The Los Angeles Rams led the NFL in points heading into Week 6.
They wasted no time in scoring on the Jacksonville Jaguars on the opening play of their Sunday matchup.
Pharoh Cooper provided fans with the first return touchdown on an opening kickoff of the season, utilizing a nifty spin move to fake out an entire pack of Jags special teamers en route to a 103-yard score.

Probably the best part of this play is learning that Cooper’s Twitter handle is @KingTutt_chdown.

The mere threat of Cooper’s wheels might have intimidated Jags punter Brad Nortman into a 16-yard punt on Jacksonville’s second possession.
Pharoh Cooper was back there to field the punt but it was shanked — officially a 16-yard punt. Rams start at the Jags 45.

The team then gained eight yards and kicked a field goal to take a three-point lead.
Cooper entered the contest leading the league in kickoff return yards, going 352 yards with a season-high of 66. His 103-yarder to open Week 6 is the sophomore’s first career touchdown.
At the end of the first quarter, the Rams lead the Jaguars 17-14.
