Zuerlein Named Aaron Loup Jersey NFC Special Teams Player of the Month

Kicker Greg Zuerlein scored 51 points in October, connecting on 14 field Aaron Loup Jersey goals and nine extra- point attempts.

Though the Rams had their bye last week, one L.A. player did enough in four games to receive a significant accolade.

Kicker Greg Zuerlein has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month after recording 51 points in October — 14 field goals and nine extra points.

Zuerlein had an outstanding Darwin Barney Jersey start to the month, hitting all seven attempted field goals in the Rams’ 35-30 victory over the Cowboys. The kicker was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance.

From there, Zuerlein connected on one field goal against Seattle, two against Jacksonville, and four against Arizona in London.

Through seven games, Zuerlein is the NFL’s scoring leader with 84 total points. He’s 21-of-22 in field goals and 21-of-21 on extra-point attempts.

Zuerlein is the Rams’ second NFC Player of the Month in 2017, as running back Todd Gurley Custom Blue Jays Jersey was the conference’s Offensive Player of the Aaron Sanchez Jersey Month for September. Gurley, Zuerlein, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, and kick returner Pharoh Cooper have also been named NFC Player of the Week in the first eight weeks of the season Dalton Pompey Jersey.

 

Goff Fine Tuning his Skillset Darwin Barney Jersey Following Bye Week

QB Jared Goff said he’s been working on improving the details of his technique as the Rams begin the second half of their season.

Quarterback Jared Goff has clearly taken significant steps in his development from his rookie season to Week 9 of 2017. All that has been well documented on this and many other outlets around the
Darwin Barney Jersey league.

But after seven games, Goff and the rest of the Rams had their bye last week. And the quarterback used that time wisely to rest up after
Dalton Pompey Jersey a long road trip and recuperate for the season’s last nine matchups.

“I was a little banged up — seven games in a row will get you,” Goff said Wednesday. “So I got a little bit of rest in and was able to recover and massage therapy and that stuff. Help me get my body right and just rested. Watched some film. Did a little bit of self-scouting all myself and I know some things I want to work on for sure.”

What are those things?

“I want to continue to work on the details, and continue to stay detailed, and try to clean my footwork up as best I can every game. Be as accurate as I can,” Goff said. “There’s little different tweaks that I’m working on in practice with everything every day. There’s a million things. I don’t know if there’s one in particular. Just continue to try to get better and lead our offense the best way that I can.”

According to two of Los Angeles’ offensive lineman, Goff has been successful in the latter endeavor.

“He’s just starting to mature,” left guard Rodger Saffold said. “He’s been extremely accountable. He’s been real critical of himself, and it’s forcing him to play above even his own expectations.”

“I think he’s always learning. He’s always taking advice from the older guys, like [left tackle Andrew Whitworth] and [center John Sullivan] and feeding off those guys and the knowledge that they have. I think he’s really being a sponge and just allowing himself to grow,” right guard Jamon Brown said. “And on top of that, he’s allowing himself to grow into that leader that this offense needs. And I’m actually excited to see where he’s headed. And I’m just excited to be a part of his growth.”

So far in 2017, Goff has completed 60 percent of his passes for 1,719 yards with nine Custom Blue Jays Jersey touchdowns and four interceptions. He’ll take those stats with him to the East Coast this weekend, as the Rams take on the 1-6 Giants.

Though New York’s record is poor, the team is also coming off a bye. And Los Angeles isn’t taking Giants’ defense lightly.

“I think they’re talented across the board on all three levels,” Goff said mentioning defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, cornerback Eli Apple, and safety Landon Collins. “They’re all great players all across the board and you have to be wary of them and be careful.”

To that end — despite the fact that former Rams corner Janoris Jenkins has been suspended for violating team rules — ball security will once again be critical against a defense that’s recorded three interceptions in its last three games.

“Nothing more important than turnovers — other than points in this league — that determines the outcome of the game, and we’ve got to do a great job offensively of taking care of it,” head coach Sean McVay said. “[Goff] touches the football every single snap, but I think anytime that you go on the road, especially as a young quarterback dealing with the elements and some of the things that you have to do with your cadence, it’s Aaron Sanchez Jersey a great challenge Aaron Loup Jersey for him — one that he’s responded to so far this year when we’ve gone to places where you do have to change up some things because of that noise. And I’m looking forward to seeing him command that as well against the Giants.”

