Well, this “lowlight” could be considered an absolute nitpick, but there’s got to be a play selected as the lowlight, so this is it. On a day where the Los Angeles Rams as a whole team could do no wrong, the only blemish on an otherwise pristine day was this dinky little drive that ended in a weak TD from Russell Wilson to Luke Willson. The Rams were winning by 40+ at this point, so it was majorly irrelevant in the grand scope of things.
The Rams were lined up on 3rd-and-20 with 37-seconds remaining in the half (right after a strip-sack), and as Jared Goff stated in his press conference yesterday, they were happy to run out the clock and get to halftime, but Todd Gurley and the offensive line had other ideas. On an outside zone run to the left, Andrew Whitworth lets his DE get up field and turns him out, meanwhile Rodger Saffold and Sammy Watkins through blocks downfield to allow Gurley to get to the second level of the defense. Once Gurley gets vertical, he simply turned on the jets and outraced every defender for a 56-yard scamper into the endzone, effectively putting the game out of hand before halftime.
