In an era when more coaches are embracing analytics, Campbell helped deliver the Lions a win over the Los Angeles Chargers thanks in part to some bold decisions that even the usually aggressive computer models deemed risky
The biggest one came when the Lions faced a fourth-and-2 from the Chargers 26 with 1:47 remaining in a tie game.
Instead of opting for the field goal that would have given Detroit the lead but Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert plenty of time to drive for a tying or go-ahead score, Campbell went for it and was rewarded when Jared Goff completed a 6-yard pass to Sam LaPorta.
Detroit ran down the clock and won the game on a field goal on the final play.
The Los Angeles Rams have announced their plan to build their first permanent headquarters and training complex since the franchise returned to California.
The Rams will build in Woodland Hills, a neighborhood of Los Angeles in the southwest corner of the San Fernando Valley.
The team will move to its new address next year, initially working in modular trailers similar to the temporary complex they’ve occupied since 2016 in Thousand Oaks.
While the announcement was made Wednesday in Woodland Hills, the Rams’ intentions have been widely known over the past two years since owner Stan Kroenke began buying nearly 100 acres of property in the area, including two adjoining malls.
The team already has begun growing grass for its new practice fields while intending to make the move before the opening of training camp in July.
Since Kroenke moved the Rams back home to the Los Angeles area from St. Louis in 2016, the team has practiced and worked in that temporary complex on the edge of the campus of Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, an outer suburb of Los Angeles.
