Pro Football Focus (PFF) has a team of more than 300 staffers evaluating every NFL play from the Hall of Fame game to the Super Bowl. After each game, players, as well as each team's offensive, defensive and special teams units, are graded on a scale of 0 to 100; the closer a player or unit is to 100, the better. A full explanation of their evaluation process can be found here for additional context.
Here's a look at some of the noteworthy Rams-centric assessments leading into Week 15.
LITTLETON STAYS CONSISTENT WITH TACKLING
Already one of the top tacklers at his position this season, it should come as no surprise that linebacker Cory Littleton has remained one of the Rams' most consistent players in that category.
Sunday's tackling grade of 81.1 marked the ninth time Littleton has posted higher than an 80. He finished with a team-high 10 total tackles against the Seahawks in Week 14.
At his current pace, he'll have a good chance at beating his career high for tackles in a season. He has 112 with three games remaining and had 125 in 2018.
WHITWORTH'S SECOND-HALF SURGE
Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth has fortified that side of the line in recent weeks, especially when it comes to the passing game.
PFF's Rams-focused Twitter account shared yesterday that Whitworth's pass-blocking grade of 88.2 is tied for the fourth best over the last seven games among offensive linemen who have played a minimum of 350 snaps this season. It's up from 74.4 through his first six games.
It's an important development, because it comes as the Rams close out the regular season facing two of PFF's top 10 pass-rushing edge defenders (Cardinals' Chandler Jones, 49ers' Nick Bosa). The Cowboys' Robert Quinn is No. 31 but shouldn't be taken lightly.

ANOTHER STRONG GAME FOR WOODS
Rams wide receiver Robert Woods nearly eclipsed 100 yards receiving for the second game in a row. Still, his seven catches for 98 yards and one touchdown on Sunday understandably caught the attention of the evaluators at PFF.
Woods' receiving grade of 83.9 against the Seahawks gave him back-to-back weeks of placing in the top 10 at his position in that category. It also signified his best receiving performance of the season in the eyes of the scouting service.
