Wentz was clearly got the better of Goff in their first matchup. After an early interception, Wentz settled down and threw for 4 TDs and nearly 300 yards. The Rams just didn’t have an answer for his precision passing. Unfortunately, the story now is how long he will be out with a torn ACL.
As a Rams fan who had to deal with the endless knee issues of Sam Bradford, my heart goes out to Eagles fans. The road ahead is tough.
I’ll take the egg on the face here. Ertz cleared the concussion protocol earlier in the week but did not dress for the game.
You just can’t guard against that. Sometimes a player of Jeffery’s caliber is just going to beat you with a play like this. And it pretty well sums up the afternoon that the Rams defense had.
I was a bit underwhelmed with the impact that Kendricks had. I was expecting an All-Pro performance and I can’t remember his name being called much during the game. Credit to the Rams OL for taking their best LB out of the equation - it had a lot to do with Todd Gurley’s success.
McLeod recovered the game changing fumble that was caused by Chris Long, but other than that he wasn’t a huge factor in the game. When he was with the Rams I felt he was held afloat by good play around him, and I got that feeling again on Sunday.
At least he’s getting paid better for it now.
