Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks: Highlight/Lowlight In a high scoring affair by both sides Brandin Cooks Jersey
, the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks both had plenty of highlights (offensively) and lowlights (defensively).To chop it up, let’s take a look at the highlight and lowlight of the day for the Rams:Lowlight(Google AMP and Apple News readers will need to click here to see the clip)Your browser does not support HTML5 video.This play was a microcosm of the Rams’ struggles on the day on defense. The Seahawks’ physicality simply out matched the Rams on the ground as they routinely gained chunk yardage by running the ball. To counteract the strength of the run, the Rams needed to stick nine guys in the box and play cover-0 like they did on this play. Obviously if everyone is in the box and dedicated to stopping the run it leaves your cornerbacks on islands - and that proved to be a major issue for the Rams (particularly Marcus Peters). On multiple occasions Peters allowed his eyes to float into the backfield as opposed to his receiver and it bit him in the behind to the tune of allowing three touchdowns.Highlight(Google AMP and Apple News readers will need to click here to see the clip)Your browser does not support HTML5 video.The Rams didn’t have any particularly huge gainers that went for touchdowns, so I decided to go with one of a handful of large plays from the passing game that involved WR Robert Woods. Woods’ route running ability was leaving defensive backs in a daze all game. On this route, Woods begins to run a variation of a slant going outside off the line of scrimmage and making a hard stick at the top of his cut. After that Aqib Talib Jersey
, Woods does a great job becoming a physical ball carrier breaking a tackle and gaining major yards after the catch. This was just one of a handful of big plays from the dependent-yet-great wide receiver.The Rams went into Century Link undefeated and left in the same manner. It was another good offensive performance for a team that seems unstoppable on that side of the ball. The defense needs to do a better job moving forward though. A rusty season opener is somewhat expected from Sean McVay’s Los Angeles Rams. Save for Sebastian Joseph-Day (Micah Kiser too, but he’s injured and most likely done for the year), no projected starters stepped onto the field during the exhibition period. Lets hope and pray they knocked the cobwebs off. A second outing of the same ilk will not, however, be as forgiving. The LA Rams are at home this week to take on the New Orleans Saints who will without a doubt come out seeking revenge after last year’s NFC Championship game. So lets not waste any more broadband/bandwidth. Onto the five Rams to watch for Week 2:S Taylor RappRapp’s first game as a pro was outstanding. We kinda knew this kid would be good Marcus Peters Jersey
, but we did not know he would be THIS GOOD!Rapp is key in the sub-packages, filling the Nickel/Dime LB role superbly. Against the Saints — and with weapons like TE Jared Cook and RB Alvin Kamara — Rapp will have to be sound. Theoretically, Taylor is the right man for the job. He can lay the boom and he can cover TEs. Lets hope it goes our way.RB Malcolm BrownBig Malc did his thang in the first game of 2019. He was crucial in the redzone — tacking on two scores. All in all, Brown tallied 53 yards on 11 carries — a 4.8 per carry clip. If this first game is any indication of the Todd Gurley maintenance plan, then Malcolm will get his fair share of opportunities to EAT. His meals will continue into the home opener.S Marqui ChristianWhen S Eric Weddle went down after sustaining that nasty gash on his head (and subsequent inclusion in the concussion protocol) David Long Los Angeles Rams Jerseys
, “Q” stepped in and performed adequately. If Weddle cannot go this week, Christian will be the one to fill in again. And it is a huge assignment, given New Orleans’ potent offensive assault.EDGE Dante Fowler, Jr.The storyline has always gone something like this: line up any scrub next to Aaron Donald and they will reap the rewards of all the attention AD demands. Well, reality does not work that way. We have seen it countless times.In Dante’s case Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019
, and to his credit, he reaped the rewards of playing on Donald’s side last Sunday. Fowler first sack (two total) came on a stunt he pulled off with Aaron Donald. Donald ate up both defenders and Dante made his way to the QB unscathed — a thing of beauty, actually. Fowler should continue racking up sacks on opportunities like this. It will prove he is worth his money ($12M, per Spotrac), and it will line him up for an even richer payday after the season.CB Marcus Peters/Aqib TalibThe secondary played lights out in Week 1. This week brings forth an entirely whole different breed of monster. WR Michael Thomas is easily the one of the best pass catchers in the game. Playa can do it all. This is where Peters/Talib enter the scene. Whenever one is match up with Thomas David Long Jersey nfl draft
, they will have to attempt to limit his windows/limit the damage Michael can cause.
