Here are Pro Football Focus’ notes on the Los Angeles Rams’ 33-31 Week 5 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

OFFENSE

- For only the second time in his career, right tackle Rob Havenstein earned an elite run-blocking grade (90.0+) with his 90.7. The last time he did that was week 10 of his rookie season against the Chicago Bears. Overall, he was the Rams’ highest graded player on offense with his 86.4 and allowed only one quarterback pressure on 38 pass-blocking snaps.

- Before leaving the game with a concussion, wide receiver Cooper Kupp turned all six of his receptions into a first down or a touchdown. He finished with the highest receiving grade among seven players to catch a pass despite his drop (75.2). He also added two avoided tackles after the catch to bring his season total up to five, tied for 10th most among wide receivers.

DEFENSE

- In his first start of the season, cornerback Troy Hill made the most of it. He earned an overall grade of 81.7 for his defense against the Seahawks and a coverage grade of 88.2. He was targeted only twice on 17 coverage snaps and allowed one catch for five yards while breaking the other target up. Hill has now played 33 coverage snaps on the season and has only those two targets thrown at him for an overall coverage grade of 84.0.

- Linebacker Cory Littleton made two huge plays on Sunday with one coming as a pass-rusher and the other while in coverage. The first came on a target thrown into his coverage that was right down the seams, which he got his hands on to break up. In total he was targeted three times on 20 coverage snaps and allowed a passer rating of 50.7. The second play came when he got pressure on quarterback Russell Wilson and forced him to throw it away on a third-and-23 that would ultimately be the last time the Seahawks touched the ball. He earned a 74.5 pass-rushing grade for the game, a season-high for Littleton.
