Jalen Ramsey and Troy Reeder to the rescue

Jalen Ramsey has been playing in the slot for most of his time due to which he has failed to match up with the No. 1 receivers on the outside. However, he still has been an outstanding coverage even when inside the slot.

His Thursday night display against the Seahawks could be a Gospel for a defensive player. A save like that could only come from an excellent player like him. He had perfect coverage on Tyler Lockett as he broke up a pass by Wilson by tipping it high in the air.

Later Troy Reeder took to Twitter to express the exhilarated feeling after the interception. Reeder wrote, Great team win! More work to be done! Shout out @jalenramsey with the assist” 

To which Ramsey replied with a cool-looking basketball dunk gif that resembled their interception and wrote, Just a lil oop. Way to finish w/ the pick @troyreeder9 This how I felt,” followed by a laughing emoji.

Rams are a strong team as a whole

The Rams’ defense had a great game last night as they held the Seahawks to just 17 points. While the offense made a tremendous comeback, even after Matthew Stafford popped out the index finger out of his throwing hand. Stafford showed off his durability after he placed his finger back in place and resumed playing.

The teamwork showcased by the Rams Thursday night resulted in a well-deserved 17-26 win against the Wilson-led Seahawks. And with a notable 4-1 winning haul after the first five weeks of the season, the Rams look stronger than ever, be it their agile defensive side or their durable offensive side.
