Give Me 5: Cory Littleton's top plays of the season

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

Here are the top five plays from linebacker Cory Littleton.

No. 5

Littleton made his presence felt in a number of ways in his first season as the Rams' defensive signal caller and Week 7 in San Francisco was no different. The Rams leading tackler in 2018 picked up his first and second sacks of the season against quarterback C.J. Beathard in the midseason meeting — the first of which pushed Beathard 11 yards into the backfield, forcing a 4th-and-22 49ers punt.

No. 4

Littleton was at it again against the Niners early in the second quarter, coming up with his second blocked punt of the season and fourth since the beginning of the 2017 season. The blocked punt rolled out of the back of the end zone for a touchback. Littleton's big day was not over, he finished the game with 10 tackles — three for loss — two sacks, and a blocked punt.

No. 3

The cross-town Chargers also felt the effect Littleton's special teams ability in Week 3's game in the Coliseum.

The University of Washington product snuck past the Chargers' punt team nearly untouched and took the ball off the foot of punter Drew Kaser. Safety Blake Countess pounced on the ball and put the Rams up 21-6 in the second quarter.

No. 2

Littleton remained a thorn in the side of the 49ers in the clubs' second meeting of the season in Week 17.

The signal-caller picked off quarterback Nick Mullens twice in the regular season's final game — the second of which was returned for the first touchdown of Littleton's career.

No. 1

Littleton earned his first-career postseason interception on football's greatest stage, picking off quarterback Tom Brady's first pass of Super Bowl LIII.

Brady threw to his right in search of wide receiver Chris Hogan, but the pass was broken up by corner Nickell Robey-Coleman and Littleton was able to dive under the ball just in time, giving it to Goff and the offense early.

Littleton left Atlanta with a pretty impressive stat line, boasting 10 tackles, an interception, and two passes defensed.
