Los Angeles Rams vs. Los Angeles Chargers: Matchups to watch revisited

Postby panxing18 » Mon Jan 14, 2019 3:00 am

The Los Angeles Rams have managed to rattle off another convincing win over the Los Angeles Chargers.Now they head into week three by kicking off the week on Thursday Night Football versus the Minnesota Vikings.Before we get into week four Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey , let’s take a look at the matchups to watch from week three:LT Andrew Whitworth/RT Rob Havenstein vs OLB Melvin IngramLast week’s matchup to watch:This battle turned out to be a massive win for the Rams’ offensive tackles. Melvin Ingram was simply invisible the entire game. I’m not sure that he even had a pressure, that’s how much time Jared Goff had in the pocket. If the Rams’ offense is going to continue to click it’s because the offensive line continues to dominate.CB’s Marcus Peters/Aqib Talib vs WR’s Keenan Allen/Mike WilliamsLast week’s matchup to watch:Well, this battle couldn’t have gone much worse. First, Mike Williams smoked Marcus Peters for a 45-yard touchdown in the first quarter (could have been a missed assignment). Not only that, but both Peters and Talib got hurt in this game - with the latter sustaining a high ankle sprain that may require surgery and the former a calf strain that could force him to miss week four. Williams finished with 81 yards and two touchdowns, though Allen was held in check with only 44 yards.Rams’ DL vs Chargers’ OLLast week’s matchup to watch:This one was probably a wash considering the Rams won a few battles (two sacks) though majority of the day was clean pockets for Philip Rivers. The Rams’ defensive line just needs to hit home more. Pressures are great, but we just seen what they can be worth, and that’s nothing when a good QB carves you up. WR Brandin Cooks vs CB Casey HaywardLast week’s matchup to watch:Brandin Cooks had himself another very good game registering seven receptions for 90 yards, though it was Robert Woods who tore the Chargers up with 10 receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns. Cooper Kupp got into the action with four receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown as well. This can be considered a massive win for the weapons of the Rams.K Sam Ficken vs. himselfLast week’s matchup to watch:Meh. I am quite surprised that Ficken was actually able to score all five of his extra points Womens Ndamukong Suh Jersey , though he didn’t do great otherwise. You simply can’t kick the ball out of bounds on a kickoff in this league - that free yardage netted the Chargers an immediate scoring drive. Not only that, but a last-second field goal attempt from 46 yards before halftime was no good. Those are the situations where missing Greg Zuerlein will hurt the most.ILB Cory Littleton/SS Marqui Christian vs RB Austin EkelerLast week’s matchup to watch:The Rams’ defense managed to hold both Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler in check. Littleton had a tremendous day, though it came from the likes of a blocked punt on special teams that was recovered by FS Blake Countess for a touchdown.Another game, another win. It seems to be becoming a theme, so let’s hope the Rams can continue the streak in week four. Through five weeks, the Los Angeles Rams have handled every challenge thrown their way.Doesn't matter if they've been involved in blowouts, shootouts or close games that come down to the final moments, the results have all been the same: another Rams win.And because of that, they are the unanimous top team in the latest AP Pro32 poll for the third consecutive week.Once again http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/michael-brockers-jersey , the Rams received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL."The Rams keep finding different ways to win," Newsday's Bob Glauber said."On a day when Jared Goff isn't sharp, Todd Gurley scores three touchdowns and Sean McVay makes a gutsy fourth-down call to ice the Seahawks in a shootout win."And the Rams will look to extend their perfect start as they head to Denver to take on the Broncos.The league's other 5-0 team, the Kansas City Chiefs, stayed at No. 2. The Chiefs face their biggest test of the season so far when they travel to Foxborough, Massachusetts to face Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday night. The Patriots jumped three spots to No. 4."Showdown looms with KC," Fox Sports' John Czarnecki said.The Saints inched up a spot to No. 3 after Drew Brees became the NFL's all-time leader in yards passing in New Orleans' 43-19 rout of Washington on Monday night.The Cincinnati Bengals, who pulled off an unlikely fourth-quarter rally to beat the Miami Dolphins 27-17 on Sunday, moved up a spot to No. 5. The next two weeks could go a long way in determining how the Bengals do this season. This week Authentic Todd Gurley II Jersey , the Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a key AFC North matchup. Coach Marvin Lewis is 2-15 at home against their rivals, including the postseason.And the following week, their matchup against the Chiefs got flexed into the Sunday night slot. Cincinnati is 6-14 in prime-time games since 2011, including 0-5 on Sunday night."We'll know a lot more about the Bengals after they face the Steelers and Chiefs in the next two weeks, but this team is playing smart, winning football," said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa.The Carolina Panthers, who squeaked past the New York Giants on Graham Gano's 63-yard field goal with 1 second remaining Sunday, jumped three spots to No. 6.The Jacksonville Jaguars dropped four spots to No. 7 after getting routed in Kansas City."Injuries are taking a heavy toll on an offense struggling to overcome injury issues at running back and left tackle Authentic Jared Goff Jersey ," The Sporting News' Alex Marvez said of the Jaguars.The Chicago Bears stayed at No. 8 during their bye week and will return to action against the reeling Miami Dolphins.The Minnesota Vikings jumped five spots to No. 9 after topping the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21 in a rematch of last season's NFC championship game.Baltimore dropped five spots to No. 10 after losing 12-9 in overtime to AFC North rival Cleveland.And in a Bay Area bummer, the Oakland Raiders, who are down four spots to No. 31, and the San Francisco 49ers, down one place to No. 32, round out the poll.
