LA Rams 54 – Kansas City Chiefs 51

White rally towels flickered throughout the stadium reading “LA Together,” as the LA Rams dedicated Monday night’s game to first responders and those affected by the California wildfires and the mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks.

Members of the Cal Lutheran University choir sang the national anthem as first responders and their families carried an American flag that stretched the length of the field before the start of the Rams’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Players and coaches from both teams wore dark gray hats with logos of Los Angeles-area firefighter and law enforcement agencies.

From start to finish, this was a playoff caliber game. Billed as the “Game of the Year,” this matchup somehow managed to exceed expectations.

LA Rams fall to New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints 45 – LA Rams 35

It was inevitable. We said last week that the odds of going 16-0 were almost impossible. However, what a great game this was!

While New Orleans was dominant early, the Rams put on an amazing comeback in the second half, tying the game with 21 unanswered points.

While the final result wasn’t what Rams fans were hoping for, we can be reassured in knowing that no deficit is too big for this team to overcome. It’s just one game and the Rams still have the best record in football, sitting tied with the Chiefs at 8-1.

Rams stay undefeated, winning 29-27 over Packers

Rams 29 – Packers 27

I really had a hard time predicting this game! While I love the Packers, (some of you might know, I write for both the Green Bay Packers and the Los Angeles Rams) they have been inconsistent all season and not playing as well as we know they can. At the same time, the Rams are (so far) unbeatable and playing more as a consistent, total team week after week.

That’s not how the game Sunday began, however. The Packers defense was firing on all cylinders and playing better than they had in weeks, while the Rams were having a very slow, uncharacteristic start. By game end, Green Bay would fall to 3-3-1, and the Rams would keep their unblemished record.

Seattle Seahawks, life after the LOB

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Seattle Seahawks played the current divisional leader, the Los Angeles Rams, at home on Sunday. Although the game ended in a close loss for Seattle, the fans got a glimpse of what life after the LOB would look like, and it wasn’t all bad.

Hey, remember when teams used to be able to play defense? Yeah, me too. Good times. Well, the Seattle Seahawks had one of the best of all times. The Legion of Boom will go down in history for their stealth-like quality that destroyed offenses, including the highest scoring offense of all time, the Peyton Manning led 2013 Denver Broncos.

Oakland Raiders vs LA Rams: What To Watch

Official Reporter, LA Rams

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan//@lucyRK78

The Los Angeles Rams’ preseason opener was a game we’d all like to forget. This couldn’t be truer for quarterback Sean Mannion. This is a major concern for the Rams (and all of us Rams fans!)

It’s hard to find anything positive about Mannion’s game. He only had a single interception, completed just 3 of 13 passes for 16 yards AND fumbled when linebacker Terrell Suggs stripped the ball from him.

Prior to this first preseason game, Mannion was pretty much a lock at the backup quarterback spot, but has that changed? If head coach Sean McVay isn’t set on Mannion, who would be the next option? QB Colin Kaepernick’s name has been thrown around, and we all know I’m the first in line to sign him, but that doesn’t look like an option, currently. My next pick would be Josh McCown if he doesn’t get the starting job in New York. Robert Griffin III is also a name that keeps coming up, but I’m going to hope this doesn’t happen.

Analyzing the LA Rams 2018 NFL Draft

Official Reporter, LA Rams

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan // @LUCYrk78

The most excitement recently surrounding the LA Rams began even before the 2018 NFL Draft began! To begin with, the Rams already had a pretty solid roster. They then added wide receiver Brandin Cooks, defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, cornerback Aqib Talib, and CB Marcus Peters.

I’ll admit, I’ve been a Suh fan for going on more than 10 years now, having worked with him and his agent closely at a previous job, although I recognize how polarizing he is. I was ecstatic when the Rams picked him up.

The draft may have started slowly for LA Rams fans, with no picks on the first day, but it quickly picked up momentum. On the second and third days of the draft, general manager Les Snead brought in 11 players.

Seahawks Week 15 Recap

 

 

By Shannon Sanchez//@ShannonSanchez3

Rams 42 – Seahawks 7

With the Seattle Seahawks bogged down in injuries, fans were concerned about today’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.

As of halftime today, 12’s have to come to the conclusion that there is no more home-field advantage when the majority of the Seahawks All-Pro players are on injured reserve or out of the game.  After the disastrous ending of last week’s game, the concern centered on the defense.

With both linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright leaving the game with injuries, the conversation was whether either one or both would be able to play.   Earlier in the week, there was the threat of suspensions on defensive ends Michael Bennett, Sheldon Richardson and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson.  Although Seattle lost Wright for the game having not cleared concussion protocol, everyone else was available for the game. On the offensive side, everyone was relatively healthy.

It’s Not Over For Philadelphia

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera //@rxnlzbth

Eagles  43 –  Rams 35

It’s frustrating that so many NFL fans and analysts have completely written off the Philadelphia Eagles as a Super Bowl contender.  If I were quarterback Nick Foles, I would find it offensive that no one has faith in my abilities to lead this team and would use that as leverage for the remainder of the season.

I realize that probably wasn’t the best way to start this article.  These last few days have been eating at me.  I needed time to be able to lay out my thoughts in an appropriate manner, while thoroughly expressing my frustrations about what I’m bothered by so it won’t be misunderstood.

The Black Hole

By Teverly Lazenby // @TeverlyL

 

It had never been my life endeavor to become a sports writer.  I just kind of fell into it.  Several years ago I was approached by Liz Panucci, the founder of a site called NFLFemale.com.  She asked, ‘Do you want to write about your Raiders?’. The next thing I knew I was the Official Fan Reporter for the Oakland Raiders at NFLFemale.

My love of football began when I was a child.  My father coached football at a local high school.  Since I was a “Daddy’s’ Girl” I was either with him while he was coaching, or with him and his friends watching USC football or The L.A. Rams.
