RBTP74: (LA @ SEA) Survive & Advance to Green Bay!
Episode 74 details (Wildcard win over the Seattle Seahawks, Rams advance to play the Packers in Green Bay)
Sean McVay extends his record when leading at halftime to 37-0 and his playoff record to 4-2, while also handing Pete Carroll his first playoff loss at home - and he did it with a quarterback who had surgery on his thumb two weeks ago
Remembering the history of "Let Russ Cook" and "Mr. Unlimited", and why the Rams' defense (led by Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey & Leonard Floyd) was Russell Wilson's kryptonite this season
The Rams' defense had 12 defenders grade a 68 or better, according to PFF.com, and Jalen Ramsey wasn't even one of those players. Why Brandon Staley's defensive scheme and game plan has benefitted not only the "stars" (Donald, Ramsey) but has developed players like Reeder, Fox, Joseph-Day, Nick Scott and Greg Gaines into productive players.
Rams offense, led by Cam Akers, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Cam Akers ran for 131 yards, added another 45 receiving yards and really carried the offense. Akers was productive because of the offensive line, and McVay's usage of 12 & 13 personnel. Cooper Kupp & Robert Woods were targeted a total of 17 times, Kupp caught a 44-yard pass over Jamal Adams, and Woods scored in the 4th
Escaping, but barely: Donald, Wolford, Kupp, Edwards all listed as day-to-day
Questions we'll answer on Thursday:
Who will be under center on Saturday for the Rams?
Can the Rams reproduce this game and avoid turning the ball over in 25 degree weather, at Lambeau Field, with fans in the stands?
How will Aaron Rodgers fare without his LT?
How will Jalen Ramsey handle Davonte Adams, who leads the league in YAC?
