Team teases that players will wear yellow pants

Prior to the season, the LA Rams promised they would have several new uniform combinations as they begin the new SoFi Stadium era and they aren’t afraid of changing looks.

The Rams’ special media department likes to have fun with fans and Tuesday, it produced another gem of a tweet to promote their new fashion look Sunday when the Giants visit SoFi Stadium. Here it is:

Rams defensive advanced stats: Taylor Rapp’s unfortunate day and updates on Micah Kiser, Troy Hill

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the defense after Sunday

Rams linebacker Micah Kiser has had all kinds of attention already this season. All kinds. Good kinds. Bad kinds.

As the most important player in the middle of the field for Brandon Staley’s defense, it is worth tracking how Kiser progresses throughout the season. In Week 1, he reportedly had seven missed tackles. In Week 2, he won defensive player of the week for the whole conference. What happened in Week 3?

Kiser was...

How are these former Rams performing in the early goings of 2020?

Plus a few other recently former Rams

The LA Rams may have had the biggest exodus of current and former talent this offseason by releasing a star player, trading a star player and seeing several more star players leave via free agency because Les Snead doesn’t have anymore money.

(Until Jalen Ramsey, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods needed it.)

There were some questions about those decisions as well as who would be replacing them. Here’s how those...

These guys showed out in Week 3.

Despite an end result that isn’t ever what you want to come away with on a Sunday, the Rams had plenty of excellent performances from its’ best players, which can help ease the pain. I mean, it’s better than a loss that included your stars getting waxed from start to finish, but I guess that’s just splitting hairs when they weren’t the winning squad.

Regardless, let’s focus on the positives. Here are my...

It will be a much different situation than what Sean McVay faced on the road last week

The LA Rams host the New York Giants in Week 4, a team that could give Sean McVay a lot of problems. That is, if the Rams lose at home to the Giants, that would stir up issues for the organization, even if it is ever so brief as two days of answering the “What happened?” question.

Since going 11-5 under first time head coach Ben McAdoo in 2016, the Giants have...

Also good news for the Rams tackles

Todd Gurley probably had his best game of the season on Sunday and yet the results of the week and the year may only emphasize why the LA Rams had to made the difficult decision to release him in March. The most obvious and pertinent reason to the Rams though was not what Gurley’s been able to do or not do, but the 32 carries for 195 yards and two touchdowns that replacement Darrell Henderson has put up over...

Random Ramsdom: Rams remain a top-10 team in Week 4

Your source for Rams and NFL news from around the web.

After a gut-wrenching loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Rams still remain one of the top teams in the NFL with a 2-1 record.

In ESPN’s latest edition of their weekly power rankings, the Rams dropped a single spot, going from #7 to #8. Lindsey Thiry, ESPN’s beat reporter for the team, had this to say about the Rams following Week 3.

There was plenty of uncertainty about how the Rams’ offense,...

Aaron Donald nearly willed the Rams to a 25-point comeback win all by himself

Donald’s sack of Josh Allen could be one of the most valuable of the season

Personally I don’t want to spend much time trying to understand comebacks or giving credit to intangibles like “resiliency.” As far as I’m concerned there are times when teams go down by 25 points because they’re unambiguously bad and often they lose by a score not too distant from that, but then other times good teams go down by 25 because the order of points...

MNF open thread: Chiefs at Ravens

Lamar Jackson | Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

A great ending to September NFL play

The last NFL game in September this season is a huge one as the Kansas City Chiefs play the Baltimore Ravens. These two teams may meet again in January.

Rams won’t be derailed by Buffalo loss, are still in strong position heading into October

Rams have two winnable games up next, against the New York Giants and Washington

Last week, we wrote that the LA Rams would be in good shape after the September portion of the schedule whether they won or lost in Buffalo.

And that remains the case no matter how badly the 35-32 defeat to the Bills stings. Sure, the Rams could easily be 3-0 — but they are 2-1 after hosting the Dallas Cowboys and taking long back-to-back road trips...

LA has two of the best receivers in the game again

As I wrote earlier on Monday, NFL passing offenses are having unprecedented success this season and in recent years thanks to countless variables. Among those reasons for optimal movement through the air would be exceptional talent from those who are completing the receptions on the other end. In the case of the Los Angeles Rams and quarterback Jared Goff, the top two options there are...

It’s time to re-evaluate completion percentage

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With stats rising to unseen levels, it’s time to find a new baseline of what’s average and what’s great

For as long as NFL stats go back, 77 teams have completed at least 70-percent of their passes (minimum of 45 attempts) over the first three games of a season. This would account for approximately one such team per season dating back to the oldest such example I can find, the 1953 Cleveland Browns.

That team completed 56 of 79 passes (70.9-percent) with...

Random Ramsdom: Has Henderson shown enough to be RB1?

With rookie Cam Akers out and veteran Malcolm Brown nursing a recently broken pinky, the Rams upped Darrell Henderson’s workload against the Bills to a whole new level by giving him 20 carries, which he turned into 114 yards and a score while adding a lone reception for six more yards.

In his last two games, Henderson has totaled 32 carries for 195 yards and now currently leads the team with...

After two encouraging performances, questions about the LA defense will emerge from this loss

The Rams have the best player in the NFL ... and then what happens?

While Aaron Donald had his most dominant statistical performance of the season — though he wouldn’t be “Aaron Donald” if he wasn’t the best player on the field during most of the snaps he takes regardless of whether he gets two sacks or not — the Rams had their worst defensive...

Rams DB says controversial pass interference was ‘wrong call’

Los Angeles Rams safety John Johnson III thinks the controversial pass interference at the end of the team’s loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday was the “wrong call.” The Rams were leading 32-28 in Buffalo after making a huge comeback.

Darrell Henderson shines in Cam Akers’ absence despite Rams falling to the Bills

Rams’ running back had a big game in Buffalo, coming through with 114 yards on 20 carries

The LA Rams continued to show that their offense is closer to the 2018 version than the 2019 version in a thrilling 35-32 loss at Buffalo against the Bills on Sunday.

Once again, the Rams’ running attack was on point as Darrell Henderson continued to deliver. With starter Cam Akers out with a ribs injury, Henderson came through with 114 yards on 20...

Greg Zuerlein continues to miss kicks against Seattle, regardless of who he plays for

LA chose to let Zuerlein leave in free agency this offseason and on Sunday he’s making that look wise

The Los Angeles Rams employed Greg Zuerlein as their kicker from 2012 to 2019 but chose not to retain him in free agency this year for a number of reasons, including salary cap space and Zuerlein’s potential decline. Despite only being 32 last season, Zuerlein missed one kick inside 40 and went only 5-of-11 in the 40-49 range.

He did go 42-of-42...

Not a bad showdown

The New Orleans Saints haven’t been as explosive as anticipated and don’t have Michael Thomas right now but they’ve still scored 58 points. The Green Bay Packers have been more explosive than expected and scored 85 points through two games, most in the NFL.

Rams say costly 4th-down PI penalty 'wrong call'
