 LEAGUE’S BEST O-LINE

The Rams offensive line remains the league’s best according to Pro Football Focus. PFF’s most recent offensive power rankings have LT Andrew Whitworth and his group ranked No. 1 through five weeks.

Here’s what PFF’s Michael Renner said about L.A.’s offensive line, and each player’s grade:

“Andrew Whitworth, who turns 37 years old in December, continues to be the class of the tackle position in the NFL. Whitworth was drafted five picks after former Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeil, didn’t make a Pro Bowl until McNeil was already retired in 2012, and in his 13th NFL season is currently the second highest-graded tackle in the NFL.”

Left Tackle: Andrew Whitworth, 87.6

Left Guard: Rodger Saffold, 77.5

Center: John Sullivan, 63.6

Right Guard: Austin Blythe, 78.6

Right Tackle: Rob Havenstein, 84.2

Quarterback Jared Goff has been sacked only six times this season.

TIGHT END PRODUCTION

On Wednesday, Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton highlighted each NFL team’s biggest disappointment so far in 2018. For the Rams, Moton points out the Rams’ lack of production at tight end.

Here’s what Moton had to say about L.A.’s tight ends:

Two tight ends with pass-catching potential have been lost in the Los Angeles Rams' highly productive offense.

Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett barely see any action as pass-catchers. The former logged 563 receiving yards and eight touchdowns as a senior at Western Kentucky; the latter recorded 717 yards and four scores in his final collegiate season at South Alabama.

In 2018, Higbee and Everett have a combined 17 targets, 11 catches, 121 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, the Rams' top-three wide receivers all have 33-plus targets and 400-plus receiving yards.

As a 5-0 team, it's best to win with the methods in place, but eventually, head coach Sean McVay will have to figure out how to involve his big-body pass-catchers when defenses have the personnel to match up with the wideouts on the perimeter.
