The passes were crisp, the routes precise and the catches resulted in numerous trips to the end zone.

Quarterback Jared Goff connected with receiver Robert Woods on a sideline pattern, Sammy Watkins over the middle. Tavon Austin and other Rams receivers also burned beleaguered defensive backs for big yardage and touchdowns.

It was several hours before the Rams’ preseason finale Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers, and Sean McVay was putting his skill-position starters through a fast-paced workout at empty Lambeau Field — with the rookie coach playing defensive back.

When it was over, the starters retired to the locker room and later emerged in sweatshirts for the game, watching and encouraging Rams reserves in a 24-10 defeat.
