More to come on this as we continue to look at the committee, but the running game yet again provided an unexpected twist. Yesterday, it was the Tre Mason show with a heavy dose of Benny Cunningham in there especially for passing situations when the Rams weren't empty in the backfield. Whether this was due to a latent Zac Stacy injury or just to throw something unexepected at the Seahawks in large quantities (as the Rams did against Seattle last year on Monday Night Football with Zac Stacy), I'm not sure. But I don't expect a similar plan and/or output in Kansas City on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Brian Quick has established himself pretty firmly as the Rams' top receiver. Nevertheless, to see him miss only a single snap is a testament to the teams' dedication to him. Obviously, though, the numbers are a bit disjointed with the heaviness the Rams favored. Cook and Kendricks both topped the two-thirds mark and Corey Harkey nearly hit 50%. For reference, Kendricks was under 50% last week, and Harkey barely got past 20%.

The Rams were dedicated to pressure from the snap count. Michael Brockers hit his lowest percentage of snaps as the Rams forewent the pivot anchor he provides on the line in favor of more pass rushing from Quinn, Hayes, Donald and Sims.

It was also the least work for Jo-Lonn Dunbar this year. I talked about how the injury really affected him on Monday Night Football a week ago through the week, so I'd suspect that had more to do with his drop than any overriding scheme shift.

And with Trumaine Johnson and perhaps Brandon McGee nearly back, I'd at least point to Marcus Roberson picking up some playing time at corner yesterday. The depth here is strong, and may need to be called on further if Janoris Jenkins misses some time.

Mo Alexander was inactive this week, leaving room for Chase Reynolds to return. Overall, it was a lighter approach to special work this week. Ethan Westbrooks was inactive and Eugene Sims and Michael Brockers, who featured heavily against the Niners, saw a big drop as Brockers didn't log a special teams snap.
