It was a fairly uneventful game from start to finish, but a few things stood out in L.A. on Saturday night. Here are three takeaways from the Rams' victory.

Martavis Bryant has not fulfilled requirements for full reinstatement

  Martavis Bryant has not fulfilled requirements for full reinstatement Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has yet to be fully reinstated by the NFL after he was suspended for the entire 2016 season, and that is apparently because he still has league-mandated requirements to fulfill. In an email to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Bryant has not done everything he needs to do in order to have his ban fully lifted.

Justin Davis has a world of potential as No. 2 running back

Todd Gurley is going to be the Rams' starting running back. There isn't a person in America that will dispute that. However, things get interesting as you look further down the depth chart. Davis had himself an up-and-down night against the Cowboys, but there were more highs than lows. He rushed for 70 yards on just nine carries, 32 of which came on one attempt.

If you watched him play, you could see why the Rams are excited about him in McVay's offense. He can run out of the shotgun, catch passes and make big plays in the open field. His vision is outstanding for a rookie, and his decisiveness in the hole is even better. When he sees an opening, he puts his foot in the ground and gets upfield. He's going to push Malcolm Brown hard for the backup running back job, as long as he fixes his fumbling issues.

Report: DeShone Kizer likely to start Browns’ preseason opener

  Report: DeShone Kizer likely to start Browns’ preseason opener The Cleveland Browns are ready to take a long look at rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer during preseason games. According to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, Kizer is likely to start Cleveland’s preseason opener despite an underwhelming scrimmage on Friday night.

The Hawks were forced to give the ball to Dallas one last time, but were able to shut America's Team down easily, and walk out of Dallas with the win . The Hawks currently sit in third place in the division (Cardinals: 6-2, Rams : 4- 3 ), but seem to be getting better the further into the season we get.

Rob Havenstein will most likely move to RT full-time

After keeping Jamon Brown at right tackle for most of the offseason, Sean McVay mixed it up on the line. Havenstein got the start at right tackle with Brown inside at right guard, which is a combination both players are probably more comfortable with. It remains to be seen if the Rams will go into the regular season with this combo on the right side, but it's telling that McVay would open the preseason schedule with Havenstein at tackle. Keep an eye on the right side of the offensive line next week and throughout the preseason.

Sean McVay isn't worried about Jared Goff's transition to his offense

Goff played exactly eight plays on Saturday night, which is about what McVay expected his starters to play. However, Goff isn't like the rest of the first-stringers. He's the quarterback, who's entering his first season in a new system after struggling mightily as a rookie.

Given the lack of playing time he saw against the Cowboys, though, McVay doesn't seem concerned with his transition to a new regime. If he were worried about it, Goff would've stayed around into the second quarter.

It's hard to blame the head coach for keeping his quarterback out of harm's way, too. Goff is the face of the franchise and this team will go as he does. If he gets hurt, the Rams will be in trouble.
