Pro Football Focus included three Rams in its team of the week following Week 2. PFF's defensive squad is led by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who stopped the run and put pressure on Cardinals QB Sam Bradford on Sunday.
Here's what each player did in Week 2 to earn his spot.
Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams – 92.3
This was vintage Donald, with the Rams star defender racking up a hit and three hurries as a pass-rusher. He also made an impact against the run, with all four of his tackles resulting in a defensive stop.
Aqib Talib, Los Angeles Rams – 87.9
Talib has been everything the Rams expected and more so far, and didn't allow a single reception against the Cardinals. Of the three passes thrown into his coverage, Talib broke up two on his own, and like Smith allowed a passer rating of 39.6 on his targeted passes.
Brandin Cooks, Los Angeles Rams – 87.3
Cooks might not have found the end zone but he still had a huge day. He led all wide receivers with an average of 4.68 yards per route run on the afternoon, picking up 159 yards from 34 routes run. From the seven catchable passes thrown his way, he caught every single one.
Donald and Talib are the Rams' first defensive players to appear on PFF's team of the week in 2018. In Week 1, the team included four of L.A.'s offensive linemen.
