TE Gerald Everett
Everett had a game to forget. He actually had three receptions for 16 yards, but he was mistake prone on Sunday. By my count he had about four dropped passes, some which would of went for large gains. Not only that, but he also fumbled the ball, and the 49ers recovered. The cherry on top of his bad day was a running into the kicker penalty on a Punter which extended a drive on 4th down.
QB Sean Mannion
Sean Mannion wasn’t the main source of trouble for the Rams offense, but he didn’t look great either. Like most teams, if their QB goes down, their season is over, and that is no different for the Rams. Sean Mannion is a fine developmental QB, but his inaccuracies and inability to extend plays are evident, as well as a few mistake prone passes. The Rams should look to upgrade the backup QB position in the offseason.
ILB Cory Littleton
Cory Littleton is a tale of two halves, which is why it hurts to put him here. Littleton is very inconsistent. Since taking over for Barron, he’s had multiple splash plays and a handful of great open field tackles, but then he’s dropped back in coverage and struggles. Coverage isn’t his best ability, though he does splash as well.
CB Kevin Peterson
Peterson had an incredible game on Sunday, which is a strong showing for a group who just recently suffered a season-ending injury to CB Kayvon Webster. With a great performance like the one Peterson had on Sunday, he could push for more playing time. He totaled two interceptions and a pass deflection on 3rd down on Sunday.
K Sam Ficken
After struggling badly in his first NFL game, Sam Ficken bounced back in a positive manner. Sure, he wasn’t asked to hit long field goals on the regular, but it was good to see him be more accurate and confident on his kicks. He went 2/2 on FG attempts, and 1/1 on XP’s. The Rams still take a huge downgrade from Zuerlein here, because Ficken’s range isn’t nearly the same or accurate, but maybe Ficken can build off an okay performance.
