f the Seattle Seahawks Youth Brandin Cooks 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 Womens Cory Littleton Jersey , 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, 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 Womens Johnny Hekker Jersey , 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. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Losing consecutive games for the first time as coach of the Los Angeles Rams hasn’t dampened Sean McVay’s sense of humor.McVay joked he hasn’t paid attention to the media coverage of Sunday night’s 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles “because I don’t want you guys to hurt my feelings.”Instead, McVay is concerned with getting the Rams out of their first prolonged slump in his two seasons.“You know you have a say in that this story is not finalized,” McVay said Monday night. “They don’t end the season after 14 games. And we know for sure that we have got two left in this regular season and one playoff game. What we don’t know is when that playoff game is going to be. We do know it’s going to be at the Coliseum, and that’s all we’re guaranteed right now.”McVay believes the Rams (11-3) showed signs of a turnaround by giving themselves a chance to tie the game on the final play, an incomplete pass by Jared Goff for Josh Reynolds. Goff was 17 of 23 passing for 179 yards in the fourth quarter against the Eagles after going 55 of 108 for 547 yards with one touchdown and seven interceptions over the previous 11 quarters.What bogged down the offense as the Eagles built a 17-point lead, McVay said, were breakdowns and penalties that put the Rams in difficult down-and-distance situations. The 32-year-old coach was pleased his team still had a chance to win in spite of those issues.“You could feel that momentum and , really, that clock ran out on us at the end of the game,” McVay said. “But in spite of all the different things that we went through, you can’t say these guys didn’t continue to fight, scratch and claw to put ourselves in a position to try to win a game. Credit to the Eagles for being able to get it done, but we’re going to learn from this and we’re not going to allow it to define our season. I do believe that and I know that.”Another confidence-booster for McVay is the health of Todd Gurley, who sustained a knee injury against Philadelphia that did not turn out to be serious. McVay said Gurley is dealing with inflammation and will be day-to-day going into the game at Arizona on Sunday. Gurley had 12 carries for 48 yards against the Eagles.McVay said he would be cautious with Gurley, who leads the NFL with 21 touchdowns and is second in the league in rushing yards. However, the chance to secure a first-round playoff bye by winning the final two games would factor into whether McVay would use Gurley against the Cardinals (3-11) if he is healthy.Complicating matters is the shoulder injury Justin Davis sustained against Philadelphia Womens Dominique Easley Jersey , leaving rookie John Kelly as the only healthy running back on the roster. Davis is also day-to-day, McVay said.“I think you really just take it one day at a time,” McVay said. “These games are important for us. We’ve got to do a good job of getting ready for a tough division opponent at their place and having a good week of preparation.”NOTES: McVay met with CB Marcus Peters, who had a verbal altercation with a fan during the game Sunday. McVay did not say if Peters would face internal discipline. “He knows that we’ve got to be better in those situations and can’t allow whatever’s going on, in terms of that dialogue, to affect our ability to be focused on what is going on during the game,” McVay said.
