JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Rams and Jaguars gave stragglers something to regret.
Both teams scored on their first touches Sunday.
Pharoh Cooper returned the opening kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown, eluders two tacklers while tiptoeing at times down Jacksonville's sideline.

The Jaguars responded quickly. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette, who carried on the opening play for the sixth consecutive game, went 75 yards for a touchdown that tied the game and pumped some life back into EverBank Field.

Fournette scored on his 28th and final carry last week at Pittsburgh, a 90-yard run that put an exclamation point on a blowout.
So Fournette totaled 165 yards and two scores on consecutive carries.
Neither team was done with its fast start, either. The Rams added a field goal, and Jacksonville scordd another touchdown in the first quarter.
