5Qs and 5As with Arrowhead Pride: How much do the Chiefs miss Tyreek Hill?

5Qs and 5As with Arrowhead Pride: How much do the Chiefs miss Tyreek Hill?

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports “I decided that it doesn’t matter who the Chiefs roll out at receiver, they will always be productive.” The Los Angeles Rams have lost four consecutive games and things won’t get any easier this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Not only will LA be without Matthew Stafford but they’ll be starting a quarterback making his first NFL start. You got this Bryce! Perkins will need to be on his A game Sunday if the Rams have any hope in beating a Super Bowl contender on the road. For some reason, I don’t expect this matchup to...

Random Ramsdom: Raheem Morris calls Patrick Mahomes an “alien”

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 11/26/22 Can Rams Defense Slow Down ‘Alien’ Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes? (fannation/si) “The Chiefs (8-2) are playing at a high level with one of the best records in the NFL. The MVP-caliber play of quarterback Patrick Mahomes has boosted the former Super Bowl champions. One of the top offenses in the league presents challenges for a Rams defense that has struggled in their past two games. “You could tell they’ve been together for a while,” Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris said, “the...

Rams could shock the world by taking down Chiefs

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Kansas City is a better team in almost every facet. Can LA put up a fight with their backs against the wall? The Los Angeles Rams have almost nothing to lose when they face the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. On the flip side, they stand to gain important momentum heading into the 2023 season if they can remain competitive and find building blocks for the next contending roster. Patrick Mahomes and his arsenal of unique offensive weapons will stress the Rams defense in almost every way. Can Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey put in...

5 questions the Rams need answered before the end of the season

5 questions the Rams need answered before the end of the season

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports 5 questions that the Rams need to answer over the season’s final seven games Sitting at 3-7 heading into Week 12, the Rams have a lot more questions than answers at this point. This is looking like a lost season with just a one percent chance to make the playoffs. With that being said, that doesn’t mean that the Rams still can’t learn something in the back half of the season. If anything, they have a two-month head start on their offseason and can learn a lot about what their needs will be with seven games still to play. Here are...

Random Ramsdom: If Wolford is healthy, will Perkins still start?

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 11/25/22 Rams’ John Wolford: Listed as full on practice estimate (CBSSports) “Wolford (neck) was listed as a full participant on Thursday’s estimate practice report, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Von Miller signing with Bills was Rams’ first sign of trouble in 2022

Von Miller signing with Bills was Rams’ first sign of trouble in 2022

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports LA tried to “run it back” without one of their bona fide stars Von Miller played an instrumental role in getting a competitive Los Angeles Rams team over the hump toward winning Super Bowl LVI. Miller’s play on the field took LA’s pass rush to a fearsome level. If you paid too much attention to star Aaron Donald, Miller would wreck shop and vice versa. Leonard Floyd, Greg Gaines, and A’Shawn Robinson were also dangerous as complementary pieces. The veteran also played a crucial role as a leader in the locker room, and he helped...
