Case Keenum threw for the Rams‘ first touchdown since relocating back to Los Angeles, and Todd Gurley rushed for two more scores Sunday in a 37-32 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Rams (2-1), who did not get into the end zone in the first two games of the season, also scored on Ethan Westbrooks‘ 77-yard fumble return and Tavon Austin‘s 43-yard reception in the fourth quarter before thunder and lightning caused a 69-minute weather delay with two minutes remaining.

Keenum, who used three field goals to beat Seattle 9-3 in Week 2, completed 14 of 25 passes for 190 yards, two TDs and one interception, which Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander returned 38 yards for a first-quarter touchdown. In addition to throwing a TD pass to Austin for a late 11-point lead, he got the Rams on track early with his 44-yard scoring pass to Brian Quick for the franchise’s first TD as the L.A. Rams since 1994.

Jameis Winston threw for 405 yards and three TDs for Tampa Bay (1-2). He threw an interception that set up one of Gurley’s two 1-yard touchdown runs and was stripped by the RamsRobert Quinn on the fumble that Westbrooks returned up the left sideline for a 31-20 lead.

Winston’s 7-yard TD pass to Mike Evans trimmed Tampa Bay’s deficit to 37-32 with 2:15 remaining.

The Bucs forced a punt after the lightning delay and drove from their own 44 to the Rams 15 before Winston threw two incompletions and was tackled on the 5-yard line by Quinn on the final play.
