Los Angeles Rams at Denver Broncos: Matchups to watch
The matchup between the Los Angeles Rams versus the Denver Broncos is a tale of two ends of the spectrum.On one end is the Rams who are 5-0 and sit comfortably at the top of the NFC West rankings. On the other end is the Broncos who are 2-3 Youth Tyler Higbee Jersey , sit third in the AFC West, and are looking to rebound and regroup after a rough game vs the New York Jets.Let’s take a look at some of the matchups to watch:CB Nickell Robey-Coleman vs WR Emmanuel SandersThis is going to be a battle of two heavy weights. When the Broncos get into three WR sets, Sanders typically kicks into the slot where NRC lines up. Sanders is a route running extraordinaire who also has a great set of hands and underrated speed. He’s the top dog the Rams will have to pay extra attention to in the passing game. Luckily for the Rams, NRC has likely been the Rams’ best CB so far making this battle a fun one.WR Robert Woods vs CB Chris Harris JrAlthough the news sounds positive for WR’s Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp, we aren’t sure at this point if they’ll be able to suit up. If they can’t, look for Jared Goff to target Woods a bunch. After both Cooks and Kupp were knocked out in week five, Woods came alive ripping off massive chunk plays for the offense. Woods finished the game with 140+ yards from scrimmage. This week he’ll likely draw Chris Harris Jr Youth Samson Ebukam Jersey , the Broncos’ best cornerback.Rams’ run defense vs RB’s Phillip Lindsay and Royce FreemanThe Broncos have one of the best backfields in the NFL headlined by two rookies in Lindsay and Freeman. Combined, they nearly have 600 rushing yards and both are averaging over 5 yards per carry. The two runners contrast each other well with Lindsay being an electric and quick one-cut runner with awesome receiving ability (and running) and Freeman being more of a powerful hard to-get-down runner. The Rams’ front-seven is coming off a game where they were just abused versus the run, but I actually expect them to have a bounce back game and limit the Broncos’ rushing attack.OLB Samson Ebukam vs Billy TurnerIs this the week the Rams’ edge rushers finally start to make a larger impact? It could (maybe should?) be. Starting RT Jared Veldheer sounds like he’ll miss a second consecutive game and LT Garrett Bolles is banged up. Ebukam and Matt Longacre will get to go against an experienced backup in Billy Turner who has 29 games of NFL experience. Look for Ebukam to improve his sack total (one) this week.OT’s Andrew Whitworth/Rob Havenstein vs DE’s Von Miller/Bradley ChubbThis matchup will be one of the most interesting from the entire game. The rookie (Chubb) only has 1.5 sacks on the season, though the same cannot be said for Von Miller. Miller currently has four sacks, two of which are forced fumbles. Miller looks better than ever and will likely be a handful for the Rams’ bookend tackles in Whitworth and Havenstein. I do think the Rams have the edge here because the offensive line has been downright brilliant, but the Broncos’ edge duo could get themselves a few wins too.ILB Cory Littleton vs P Colby WadmanCory Littleton has multiple blocked punts this season. He’s established himself as one of the great special teams players in the league today, maybe even ever. As for Wadman Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey , he’s only had eight punts in the league (all of which came the past game). Marquette King was recently released, so look for Littleton to chase Wadman like a cheetah hunts it’s prey.Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders live gamethread The other day, I began to write a 2018 Los Angeles Rams season preview that morphed into about 5,000 words about the Vietnam War and the Iraq War and it was nonsense. But it got at the idea that there is a narrow band of success that defines modern efforts because of analysis oversaturation and the impossibility of defining the limits of what can be considered success in the modern era. And that that’s part of what makes sports so satisfying is its singular marker of success.A championship.Now yes, there is a tribe of teams that, in all sincerity, is not operating toward a championship. Well White Robert Woods Jersey , that’s slightly misleading. They’re not operating toward a championship now. This season. But they are operating toward one...eventually. At some point. Maybe next year. And that means you have to work now to lay the foundation for that possible success later because the success isn’t coming now.But for many and in the case of the NFL perhaps most teams, the chances of winning a championship now, this season, are legitimate enough to entertain before the season begins. Before losses and injuries and mistakes turn those chances into memories. Many/most in this sport begin September believing.And because that belief is so legitimate, it becomes the fuel that keeps the flame burning throughout the calendar year.Turf Show Times started in 2006 amid the first season that I could feel the flame flickering out. The belief was dying.And for good reason.The 2007 Rams began a five-year run of what would become the worst five-year run in NFL history. Not a bad run. The worst.And I, like many other Rams fans, instead of being able to enjoy the belief that our team could actually win Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , could actually inherit the singular marker of success the sport provides meant we were forced to seek out other pockets of satisfaction. Other markers. Silver linings. Semi-victories.The flame was dead.Sean McVay took the job of the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams on January 12, 2017. He became the youngest head coach in the history of the NFL’s modern era. And he was nearly as immediately misunderstood as he was eventually successful because he is a millennial operating in an NFL power structure and traditional media environment largely run by Gen Xers and baby boomers.And it doesn’t matter.Sean McVay was named Head Coach of the Year in 2017. He was immediately sought out for counsel and input. His style is going to be mimicked. His to-the-end-of-the-clock communication with QB Jared Goff was widely derided and ridiculed by many last year. It’s going to replicated by many others.And it doesn’t matter.All that matters is the pursuit.And McBae has the Rams on the hunt.This year is going to be long. And tiring.There are going to be new fans. There are going to be trolls. That’s part of what comes with wins.It’s worth it.The Rams are back in the fold with the rest of the league’s franchises who provide their fan bases hope. Real hope. Sincere hope. Not a hope based on regurgitated talking points from the team and its employees. Not a hope based on the formulaic offseason hype from acolytes in the media.They’re back. And they’re giving real hope.There’s a singular marker ahead.And now the flame is back.Burn, motherfucker. Burn.

I can show you all the sports, strength, and even passion. Welcome, I sincerely serve you, everything is for you. You can call me "Lin" and welcome to our sports kingdom—— We will be happy to serve you.