“Obviously, we’ve done some good things in the first seven games to get to 5-2,Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey” Goff said of the offense in general. “I think one thing we look at is, what’s our record when we won the turnover margin? And it’s 5-0. The two games we’ve lost, we’ve lost turnovers.

“I think if we continue to take care of the ball and the defense keeps playing the way that they are, we’ll be happy with what we’re doing,” Goff continued. “But we have some room to improve for sure.”

 

Through 7 Games, Goff has Shown Significant Improvement under McVay

HC Sean McVay said QB Jared Goff has performed well, but has plenty of room to improve in the last nine games.

Quarterback Jared Goff started seven games as a rookie. The results of those contest weren’t what anyone would have wanted — especially considering Los Angeles went 0-7.

But Goff has started seven games in 2017, too, and he’s thrived in head coach Sean McVay’s scheme. The Cal product is currently No. 7 with 1719 yards passing, he’s completing 60 percent of his passes, he has nine touchdowns to just four interceptions, and sports a 90.3 passer rating.

Plus, the quarterback leads a team that’s No. 1 in scoring at 30.3 points per game. You likely don’t need a reminder, but Los Angeles scored only 14.0 points per game in 2016, generating 10 points or Custom Blue Jays Jersey fewer in nine of 16 games.

“I think really he’s done a good job of improving throughout this first part of the season,” McVay said of Goff this week. “I think he’s gotten better and better. I think that anytime that you’re able to learn from your experiences both good and bad, you’re going to give yourself a chance to for growth.”

Goff has done just that over the course of the season. For instance, in the Week 2 contest against Washington, Goff threw an interception to start what could’ve been a game-tying offensive series. A few weeks later against Seattle, Goff nearly led Los Angeles to a last-minute victory, delivering multiple accurate passes to bring the offense into scoring territory.

And the young quarterback continues to recognize where he can make improvements, as illustrated in his postgame comments after Sunday’s 33-0 victory over the Cardinals in London.

Aaron Loup Jersey I would say that I thought I took care of the ball well besides the one play,” Goff said, referring to his interception. “That play is one that’s going to stick with me and bother me for a little while, because it was just a dumb play. Dumb throw. Something I can’t do there. We would have been turnover free without that, I believe. So that’s one that I would like to have back.”

But even when those negative plays happen, McVay has said he’s been particularly impressed with Goff’s ability to come back in a positive manner.

“The one thing that I really have been impressed with with Jared is he takes things so well when they don’t always go our way,” McVay said. “You look at the way that he responded after we turned the ball over the other day, he responds with a great 16-play drive, had a couple good third-down conversions there where he’s throwing the football and [making] good decisions. I think he’s really doing a great job.”

The emergence of the Rams’ ground game with running back Todd Gurley has also clearly aided Goff and the rest of the unit.

“Whenever he’s getting going it obviously helps our whole offense,” Goff said. “I love handing Aaron Sanchez Jersey off the ball and letting him run. There’s nothing better than that — letting him go. Then, obviously, it opens up the pass rush a lot more. So any time we can get him going, we want to. And I think it’s a testament to the guys up front ultimately — I think he would say the same thing. It’s nice having the holes he’s having now and him doing the rest.”

But McVay gave credit to Goff as well for the way the run game has been handled. And that’s part of what the head coach wants to
Darwin Barney Jersey continue to see as the season goes on.

“I think sometimes there’s things that take place where it might just be his handling of the run game that you can’t always appreciate that might not show up on the stats,” McVay said. “But I think he’s just
Dalton Pompey Jersey continuing to take an ownership on our offense. We talk about being an extension of the coaching staff and I think he is truly starting to become that.

“But, he’s only going to continue to grow and get better,” McVay continued. “And in terms of where we want him to be, I think we just want him to just continue to take those daily steps and he’s done that and been receptive.”

 

Phillips, Manning Family Darwin Barney Jersey Ties Run Deep

DC Wade Phillips detailed his long history with the Manning family in his Thursday press conference.

