INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Colts face a tall task heading into the locker room at Lucas Oil Stadium as the Los Angeles Rams hold a 20-0 halftime lead over the Horseshoe.

The Rams got the ball first to start the game, orchestrating a 9-play 75-yard drive that ended in a Kyren Williams rushing touchdown.

The Colts offense sputtered, punting 6 plays into its opening drive.

Another long drive ensued for Los Angeles, going the length of the field in a 10-play, 94-yard drive that concluded with yet another rushing touchdown, both by the Notre Dame product.

A pair of field goals by LA got the score to 20-0, where it ended heading into the locker room.

Colts’ kicker Matt Gay, the reigning AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, attempted a 47-yard field goal near the end of the first half but failed to put the team on the board with a wide-right miss.
