Eagles at Rams: Thursday injury report

A few names popped up on the Rams’ report...but fret not

The Los Angeles Rams (11-2) had a clean initial injury report on Wednesday. No names to be found.

A few names popped up on the Thursday report, however. But no need to be alarmed — as none of them are injury related. Specifically for Rams’ center John Sullivan and left tackle Andrew Whitworth, this is standard protocol. Sean McVay has given his veterans plenty of rest throughout the week this season.

At any rate, here’s the...

What the Rams learned on Sunday could apply to their playoff run

What the Rams look like come playoff time might well depend on what they learned from Sunday Night’s horror show.

What we learned.

More like what we need to find out…

The Los Angeles Rams were slapped on national television on Sunday night by the Chicago Bears. They have now dropped road games against the other top NFC contenders; one loss because of their defense in New Orleans, the other due to a flaccid offensive performance in Chicago.

Eagles-Rams Wednesday injury report

The Rams are looking healthy mid-week

The Los Angeles Rams (11-2) play host to the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) on Sunday night in Week 15. The Rams have already locked up the division and are hoping to stay atop the NFC and earn a first round postseason bye. The Eagles currently sit in second place in the NFC East and are looking to stay afloat in the race for a wildcard spot.

The Rams held a walk-thru on Wednesday, and their injury report on humpday was...well, it was blank.

Rams defense averages out; best to come?

Things are starting to even out defensively, as the Rams are a downright average defense even with their struggling run defense.

Upon conclusion of week 11 in the NFL season, I wrote about how the Los Angeles Rams’ defense wasn’t good, but wasn’t bad either. Matter of fact, it was explicitly written to try and justify the defense as a downright average defense in 2018.

Some of the numbers didn’t shake out accordingly, but that had more to do with the tough stretch the Rams just came...

REPORT: Wentz “not expected” to play in Week 15

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Eagles are concerned that Wentz won’t play on Sunday.

The Los Angeles Rams last year played against the Philadelphia Eagles in which QB Carson Wentz tore his ACL. Today, sources have told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport that the Eagles are concerned about Carson Wentz’s availability due to a back injury.

Is Goff a finished product?

Premature whispers that the Rams’ franchise QB is essentially a finished product that can no longer blame a bad game on growing pains are getting louder.

Observers so far have been extremely uncomfortable going all-in on Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff. So after his worst game in a long while as a Ram, Goff fed the developing narrative that he can’t play in the cold. And before that, it was that he can’t play well under bad coaching.

Not sure what’s more damning, but does it really...

You could probably flip the Rams and Chiefs and not matter too much. Sure, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff are young, but what they’ve done this season is enough to convince me. Goff did it against the Chiefs in one of the best games of the season so far. There’s some recency bias given what Mahomes did on Sunday against the Ravens, but that was pretty damn impressive. I do worry...

Rams-Bears: Five Bears to watch revisited

The Rams had a chance to clinch a playoff bye, instead they got punched in mouth and opened up some questions.

The Los Angeles Rams traveled to take on the Chicago Bears for Sunday Night Football. A defensive battle, the lone touchdown went to an offensive lineman. The Rams fell 15-6, victim of the vaunted Bears defense that prevented the Rams from scoring a touchdown. Typically, offensive players steal the show for headlines and previews but there was a reason why my preview of the Bears...
