With another divisional win and season sweep of the Seattle Seahawks Dominique Easley Color Rush Jersey , the Los Angeles Rams are now 9-1 on the season and cruising to a playoff berth after nearly locking up the NFC West.The Rams continue to rebound off losses in the Sean McVay era as they’ve never lost consecutive games.Let’s revisit the matchups to watch:CB’s Marcus Peters/Troy Hill vs WR’s Tyler Lockett/David MooreLast week’s matchup to watch:It was nice to see the Rams’ secondary play a relatively decent game. Now, they weren’t targeted much. The Seahawks’ gameplan was to clearly gain yardage on the ground running the ball. But even with that being the case, when targeted, Marcus Peters and Troy Hill were solid. Outside of one touchdown given up to Lockett with Hill in very good coverage, they weren’t involved all game (in a good way).DT’s Aaron Donald/Ndamukong Suh vs OG D.J. FlukerLast week’s matchup to watch:Obviously D.J. Fluker didn’t play in the game, but the combo of Donald and Suh weren’t going to be stopped regardless. The performances were on two ends of the spectrum. Against the run? Well, the entire front-seven got abused to the tune of 273 rushing yards. Against the pass? Different story. Donald once again wreaked havoc notching 2.5 sacks and Suh chipped in with his lone 0.5 sack. Donald is simply unstoppable, and I look forward to seeing him breaking records as a legendary talent.Rams’ front-seven vs Seahawks’ running gameLast week’s matchup to watch:The Seahawks won this battle with absolute ease. Prior to Sunday, first-round rookie RB Rashaad Penny averaged 3.5 yards per carry on the year. On Sunday, Penny averaged 9.0 yards per carry. Not only that, but the Seahawks were missing RB Chris Carson and RG D.J. Fluker. The Rams seriously need to find a way to limit teams on the ground more beacuse allowing 273 rushing yards in a game isn’t a winning recipe, but they still somehow got it done.WR Robert Woods vs CB Shaquill GriffinLast week’s matchup to watch:Woods wasn’t used a ton but still managed to catch four passes on five targets for 89 yards. Any given day is the theme for this receiver corps as they can all shred a defense at any point in time. Sunday turned out to be Brandin Cooks’ game, but Woods still proved he can do big damage on minimal touches.TE Gerald Everett vs SS Bradley McDougaldLast week’s matchup to watch:Everett was only targeted twice https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Ndamukong-Suh-Jersey , but he caught both for 15 yards and one for a touchdown. Not only that, but TE Tyler Higbee also converted all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown. The tight end usage seems to be ramping up a little bit, and will likely see even more of a target share moving forward with the season-ending injury to WR Cooper Kupp.Rams’ defense vs QB Russell WilsonLast week’s matchup to watch:We’ll chalk this up as an “below average” performance. Wilson simply didn’t attempt many passes (at least not until the end) so his yardage was low at 176 yards (which is good). The issue was that he still managed to throw for three touchdowns and no interceptions. The rushing defense was awful allowing 273 yards on the ground. Still, outside of two awful drives in the beginning and some incredibly dumb and unnecessary penalties, they didn’t perform terribly. They wont always extend drives by way of penalty that directly lead to points, so that’s where the major hope lies.With another major divisional win in the bag, the Rams prepare to head to Mexico City for arguably the most exciting matchup in the NFL season with a game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Los Angeles Rams proved that the third time is actually a charm, because in their third matchup against the New Orleans Saints, they escaped victorious and punched their ticket to Superbowl 53.Let’s revisit the matchups to watch:CB’s Aqib Talib/Marcus Peters vs WR Michael ThomasLast week’s matchup to watch:Michael Thomas turned seven targets into four receptions for 36 yards. The Rams clearly came in with an advanced plan this time around ensuring they’d dare anyone else on the Saints to beat them, but not Thomas. Thomas was routinely bracket covered by a CB having outside leverage and a safety coming down and covering with inside leverage. This was a fantastic adjustment by the coaching staff — more notably Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips — after Thomas proved to be a massive issue in the week nine matchup.WR Brandin Cooks vs CB Marshon LattimoreLast week’s matchup to watch:Anyway you slice it, Brandin Cooks won this matchup against Marshon Lattimore. On eight targets, Cooks managed seven receptions for 107 yards, with one of those catches being the most important in the game. It was the deep shot down the left side of the field prior to halftime that put the Rams at the 6-yard line and allowed the Rams to cut the lead to 13-10 before halftime. Cooks was routinely winning using his deep speed to set up defensive backs and then cutting on a dime returning to Goff and opening a throwing window. Cooks also had a fantastic tip-toe sideline catch along the left sideline.RB’s Todd Gurley/C.J. Anderson vs Saints’ front-sevenLast week’s matchup to watch:The duo of Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson were completely stifled by the Saints’ front-seven John Franklin-Myers Color Rush Jersey , which is relatively strange but at the same time not at all. The Saints have been a very solid run defense all year, though I really over-estimated the loss of DT Sheldon Rankins. Regardless, Anderson and Gurley combined for 20 carries for 54 yards and one touchdown. They weren’t incredibly productive, but they sufficed in pass pro and allowed the passing game to take over.Rams’ OL vs Saints’ DLLast week’s matchup to watch:The offensive line had a solid but unspectacular game. Jared Goff was only sacked once by Cameron Jordan, so that’s relatively ideal. Goff generally had good pockets to operate from and knew exactly when to bail the pocket and create time on his own scrambling when he didn’t. Run blocking struggled as the Rams averaged roughly three yards-per-carry, though this is a performance you’d take every time.ILB’s Cory Littleton/Mark Barron vs RB Alvin KamaraLast week’s matchup to watch:As a runner, Alvin Kamara was complete neutralized as he had eight carries for 15 yards averaging 1.9 yards-per-carry. He did prove to be an issue as a receiver though, as Cory Littleton simply couldn’t keep up with Kamara on multiple occasions. As a receiver, Kamara registered 11 receptions for 96 yards. Littleton better be ready, because his assignment doesn’t get much easier in the Superbowl against New England Patriots RB James White.DT’s Aaron Donald/Ndamukong Suh vs OG’s Andrus Peat/Larry WarfordLast week’s matchup to watch:Aaron Donald proved to be a major weapon as a run defender, forcing a fumble on a snap where the QB (I believe Taysom Hill) was late to hand it to Alvin Kamara. Not only that, but Donald registered two tackles-for-loss. Ndamukong Suh has clearly been saving his best play for the playoffs as he was once again a monster, registering four tackles Marcus Peters Jersey , 1.5 sacks, and one tackle-for-loss. The better this duo gets together, the better the defense becomes.QB Jared Goff vs Saints’ secondaryLast week’s matchup to watcheath, taxes, and Jared Goff playing well against the Saints. Though his stat line wasn’t anything jaw-dropping (25/40 for 297 yards, one touchdown, one interception) he made the plays needed to put up points and get the win. In every position that was a critical possession and highly pressured, Goff absolutely excelled and stepped up to the occasion. Jared proved that no moment is too big for him, and that’s exactly why the Rams are on their way to Superbowl 53.
