Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks: Rams to watch revisited

The Los Angeles Rams seemed determined to make fans sweat through another close game yesterday. Luckily, they were able to close out the Seattle Seahawks and avoided losing consecutive games for the first time under head coach Sean McVay.

Wags picked some doozies here and was mostly spot on.

Marcus Peters

Peters didn’t get torched against the Seahawks. That alone can be looked at as progress for the maligned Rams CB. He wasn’t spectacular, but he didn’t need to be as the Rams kept Seahawks QB Russell Wilson under 200 yards.

Dante Fowler

Fowler looked to be more comfortable this weekend than he was against the New Orleans Saints. He couldn’t quite make a tackle on an end around that would have been a significant stop for the Rams, but he did have an extremely timely strip sack late in the game.

It will never be all sunshine and rainbows, but I look forward to seeing him grow into a role on this defense the next few weeks.

Brandin Cooks

Steady as ever, Cooks had another 100 yard outing against the Seahawks. He caught 10 passes for 100 on the nose and added a 9 yard rush TD. With fellow WR Cooper Kupp out for the season with a torn ACL, look for Cooks to play a bigger role moving forward.

Gerald Everett

Speaking of players who will need to step up with Kupp out, Young Gerald also finds himself in that boat. Everett had two catches for 15 yards and a TD, and the TEs overall had a pretty good day as they snagged both of Goff’s TD passes.

Look for that trend to continue as Goff looks to find a new security blanket.

Ndomukong Suh

While he loaded the box score with 9 tackles, 3 QB hits, and half a sack..... Suh’s play left something to be desired. It’s hard to feel good about the performance of a run stuffer when the Rams gave up 273 yards rushing. That’s not to say that falls 100% on Suh’s shoulders, but he certainly owns a part of the blame there.