When you’ve been a NFL coach as long as Wade Phillips, you tend to get connected with different families around the league.

Facing quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants on Sunday, the
Darwin Barney Jersey defensive coordinator began his Thursday press conference illustrating just how far back he and the Manning family go.

“I’ve had a long relationship, I guess you’d say, with the Manning family,” Phillips said. “Archie was with us at New Orleans. I know him — that’s a great family. Peyton, obviously, was with us at Denver.

“And then Eli was with us at San Diego — for about two minutes,” Phillips added with a laugh.

Phillips is referring, of course, to the famous trade between the Chargers and Giants in 2004. Back then, Phillips was defensive coordinator to head coach Marty Schottenheimer in San Diego. The Chargers selected Eli Manning with the No. 1 overall pick and sent him to the Giants in exchange for first, third, and fifth-round picks. Oh, and some quarterback named Philip Rivers, who New York had chosen at No. 4 overall.

But Phillips was the defensive coordinator to his father, Bum, when Archie Manning was quarterback of the Saints in the early 80s. And he was the defensive coordinator of the Broncos in 2015, when Denver won the Super Bowl with Aaron Loup Jersey Peyton Manning.

Even though he never quite coached Eli Manning, Phillips has faced him a number of times. As head coach of the Cowboys from 2007-2010, Phillips squared off against Manning twice per season, with varying degrees of success.

“Unfortunately, we saw him three times one year and we beat them twice during the regular season, then they beat us in the playoffs and won the Super Bowl,” Phillips said, referring to the 2007 season when the Giants beat the Patriots.

But it’s been a while since Aaron Sanchez Jersey Phillips coached in the NFC East, and he can see the growth from Manning since Custom Blue Jays Jersey that time.

“The talent is there, and plus he’s obviously more experienced now,” Phillips said. “He’s one of those quarterbacks that, he knows what coverage you’re in even if you disguise things. He knows when you’re blitzing — those kind of guys are hard to blitz. They know where to go to and quickly to do it. He’s a complete quarterback, he wouldn’t have all of the rings and the championships he’s had without being a great player.”

That’s why even though the Giants haven’t gotten off to an ideal start in 2017, Phillips isn’t taking Manning lightly.

“What a great career he’s had and he’s a tremendous player,” Phillips said. “You can say 1-6, but this guy is a great quarterback, so we have all Dalton Pompey Jersey the respect in the world for him and what they can do. They had a week off like we did and I know we feel rejuvenated. I think you got to expect the other team to feel the same way. I expect it to be a heck of a game.”

 

McVay Visits FOX Studios Aaron Loup Jersey During Bye Week

Without a game to coach on Sunday, HC Sean McVay appeared on FOX’s NFL pregame shows.

The Rams were off on Sunday for their bye week, but Sean McVay still found a way to be around the game.

With FOX’s two NFL pregame shows based out of Los Angeles, the Rams’ head coach made his way to FOX Studios to appear on the broadcasts. In the process, McVay got to meet and talk with analysts
Aaron Loup Jersey like former Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson and former Falcons and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.

“It was fun. It was a great group of guys,” McVay said. “I had met a couple of them. Obviously, I had a lot of respect for some of the players and meeting coach Johnson, getting a chance to talk to him.

“That’s Darwin Barney Jersey the one thing that I would say is probably the best part about this job — is the platform it provides to get exposure to special people like a handful of those guys that I got a chance to meet yesterday, kind of pick their brain,” McVay continued. “They had some fun with some of the gameshows — we had a good time with that yesterday.”

McVay was only at the studios for a couple of hours before taking in the full slated of games back at home. But during the show, the head coach got a bit of a surprise when Vick appeared in McVay’s high school jersey. McVay, of course, was named Georgia 4A Offensive Player of the Year after leading his team to a state championship.

“I was Custom Blue Jays Jersey caught off guard. I didn’t realize they were going to do that,” McVay admitted Monday. “Mike was a guy I was huge fan of just growing up in the Atlanta area as a mobile quarterback — kind of changed the way that people had to defend him, because he was so electric as a runner and then he could beat you with his arm as well. They really got things going there.

