Give Me 5: Brandin Cooks top plays of the season's second half 

As the Rams enter the offseason, it's time to check out some of the team's top plays from the second half of the NFL season and postseason.

Here are the top five plays from wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

No. 5

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks scored his first of two touchdowns against the 49ers in Week 17 during the first quarter, reeling in a bullet from quarterback Jared Goff after getting wide open in the end zone on the play-action fake.

The three-yard touchdown reception was one of five catches for Cooks in the regular-season finale. He finished with 62 yards receiving.

No. 4

Cooks did his part in mounting a comeback against his former team in the NFC Championship game, totaling seven receptions for 107 yards in the Superdome.

The wideout was on the receiving end of a short Goff pass and took it 25 yards in the third quarter as part of an 11-play scoring drive to put the Rams within three of the Saints as the game grew late. Cooks caught the pass and tore up the sideline before getting out of bounds for the offense's biggest pickup of the drive.

No. 3

Cooks helped set the tone in what became one of the great offensive battles of the season on Monday Night Football's Week 11 thriller against the Chiefs. The speedy wideout caught his second target of the night for 30 yards across the heart of the Kansas City defense for a first down and more en route to the game's first of 14 total touchdowns.

No. 2

Cooks scored his fifth touchdown of the season in an impressive individual effort just before the half in Week 17's game against the 49ers.

Niners defenders did their best to keep No. 12 out of the end zone for a second time as he juked and spun from their grasp and into the paint to put the Rams up 27-3 against the up-state opponent.

Cooks finished 2018 with at least 1,000 yards receiving and five TDs for the fourth-straight season.

No. 1

Time ticked away as the Los Angeles offense marched down the field, down 13-3 and in search of points before halftime of the NFC Championship game in New Orleans.

Goff found Cooks for back-to-back receptions in the seven-play drive lasting 1:29 — the second of which was the receiver's longest play of the day. Goff dropped a perfect pass over the shoulder of Cooks down the left sideline, setting up running back Todd Gurley's six-yard rushing touchdown just before the break.
