Those moves have helped yield a league-leading defense that’s only allowed 13 points in two games, has shut out its opponents the last six quarters and surrendered exactly as many touchdown passes as you and I have this season: zero]]>

There are no true “super teams” in the NFL, but you could make the case that the Rams are the closest thing to one.

The man who joined the super team movement when he signed with the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant, is impressed by the Rams and seems interested in coming to L.A. to play football. Jokingly, we think.

Durant knows plenty about joining stacked teams, so what would one more super team matter]]>

However, two lesser-known players had a big impact on Monday night’s win, as well. Cory Littleton and Samson Ebukam played well in their 2018 debuts, their first season as primary starters in the NFL. Littleton led the team with 13 tackles, while Ebukam had three tackles for loss and found himself around Derek Carr on several occasions]]>

<![CDATA[Aqib Talib says Rams defense had to 'freestyle' against Jon Gruden]]>
There was so much uncertainty and a level of unknown surrounding the man they call Chucky that even the Rams didn’t know how to approach their game plan. Sure, they had a general idea, but there wasn’t much film to go off of.

Aqib Talib said on Tuesday that they had to “freestyle” early in the game before getting acclimated to the Raiders offense]]>

<![CDATA[Madden NFL 19 simulation: Here’s how the Broncos fare in the 2018 season]]> Case Keenum help lift the Broncos back into the playoffs? Can the defense be as dominant with the loss of Aqib Talib? We took a look at how Denver would fare in our Madden NFL 19 simulation:

Week 1: Broncos 29, Seahawks 26 (1-0, first in the AFC West)

Week 2: Broncos 23, Raiders 17 (2-0, first in the AFC West)

Week 3: Broncos 37, Ravens 3 (3-0, first in the AFC West)Huge victory for Denver as Case Keenum simply dominated Baltimore’s defense. The Broncos’ starting QB completed 24 of 29 passes for 307 yards and five touchdowns. He would earn the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance and Denver would climb to a 3-0 start]]>

<![CDATA[Broncos preview 2018: Secondary features new faces with same championship attitude]]> Aqib Talib fired the first shot, an accusation questioning a Broncos defense slowly dropping play-makers from their 2015 Super Bowl champions.

Edge rusher Demarcus Ware retired. Linebacker Danny Trevathan left in free agency. The Broncos’ cut safety TJ Ward a year ago and traded Talib to the Rams in the offseason, where he could play for his former Broncos’ defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

Then Talib made this comment to Sports Illustrated.

“That (Broncos) team was full of dogs, and now they’re all gone,” Talib said. “So, stop firing all the dogs.]]>

It’s still not exactly known how Wade Phillips will deploy his star corners, but in limited preseason action, Peters lined up on the right side of the defense with Aqib Talib on the left. If that continues in Week 1, Peters will see a lot of Cooper in his area on Monday night. Cooper primarily plays X receiver, lining up on the left side of the formation]]>

<![CDATA[Sean McVay helped negotiate Brandin Cooks trade with Bill Belichick]]> Trumaine Johnson and Sammy Watkins – Les Snead and the front office didn’t sit back and wait for players to come to them.

Instead, the Rams went out and acquired guys to replace Johnson and Watkins, trading for Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Brandin Cooks. It’s hard to imagine a team bringing in so much talent in a single offseason by way of the trade, but Snead wasn’t afraid to make deals happen]]>
