Los Angeles Rams: Staff predictions vs. Carolina Panthers

Los Angeles Rams: Staff predictions vs. Carolina Panthers”

The Rams went with a shared backfield, but the split between Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown wasn't almost as close as many thought it was. They had a good season, a good playoff run, then disappeared in the biggest game of their season.

Tight end Tyler Higbee has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams.

It took the Carolina Panthers more than two quarters to score their first touchdown of the season Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, but when they finally crossed the goal line, they did it in style.

Gurley's carries were truncated late in the Rams' NFC championship season due to knee soreness, causing some question about his durability heading into 2019. Even with Newton missing the final few games, Carolina finished 2018 ranked eighth in yards per play. Malcolm Brown had more carries and more yards than Gurley until the fourth quarter, and also stole two early touchdowns from Gurley. Neither Gurley nor the Rams have ever confirmed that report. Todd Gurley will not be limited by a snap count, making the Rams even more lethal on offense.

"A little bit but I wasn't banking on anything", Brown said when asked if he was surprised by his increased workload. ". I'm excited to see Todd Gurley continue to do his thing". Luke Kuechly is still in the conversation as the NFL's best linebacker.

Weddle, 34, is in his first season with the Rams after spending the previous three with the Ravens. After one of the few designed rushes for Newton went nowhere and Christian McCaffrey managed only four yards on a pass over the middle, the Panthers had a key third down.

"Cam is a readable guy", said Rams linebacker Cory Littleton, who finished with an impressive 14 tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery.

Until then, the best thing Rams fans can do is be happy with the way things played out on Sunday, and hope there aren't any setbacks over the next couple of weeks, because Gurley still has a long way to go from a proving perspective.

That gave Newton and McCaffrey another chance, and the Panthers pulled to within 30-27 with 1:58 left on Alex Armah's dive for a touchdown.

So following the Rams' 30-27 win against the Panthers on Sunday, in which Gurley rushed for a team-high 97 yards on 14 carries, you'd figure this could be a moment of relief from all of that for the back. "But with him if you can push him off his spot, that's when it is harder for him".
