Even though DE Aaron Donald hasn’t gathering up sacks, he has been a terrifying figure to play against. QB Drew Brees looks like he’s going to be hampered with a bothersome hand injury for the foreseeable future because it collided with Donald.
Mass x acceleration = force:
Instead of taking the angle that the refs blew a call and changed the complexion of the game - a theory I don’t subscribe to - I would like to talk more about how close the Rams came to giving up six easy points.
It was this close:
Here is the play in question by someone very angry about it:

As a QB Jared Goff stan, I would like to make it clear that his touchdown pass to WR Brandin Cooks in the 3rd quarter was a laser beam of awesomeness and should be celebrated on every future September 15th for the rest of time. We can call it “Laser Day” and nerds can pretend they're celebrating how cool lasers are, but LA Rams fans will know that it’s really a day to talk about how awesome that play was.
Outstanding catch and run from Kupp here, but check out the hustle from 17 on this play. pic.twitter.com/gQ9I5KqiC3— Bate™ (@NoPlanB_) September 16, 2019
WR Brandin Cooks joked that the spectacular run after the catch by WR Cooper Kupp was something out of a movie. He’s right. It was so fun to watch because Kupp seems genuinely surprised and thrilled that he hasn’t been tackled yet. And when Goff snuck the ball in, it was all a beautiful masterpiece.
The LA Rams are 2-0, jerks!
