“Skowornek is suddenly an important part of this offense, and not necessarily as a traditional wide receiver. He once again lined up at fullback a bunch against the Cardinals, and on Cam Akers’ touchdown run, he made a fantastic block on linebacker Zaven Collins to spring Akers free.”

“As part of a resilient defensive effort, Donald became the fastest defensive tackle in league history to reach 100 career sacks, doing so in his 130th game. He brought down Murray late in the first quarter on Sunday for a 15-yard loss, eventually forcing an Arizona punt.”

In the first two games this season, the LA Rams had been outscored 45-10 in the second half. Their opponent, the Cardinals, had the opposite experience, outscoring their opponents in the second half 36-21.”

“He also had a costly fumble on the goal line, the second time he’s fumbled it at the 1-yard line since last postseason. Had he punched it in, the Rams would’ve gone up 27-9 and all but put the game to rest.