“It was cool, because I had never got a chance to meet Mike before and just talking to those guys and Greg Jennings,” McVay added. “I had met Tony Gonzalez through some mutual friends already, but being able to meet those players and then talk to Jimmy Johnson, you talk to Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw – that a fun experience to be able to have to continue to meet and learn from those guys.”

Leading into the bye, McVay had lead he wanted to relax and decompress a bit before returning for the second half of the season. The head coach said he was able to do that over a few days off, also making a trip to Chavez Ravine.

“Really, you look at just traveling as much as we did, just was able to stay at home and relax for a few days Dalton Pompey Jersey,” McVay said. “Went to Game 2 of the World Series which, would’ve liked a different outcome, but what a great atmosphere being down there and seeing those guys compete. It was a great, competitive game. Then, going over to FOX Studios yesterday — but I was able to relax, get away. You enjoy sitting around watching some football and kind of feeling like a fan. That’s what we did yesterday.”

Now McVay and the Rams are back at their day jobs, preparing for Sunday’s matchup with the Giants in New Jersey.

“Traveling on a Friday, we’ve got to make sure that we have good focus and concentration as we prepare for them starting on Wednesday, because the players will be off again tomorrow and then we’ll come back Wednesday and resume our normal Aaron Sanchez Jersey schedule,” McVay said.

 

McVay’s Message Resonating Aaron Loup Jersey within Rams

HC Sean McVay’s consistent messages of daily improvement and daily excellence have set the Rams on the path for success.

When Sean McVay was hired as head coach in January, he set out a vision for what he wanted the Rams to look like.

“We’re going to be committed to our process and we’re going to be
Aaron Loup Jersey committed to a standard of performance,” McVay said on January 12. “And those things are going to be focused on daily improvement and daily excellence.”

That message has been consistent throughout the Aaron Sanchez Jersey season, reinforced every day from the start of the offseason program to now — where the Rams find themselves 5-2 heading into their Week 8 bye.

There’s been plenty of changes for the franchise over the last 10 months since McVay’s hiring, and the entire organization — from the coaches, to the players, to the front office — has clearly bought into what the head head coach is preaching.

“I think when you get good people that are bought in, it’s just taking it one day at a time,” McVay said this week. “I think we’ve got a lot of people pushing in the same direction and I think that’s very critical for what we want to try to accomplish both as a coaching staff and with our players.”

Any time a new head coach is brought in, there are questions about how he changes the culture. Those have been consistently asked about the Rams since the offseason program, but midway through the season, there are tangible results.

Players have talked a lot about how McVay has raised the team’s accountability. And according to right guard Jamon Brown, that has to do with a lot of the little things.

“When guys are doing the right things, then he rewards us. And when we’re doing the wrong things, like being late somewhere or maybe not making weight range or different things like that, [we’re] being fined,” Brown said. “Just keeping guys and making sure we’re sticking to that accountability level. He’s really raised that and Custom Blue Jays Jersey his expectations of us all across the board.”

That includes on the practice field, too. Defensive lineman Aaron Donald said, “One little mistake they are going to do Darwin Barney Jersey the whole practice over again. It’s something that you want to see. You want them to be perfect because you practice the way you play.”

That accountability extends to the head coach, too. McVay often says that if he wants the players to continuously look at themselves critically, then he has to do the same. Lately, that’s been displayed in McVay’s press conferences when he discusses his use of timeouts.

“All jokes aside, some of those timeouts is inexcusable and those are things that are very important and really, when you look at the other day and we ended up using those, there was clearly a ruling that would have gone the other way if we had that available and we didn’t,” McVay said. “And it didn’t hurt us, but that’s where if we’re going to talk about process over results, I’ve got to be the same way as a coach and make sure that I’m looking at myself critically with regards to the game management just leading in the right way.”

McVay’s messages have also been consistently reinforced through slogans and sayings players see on the walls throughout the club’s facility at Cal Lutheran. Many of them have to do with the team being more important than the individual, the standard of performance, daily excellence, daily improvement, and trusting the method of development.

