Cory LittletonIt may seem funny to give a game ball to the Rams “mike” linebacker in a game where the opposition rushed for 190 yards White Ndamukong Suh Jersey , but here we go. Littleton came up big when it needed most.During Seattle’s final push to get back into field goal range at the end of the game, Littleton made two stellar plays. The first was when he leapt with both arms in the air like he was playing volleyball in Hermosa Beach, and swatted down Russell Wilson’s pass attempt.The next play Littleton blitzed up the middle, but didn’t over commit, and consequently remained in front of Wilson as he scampered backward and to the sideline, only to toss the ball away. The Rams were a completion and field goal from losing the game, and thanks to Littleton they escaped. Oh yeah, plus he blocked another punt. Robert WoodsWith Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp out of the game due to concussion protocol, Robert Woods valiantly carried the load with a little help from Josh Reynolds at times. At times Woods really looks like a throwback from the Greatest Show on Turf Youth Aaron Donald Jersey , silky smooth like Isaac Bruce and always in the right place. Woods finished with five receptions for 92 yards, to go with a 56-yard jetsweep.Jared GoffIt was fun to see Jared Goff have to play with some adversity in the form of losing two of his favorite targets and facing a bit more pressure. Though circumstances changed, his poise seemed the same. Sure a ball slipped out of his hand and he threw another red zone pick, but he just kept battling. He ended up 23/32 for 321 yards. His rating was low, 76.0, but that was partly due to his Hail Mary interception at the end of the first half. Goff seems officially ready to play in hostile environments. Cooper KuppThough Kupp only played in the first half, he had six catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. Coming into the season I wondered if Kupp would improve much since he already seemed so polished coming out of Eastern Washington. But Kupp seems to have become an even more reliable target for Jared Goff, and is currently on pace to end up with 76 receptions for over 1,100 yards and about 13 touchdowns.Todd GurleyYardage-wise it wasn’t a monster day for Gurley White Marcus Peters Jersey , but he seemed in control when tapped and netted three more touchdowns. At times the offense leaned heavily on the pass, but Gurley was ready to roll and extend plays at plenty of critical junctures. When you look at how running backs often hit an early wall in their careers, perhaps “under-usage” isn’t the worst thing in the world. McVay knows dude.Los Angeles Rams’ offensive line graded third-highest in NFL through two games by Pro Football Focus Through two games, the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive line has played spectacularly. LT Andrew Whitworth, LG Rodger Saffold, C John Sullivan, RG Austin Blythe and RT Rob Havenstein have made the offensive outputs possible in both the run and passing games.So it shouldn’t surprise anyone to see them ranked third overall in the entire NFL at this point by Pro Football Focus:The most impressive part about this? The lack of a weak point. Sullivan’s grade of 63.0, the lowest of the five, is the highest grade in the entire NFL from each team’s lowest-graded player. So while many linemen around the league grade out higher than Saffold’s 78.7 Youth Todd Gurley II Jersey , the highest Rams OL grade, they play on teams that have weaker points than Sullivan. PFF’s #1 overal line, the New Orleans Saints’, has two players graded in the 80s, but LG Andrus Peat earned a 58.6 grade. The Philadelphia Eagles’ line at #2 had two players in the 50s.So this isn’t a line being held up by one or two guys. It’s a joint success.And of course, we should point out that RG Austin Blythe is performing well above expectations as a fill-in for RG Jamon Brown who has missed the first two games due to a suspension. Head Coach Sean McVay has a very difficult decision on his hands there for Week 3...But of course, this is the kind of problem you want to have. The Rams have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL even without one of their starters.The question is if they can keep it up.
