Andrew Whitworth Color Rush Jersey from linchao's blog

The Seahawks played without running back Chris Carson against the Rams on Sunday Troy Hill Color Rush Jersey , which meant that first-round pick Rashaad Penny got an extended opportunity in the backfield.For the first time in the NFL, Penny made the most of his chance. After running 42 times for 146 yards in his first eight games, Penny ran 12 times for 108 yards and his first NFL touchdown in the 36-31 loss and earned a pat on the back from head coach Pete Carroll after the game.“Today he busted out,” Carroll said, via the Seattle Times. “We’ve been challenging him to get right and to work at the right tempo and find what it鈥檚 like to be a pro, just teaching a young guy trying to figure it out … I thought today he needed it so badly. He knows he’s a great player. He just hasn’t been able to demonstrate it.”Carson’s return from his hip injury will change things for Penny in the future, but Sunday’s game still might buy the rookie a few more chances than he had in the first half of the season. The Los Angeles Rams head home after a tough divisional battle versus their rivals in the Seattle Seahawks.Closing the game out on a quarterback sneak Robert Woods Jersey , the Rams remain unbeaten at 5-0 and continued to widen their division lead.Stock DownCB Marcus PetersPeters was absolutely horrible in this game, there’s no two-ways about it. Peters was toasted multiple times for touchdowns as he proved his eyes continue to be the aspect of his game with which you have to live and die with. One can argue that he might have been hurt or not 100% fit to play, but the issues last night did not revolve around his feet - they revolved around his eyes. For a team who invested a ton into the secondary, they need to do a MUCH better job moving forward (not just Peters).Pass rushThe Rams’ pass rush had two sacks in the game (Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh) but were invisible for majority of the game. Russell Wilson was given all the time in the world which is surprising because the Seahawks are not known to have a good offensive line. The edge rushers in Samson Ebukam, Matt Longacre, and John Franklin-Myers need to find a way to be much more productive. Not only that, but more is needed from maybe the leagues best interior trio too.Run defenseThe Seahawks had 190 rushing yards with three players (Chris Carson Andrew Whitworth Color Rush Jersey , Mike Davis, Tyler Lockett) all averaging over 5.6 yards per carry. Not good. Now, Carson is a tough runner with an awesome combination of speed and power, but the Rams simply need to do better. They need to be more aggressive and physical at the point of attack up front, and the linebackers need to wrap up better.Stock UpWR Cooper KuppPrior to getting knocked out of the game by way of a concussion, Cooper Kupp simply looked unstoppable. In the first half he managed to register six receptions for 90 yards and one touchdown. Every week a different wide receiver is capable of stepping up and shouldering the work load, and this week was Kupp’s. The dependability that QB Jared Goff and Kupp have developed within each other is quite evident.K Cairo SantosSome may not think Santos belongs here https://www.ramsfanstore.com/John-Johnson-Jersey , but I think he does. His missed extra point was awful and put the Rams in a really bad position for sure, but his ability to bounce back from that awful miss and kick the field goal that eventually won the game was impressive. Santos looked comfortable in general (outside of kickoff duties).WR Robert WoodsWoods was tremendous again yesterday with five receptions on seven targets for 92 yards. Woods’ route running ability was putting the Seahawks’ defensive backs in a daze, and he racked up a ton of yards-after-catch as Goff delivered some accurate balls that allowed Woods to never break stride. Rob was huge in continuing the offensive production in the second half when his running mates were knocked out by injuries.ILB Mark BarronIn his return, Barron looked awesome. There were a few instances where his physicality and speed were evident. Barron ensures that ball carriers near/around him are going to feel his impact. Having the speed and coverage ability that Barron does allows the Rams to use Cory Littleton in a manner closer to what Alec Ogletree did for the defense last year.WR’s Josh Reynolds and KhaDarel HodgeGood on these young guys for stepping in and ensuring the offense didn’t come to a halt after two awful injuries. Reynolds made his impact right away with two receptions for 39 yards and a 10-yard end around. Meanwhile, the practice squad call up from a few weeks prior in Hodge also got on the board with a reception for 14 yards (was a great catch) and showed his ability to block.The Rams remain unbeaten at 5-0 and look to continue the streak with a struggling Denver Broncos team in week six.
