gameplan.

As for Ohio State, he noted that their defense couldn’t get a stop and their offense couldn’t get enough going. Finebaum believes that Ohio State’s road to the College Football Playoff is now “very complicated.”

“It’s hard to explain what happened yesterday at The Horseshoe,” Finebaum said. “Especially when you consider that Oregon, coming into the game, without its two best players and maybe the best player in college football (in