“I think those visual aids are certainly very helpful as kind of a reminder of how we want to operate. But if you don’t live those things that you’re seeing on those walls and things like that, it kind of really doesn’t mean much,” McVay said. “We always talk about our process and a standard of performance and what that can lead to, being connected as a team, the ‘We not me.’ So, all those things are things that we believe in.”

According to left tackle Andrew Whitworth, McVay set the Rams on the right path with those kinds of messages from the start of the offseason program.

“I think Sean really put us in the right direction in those ways,” Whitworth said. “We talk all the time about ‘The Standard,’ and, really, what we expect from every guy every day, and the daily improvement, and the daily things that we want guys to do.”

And about halfway through the season, McVay’s going to keep harping on the same themes to push the Rams toward a successful finish.

“We’re only seven games into this,” McVay Dalton Pompey Jersey said, “but I think being focused on that process and then having some of your best players and your leaders set the standard day-in and day-out is going to be key for us moving forward.”

 

Practice Report: Rams Custom Angels Jersey Arrive in England

The Rams are getting adjusted to the U.K. time zone in anticipation of their matchup with the Cardinals on Sunday.

BAGSHOT, Surrey, England — The Rams have arrived in the United Kingdom and are getting settled in as they prepare for Sunday’s matchup with the Cardinals.

Here are a few notes from the club’s International Series
Custom Angels Jersey practice on Friday afternoon.

INJURY REPORT

The Rams have two players with an injury status for Sunday.

After not participating in Wednesday and Thursday’s sessions, linebacker Mark Barron (thumb) was limited on Friday. He’s questionable for this week’s game.

Safety Cody Davis (thigh) did not practice all week and he’s been listed as doubtful.

Left tackle Andrew Whitworth was listed as a limited participant in Friday’s practice, but he does not have an injury status and as such is expected to play.

While he’s missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, safety Lamarcus Joyner has been a full participant in all three practices this week and is expected to start against Arizona.

The Cardinals have five players with an injury status and all are questionable: linebacker Karlos Dansby (hamstring), running back Andre Ellington (quad), defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche (calf), defensive lineman Olsen Pierre (ankle), and defensive lineman Xavier Williams (knee).

Cornerback Patrick Peterson (quad), offensive tackle Jared Veldheer (knee), and defensive lineman Corey Peters (knee) were limited participants on Wednesday and Thursday, but were full participants on Friday. As such, they do not have an injury status and are expected to play.

GETTING SETTLED ACROSS THE POND

As has been well Bart Starr Jersey publicized, the Rams have to travel a lot this season — just as they did in
Custom Orioles Jersey 2016.

Another London trip meant another long flight across the Atlantic. But this time, L.A. elected to stay on the East Coast for most of the week before making the trip across the pond.

That’s the method head coach Sean McVay had experienced as a coordinator with Washington last year. And so far, it seems to be working for the Rams.

“I’ve really been impressed with our team’s ability to handle the last week, with all the traveling we’ve done,” McVay said. “They’ve just kind of continued to go about their work in a very business-like manner, but still have allowed themselves to have fun doing it. And that’s a credit to our team and our players.”

“We came directly after a game last year and didn’t really have time to rest before you go on the flight,” middle linebacker Alec Ogletree said. “So, this week we stayed in Jacksonville all week and kind Custom Angels Jersey of rested, prepared really well and then came up here. I think everybody is feeling pretty good so far.”

Ogletree complimented McVay and the staff for keeping much of the schedule the same despite the different locations.

“We tried to do normally what Houston Astros Custom Jersey we do every week and that’s have meetings when we do normally, and just move on and get ready for the next game,” Ogletree said. “I think coach did a great job of having everything set up for us to stay on the same schedule. Hopefully we put on a good show this Sunday.”

The team plane departed Jacksonville at about 8 p.m. EDT on Thursday, and arrived at London Heathrow Airport at about 9 a.m. BST. Following Friday’s practice, a few players said they were able to get in some sleep on the red-eye flight.

“I’m a little tired still, but I definitely slept the whole time,” running back Todd Gurley said.

“We got some good bonding time and we were able to sleep a little bit on the plane, so we feel good,” quarterback Jared Goff said.

That’s in contrast to their head coach, as McVay didn’t quite get the rest he would’ve liked.

