2019 LA Rams 5 man pass rush ranks fourth in NFL

The LA Rams were one of the most “results-oriented” pass-sacking defenses in the NFL in 2019.

There’s absolutely no reason the Vikings should give Dalvin Cook the contract he wants

Another top running back is coming up on the end of his rookie deal and he is reportedly asking for a lot of money, so I guess we’re doing this again. This time around, we have Dalvin Cook taking center stage in the latest episode of NFL Twitter’s favorite show: Does This Running Back Matter? Admittedly, […]
