Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Matthew Stafford passed for 334 yards and three touchdowns against his former team, and Jalen Ramsey made an end zone interception on his 27th birthday with five minutes left in the Los Angeles Rams’ 28-19 victory over Jared Goff and the winless Detroit Lions. Goff passed for 268 yards and nearly led the Lions to an upset win in his first meeting with the Rams, who traded him for Stafford in a blockbuster deal last winter. Goff drove the Lions to the LA 12 in the waning minutes, but Ramsey picked off Goff, who was being hit by Aaron Donald.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Dan Campbell emptied the playbook in an effort to get his first NFL victory as a head coach only to see it fall short. The Detroit coach saw his Lions successfully execute an onside kick and two fake punts Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. The Lions were able to jump out to a 10-0 first-quarter lead but were unable to sustain the momentum as the Rams rallied for a 28-19 victory. According to Sportradar, it is the first time since Jacksonville in Week 15 of the 2014 season that a team has had a successful onside kick and fake punt in the same game.

Tyler Bertuzzi added a goal and two assists as Detroit bounced back nicely after a 6-1 loss at Montreal on Saturday night. Carter Rowney and Vladislav Namestnikov also scored. Short-handed Chicago dropped to 0-5-1 in a nightmarish start for a team with playoff aspirations.
