In the previous matchup in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams struggled to generate big plays.

Quarterback Jared Goff averaged just 5.4 yards per completion in his team’s 20-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last week. The longest play from scrimmage for Los Angeles was 26 yards.

But last week, Goff connected with Cooper Kupp and Cam Akers for 44-yard plays each. And that helped them get into position for scores.

Akers also had a 20-yard run, and Goff connected with Robert Woods for a 20-yard pass across the middle of the field. So, the Rams did a better job of creating explosive plays.

The Rams ran more “12” personnel in the third matchup with Seattle, and 36 snaps overall with at least two tight ends on the field.
