Tre Mason scored two long touchdowns and added another TD in the fourth and Shaun Hill accounted for three TDs in the St. Louis Rams’ 52-0 rout over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome.
Despite unrest in Ferguson, the game played as scheduled with extra security on hand.
The Rams scored 38 first half points that tied for second biggest in franchise history. Mason had 113 yards rushing on six carries in the half with an 89-yard score, and a 35-yard jaunt on a screen pass that opened the scoring. Hill was 12 for 15 for 178 yards and two TDs and ran for a 2-yard score.
The Rams (5-7) scored touchdowns on their first five possessions, got a field goal on the sixth midway through the second quarter to top their previous best scoring total for any game this season. The 38-point halftime lead was the largest in franchise history, one more than against Green Bay in 1980.
The Raiders (1-11) committed five turnovers.