“Well, my red eyes say no,” McVay replied when asked if he got any sleep. “I tried to sleep for a little bit — started out sleeping, felt like I was sleeping for about three hours, and then I realized it was only about 30 minutes. So I haven’t gotten as much sleep as I’d like.

“But it was similar last year when I was in Washington — we traveled on a Thursday and then I was able to get a good night’s sleep [on Friday]. But I think our players did do a good job of being able to get some rest. I was really impressed with just their tempo and their energy in practice today. And that was encouraging because it’s more important for those guys to feel fresh than me.”

Still, traveling so much can be a bit disorienting, as defensive lineman Michael Brockers put it following Friday’s practice.

“I don’t know how I’m feeling, I’m just in limbo,” Brockers said with a laugh. “I was tired a little bit earlier, and then talking about football and going into the film room kind of got me up. As for right now, I’m like I don’t know where I’m at. I don’t know if I’m tired, I don’t know if I’m ready to go see London. I’ll see after I get in and get settled a little bit.”

Aside from the travel, one element that’s different about playing an international game is the fans. It’s no secret that soccer is the more popular sport around here, and perhaps because of that, kickers and punters might get a few more cheers than they normally would.

“They’re fun, it’s a lot of fun, especially during the games,” Goff said. “You don’t really know when they are going to cheer, when they’re not. It’s not really their fault, but we were talking about it with Greg [Zuerlein] and Johnny [Hekker] — they are going to, from my Ray Nitschke Jersey experience cheer, when we punt and kick. So we should be OK on offense.”

With the Rams in the U.K. only for a couple days, there likely won’t be much time for sightseeing on this trip. And that’s OK for the players, who said they’re focused on improving Los Angeles’ season record.

“If we can leave out of this 5-2,” Brockers said, “I think I’ll be happy.”

 

Opponent Breakdown: Bart Starr Jersey Peterson’s Impact on the Cardinals’ Offense

Though he was just traded to Arizona on Oct. 10, RB Adrian Peterson has made a clear impact on the Cardinals’ offense.

BAGSHOT, Surrey, England — As division rivals, the Rams
Bart Starr Jersey and Cardinals know each other’s personnel pretty well. Quarterback Carson Palmer has been with Arizona since head coach Bruce Arians arrived in 2013. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has seemingly played forever, now in his 14th pro season.

But Arizona has one new offensive weapon, and he certainly has made an impact in just a short time with the club: running back Adrian Peterson.

With star running back David Johnson on injured reserve, the Cardinals sent a conditional sixth-round pick to the Saints on Oct. 10 to acquire Peterson. Arizona received an immediate return on the deal, as Peterson rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals’ 38-33 victory over the Buccaneers last week.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said this week that he thinks Peterson’s performance “gave their offense as a whole and, really, their team a bunch of juice.”

“One of the things that you’ve always been impressed with him is his patience to the line and then when he makes a decision, he can explode and accelerate in and out of cuts,” McVay said. “He can go through you, he can make
Ray Nitschke Jersey you miss, so he showed those things.”

“He just adds a different dynamic to their offensive scheme,” middle linebacker Alec Ogletree said. “They pretty much do the same stuff, but having him [they’re] basically saying, ‘My athlete is better than yours.’ So you have to win your one-on-one matchups and be able to tackle.”

Though Peterson turned 32 in March, he’s still showing the burst and explosion that’s made him one of the best in league history to ever play the position.

“He’s the top of the food chain,” Rams running back Todd Gurley said. “He’s the best of the best. He’s been doing this a while. Nothing but respect for him.”

“He’s a great back and you could tell that he still has a lot to offer to the table. And he’s in a great situation out there in Arizona,” Ogletree said. “They just turned around and handed it to him and let him do what he does. I don’t think he got a chance to really do much of that in New Orleans, so Arizona — that’s what they like to do. And he’s a great back for them to do that with.”

The Rams are plenty familiar with Peterson, as he’s faced the team four times in his career, with varying degrees of success. The club Custom Angels Jersey last opposed the running back in 2015, when Peterson rushed for 125 yards on 29 carries. Defensive lineman Michael Brockers also referenced the 2012 matchup with Minnesota, where Peterson gained 212 yards on 24 carries.

