Cooper Kupp Carted Off After Nasty-Looking Knee Injury [Update] Cooper Kupp Carted Off After Nasty-Looking Knee Injury [Update]

Cooper Kupp’s afternoon came to an early, violent end, when his left knee buckled under him as Darian Stewart brought him down with a horse collar tackle. Kupp immediately grabbed his leg in pain, and he had to be carted off the field. It initially looked like Kupp hurt his ankle, though the Rams later announced it…

Emmanuel Sanders's Finger-Wag Celebration Cost The Broncos Dearly

I’ll be the first to admit that the taunting penalty is one of the lamest things about the NFL. In a hyper-aggressive game like football, you’ve got to give players room to express emotions on the field, otherwise it gets held in and boils over. That being said, this taunt might have been a little extra.

Pete Carroll Gave Sean McVay A Second Chance To Make The Game-Winning Call Pete Carroll Gave Sean McVay A Second Chance To Make The Game-Winning Call

The Rams stayed undefeated and extended their lead in the NFC West with a close-run 33-31 road win over the Seahawks, and it all ultimately came down to a matter of inches and seconds. Facing fourth down and about the length of a football with 1:39 left, the Rams sent their punt unit out onto the field. Seattle coach…

This Hit On Brandin Cooks Was Somehow Not Flagged This Hit On Brandin Cooks Was Somehow Not Flagged

The NFL appears to have completely abandoned its newly-instated helmet rule that caused loads of controversy in the first couple weeks of the preseason. No penalties were called on Tedric Thompson after he nearly took Brandin Cooks head clean off of his body late in the second quarter of Rams-Seahawks.

It's The Perfect Storm For Offenses In The NFL It's The Perfect Storm For Offenses In The NFL

The NFL is in the midst of a genuine offensive revolution. It’s also the latest phase of an evolution, given that teams have been passing more frequently and attacking defenses with additional receivers since the early part of this decade. But this year, something’s up. Way up. Scoring is off the charts. Quarterbacks…

Aaron Donald Figured Out How To Get Around The Roughing The Passer Rule

The NFL revised the roughing the passer rule as a poorly thought out reaction to Aaron Rodgers’s broken collarbone last season, and so far it’s resulted in flags for a bunch of routine sacks and one season-ending injury for a defensive player. Aaron Donald, a neutron star who happens to play as a defensive lineman for…

Q&A: Eric Dickerson On The Hall Of Fame Firestorm And Hating Those "Fuckers" At The NFL Q&A: Eric Dickerson On The Hall Of Fame Firestorm And Hating Those "Fuckers" At The NFL

Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson has been making the rounds this week, ever since he spearheaded the drafting of a letter that demands better benefits for retired NFL players—at first, specifically Hall of Famers. The rollout of that letter and the fallout that has ensued has been messy, to say the least.

Sean McVay Is Doing The Spooky Brain Thing Again Sean McVay Is Doing The Spooky Brain Thing Again

They say that humans only use 10 percent of our brains. They go on to say that the claim that humans only use 10 percent of our brains—in addition to being a major plot point of the delightful Albert Brooks movie Defending Your Life—is a myth. Truly they cannot be trusted on this matter, but this much is clear: 98…

Marshawn Lynch Puts Both Teams On His Back For The First Touchdown Of The Gruden Era Marshawn Lynch Puts Both Teams On His Back For The First Touchdown Of The Gruden Era

The soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders are getting it done early in Oakland thanks to one of the strongest feats of human strength ever seen on a football field. Marshawn Lynch showed he still had some “Beast Mode” left in the tank when he dragged almost the entirety of the Rams’ defense, and a couple of his offensive lineme…

Aaron Donald Finally Gets His Money Aaron Donald Finally Gets His Money

After playing the first four years of his career on a shitty rookie contract, after two consecutive lengthy offseason holdouts, and after becoming the best defensive tackle in football, Aaron Donald has finally convinced the Rams to pay him.

Why Your Team Sucks 2018: Los Angeles Rams Why Your Team Sucks 2018: Los Angeles Rams

Some people are fans of the Los Angeles Rams. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Los Angeles Rams. This 2018 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.

Why Would Todd Gurley Need Preseason, Anyway? Why Would Todd Gurley Need Preseason, Anyway?

Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay decided, for various reasons, not to play all but one of his starters in his team’s first two preseason games. Most will sit out Saturday’s game against Houston, including quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley. Next week, per tradition, no starters will play in the final…

Aaron Donald Is Digging In Aaron Donald Is Digging In

The Los Angeles Rams’ aggressive offseason—timed to coincide with a quarterback on his rookie deal and with a crucial period to sell personal seat licenses—continued with the recent signings of wideout Brandin Cooks and running back Todd Gurley to lucrative contract extensions. Nonetheless, the Rams held their first…

The Steelers’ veteran players report for training camp today. Running back Le’Veon Bell will not be among them.

Sean McVay's Memory Is So Damn Scary  Sean McVay's Memory Is So Damn Scary 

NFL coaches are supposed to have a solid memory. It’s almost a prerequisite for the position. Rams head coach Sean McVay, the youngest head coach in the league, takes that quality to another level. During an interview with Bryant Gumbel of HBO’s Real Sports, the 32-year-old coach showed off his incredible memory:

St. Louis Jury Sticks Rams With $12.5 Million Bill For Reggie Bush's "Concrete Ring Of Death" Injury St. Louis Jury Sticks Rams With $12.5 Million Bill For Reggie Bush's "Concrete Ring Of Death" Injury

St. Louis’s Edward Jones Dome—now the Dome at America’s Center—was a piece of crap football stadium for many reasons, just one of which was a wide warning track of concrete that ran around the stands and presented a hazard for be-cleated football players whose actions and momentum occasionally carried them onto its…

Aaron Donald Looks Extremely Dense Aaron Donald Looks Extremely Dense

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is listed at 6-foot-1 and 280 pounds, which is a little short and light for his position. Still, he’s the NFL’s reigning defensive player of the year, and he’s absolutely built:

Why The Rams Are Going For It Right Now Why The Rams Are Going For It Right Now

The Los Angeles Rams have been rather aggressive this offseason. By signing Ndamukong Suh and making several trades—the latest being Tuesday’s big deal with the Patriots for wideout Brandin Cooks—the Rams have made significant upgrades to a roster that won 11 games and an NFC West title last season. They’re all in.

The Rams Get Richer, Trade For Brandin Cooks The Rams Get Richer, Trade For Brandin Cooks

The New England Patriots spent a first- and third-round pick to get Brandin Cooks from the Saints last offseason, and now they’ve dealt the receiver (along with a fourth-round pick) to the Rams in exchange for a first- and sixth-rounder. That was fast!

Reports: Broncos Trade Aqib Talib To Rams Reports: Broncos Trade Aqib Talib To Rams

The question of what the Broncos will do with Aqib Talib is finally settled—after weeks of speculation, Denver has reportedly traded the veteran cornerback to the Rams in exchange for a fifth-round pick, as first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and James Palmer.
