Bills vs Rams Game Balls: Who Performed Best in the Loss?

New, comments

Who gets the game ball from the disappointing week 5 loss?

The trend continues.

The Rams maintain the ability to defeat their NFC West rivals, but get caught with their pants down against everyone else. For those who are just getting to know Jeff Fisher’s Rams, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Sunday’s debacle was another example of that. The Rams had several opportunities to win their game against the Bills, but critical errors from both coaches and players submarined the Rams effort.

That being said, there are some performances worth noting from yesterday. A trio of Rams stood out from the rest and deserve some recognition.

Kenny Britt

While he hasn’t found the end zone yet, Britt caught 5 of 6 balls thrown his way for 75 yards. While unspectacular in and of itself, it’s impressive when put into the context of recent Rams WR history.

Britt is quietly on pace for 1139 yards. That’s astounding for a Rams WR. If he’s able to keep his production at this level, it will be the best production the Rams have gotten from a WR since Torry Holt had 1189 yards way back in 2007.

Greg Zuerlein

Let’s give credit where credit is due. Legatron has silenced most of his doubters and is a perfect 9 for 9 on field goal attempts - including two from 50+ - and all 7 PATs (yes, the Rams have only scored 7 TDs).

He’s not a liability anymore, folks.

Ethan Westbrooks

When it was announced that the Rams would be without Michael Brockers, William Hayes, and Robert Quinn, fans everywhere cringed.

Westbrooks came through with two QB hits and one of the Rams two sacks on the afternoon. He didn’t light the world of fire by any means, but as the fourth DE on a team, that’s pretty damn impressive.