“Man when you have the name ‘All Day’ as your nickname, it’s kind of hard to back that up — and he can give it to you all day,” Brockers said. “I have been a part of that game where he has had 200 yards and you just can’t stop him. So we just have to get him before he gets started, get him in the backfield, get tackles for loss, and mess up their rhythm.”

Squaring off against Peterson will undoubtedly Houston Astros Custom Jersey be a challenge, but it’s one the Rams are embracing.

“It definitely makes it more fun,” Ogletree said. “As a defense you go out there and you want to stop the best. He’s one of the best to play this game. Like I said, with a great week of preparation I think we’ll be ready for him for sure.”

“When you are facing a good back like this and you know the challenge is on you to stop him, it’s always, you know we love a challenge,” Brockers said. ”We love to hear that this is a good running game and they are coming in to smash mouth and play real football. We accept that, we love those challenges Custom Orioles Jersey and we’re looking forward to this game, it’s a divisional game. They know us, we know them, they don’t like us very much, we don’t like them very much. Custom Astros Jersey It’s going to be an all out war.”

 

Halftime Notes: Rams Lead Custom Astros Jersey Cardinals in London, 23-0

The Rams’ defense has played well, shutting out the Cardinals through the first two quarters.

TWICKENHAM, England — The Rams’ defense has played well, shutting out the Cardinals through the first two quarters. Custom Astros Jersey Here are a few notes from the first half, as Los Angeles leads in London, 23-0.

INTERCEPTION LEADS TO TOUCHDOWN

Midway through the second quarter, the Rams’ offense and defense worked together to get the club’s first touchdown of the day.

Playing in his first game since Week 3 after suffering a hamstring injury, Lamarcus Joyner picked off a Carson Palmer deep ball at about midfield and returned the pick to the Arizona 18-yard line. Middle linebacker Alec Ogletree had a big hit on Palmer on the play, inducing the errant throw.

It didn’t take long for Los Angeles’ offense to take advantage of the red-zone opportunity. On 1st-and-10, quarterback Jared Goff handed off to running back Custom Orioles Jersey Todd Gurley to the left. Gurley bounced the ball outside, got a nice block from wideout Tavon Austin to spring him, and finished the play by diving past an Arizona defender into the end zone.

Palmer suffered a left arm injury on the play, and was replaced on the Cardinals’ next drive by backup signal-caller Drew Stanton.

TWO-MINUTE SUCCESS

Los Angeles extended its lead with an outstanding two-minute drive.

Starting the possession backed up on their own 12-yard line, Goff engineered a 88-yard drive that took just over a minute off the clock. The signal-caller induced a neutral-zone infraction to make a 3rd-and-9 play 3rd-and-4 instead, and took advantage with a strong throw for a first down.

The drive finished with Goff keeping a zone read and running the ball to the right deep in the red zone for a touchdown, making the score 20-0.

Linebacker Mark Barron then started the ensuing drive with an interception off Stanton. Zuerlein hit a 53-yard field goal as time expired in the half to give L.A. a 23-0 lead.

EARLY RED ZONE ISSUES, BUT HAVE THEY BEEN FIXED?

The Rams scored on two of their first three drives, but only came away with six points.

On Los Angeles’ opening drive, Goff connected with wide receivers Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins, and Cooper Kupp for first downs. Though L.A. advanced the ball all the way to the five-yard line, Goff couldn’t connect with Kupp on 3rd-and-4 and L.A. had to settle for a Greg Zuerlein 2 Bart Starr Jersey 3-yard field goal.

Then in the second quarter, the Rams again got the ball into the red zone with a bit of help, as Goff’s hard count induced an offsides penalty and a neutral-zone infraction flag. But after running back Todd Gurley’s six-yard run brought up 2nd-and-4, the Rams had a piar of incomplete pases, and had to settle for a 33-yard field goal Custom Angels Jersey.

All that said, the Rams did get into the end zone on one play on their third red-zone opportunity. So it’s possible those issues have been corrected.

INJURY REPORT

Wide receiver Josh Reynolds has been ruled out with a concussion. The rookie may have suffered the injury on the game’s opening kickoff.
