The Los Angeles Rams have formally reached out to Kliff Kingsbury regarding his potential interest in joining their coaching staff as an offensive assistant/consultant for the remainder of the season, according to NFL Network’s Peter Schrager.
Kingsbury, 39, was fired after more than five years at the helm for Texas Tech and is also a former NFL players, who spent time with teams such as the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and the New York Jets.
Kingsbury has been drawing interest from several NFL teams.
Rams to Discuss Contract Extension With Sean McVay
The Los Angeles Rams, who are headed to a Super Bowl showdown with the New England Patriots, are planning to work out a new contract with head coach Sean McVay, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.
McVay, 32, could be headed for a deal that could come close to that of the higher tier coaches in the NFL, such as Jon Gruden, especially if he can bring home a Lombardi Trophy to Los Angeles.
Worst Call In Playoff History
On January 20th 2019, the New Orleans Saints hosted the Los Angeles Rams for the NFC Championship game. The Saints entered the game as the favorite. The electrifying game kept fans and analyst on the edge of there seats. Drew Brees and Jared Goff both performed at with top-notch talent.
The Rams defeated the Saints in overtime 26-23 with a 57-yard field goal from Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein. The real issue in the game was the missed pass interference call in the 4th quarter. The call was missed which resulted with the Saints not getting better field position and an automatic first down. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the NFL officials told him they “blew the call”. This blown call will go down in history as one of the worst calls in playoff history. The Los Angeles Rams will go to Super Bowl LIII.
Three Key Matchups For Rams Vs Saints and Patriots Vs Cheifs
Rams At Saints
These to teams played a very entertaining game in early back in November. The Saints won that game 45-35 in a game that pretty much decided home field advantage for the Saints. The Rams will look to rebound after that November lost with a big win to make it to the super bowl.
- Alvin Kamara vs. Corey Littleton and Mark Barron
In the first meeting this season Kamara rushed for 82 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns. He also added 4 catches for 34 yards and one touchdown. The Rams had no answer for Kamara in the game. Littleton and Barron could not cover him out the backfield or even in bracket coverage. I think Saints need to put LaMarcus Joyner or slot corner Nickell Robey-Coleman on Kamara on passing downs
2. Todd Gurley and CJ Anderson vs Saints run defense
Todd Gurley and CJ Anderson ran for a combined 238 rushing yards and three touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys last week. The Saints come in with the 2nd ranked run defense in the NFL. But the Saints are missing defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, who tore his Achilles tendon last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. That is a big loss for the Saints defense, look for Saints to put extra bodies in the box to slow the Rams running attack down.
3. Michael Thomas Vs. Michael Peters and Aqib Talib
In the first meeting Michael Thomas torched the Rams for 12 catches for 211 and one touchdown. Thomas was mostly covered by Marcus Peters in that game, Peters had an horrible game that day. Look for the Saints to try to get Thomas matched up with Peters again.
Aqib Talib will play in this game, he did not play the first time around because of injury. The way Talib likes to play and his body size matches up will with Thomas.
1.James White Vs. Chiefs Linebackers
Against the Los Angeles Chargers last week James White 15 catches for 97 yards out the backfield. White is one of Tom Brady’s primary targets. Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland will have there hands full trying to slow White down. Chiefs will need to use safeties and corners to cover White if they wan to have any success.
2. Sony Michel Vs. Chiefs front Seven
When Michel is in the game for the Patriots it usually mean its a run. Michel ran well last week rushing for 129 yards on 24 carries. The Cheifs have trouble stopping the run although they did pretty good last week against the Colts. I think the Patriots will try to run the ball a lot in this game to control the clock, The Cheifs will need to be ready to play big boy football.
3. Chiefs passing offense Vs. Patriots passing defense
The Cheifs come at you with a lot weapons on offense. Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce,Sammy Watkins and lead by Patrick Mahomes. The Cheifs offense is fast and dymanic. In there first meeting this season Mahomes threw for 352 yards and for touchdowns. Hill caught seven passes for 142 and 3 toucdowns. Mahomes and Hill made the Patriots defense look foolish.
The Patriots will need Stephen Gilmore to be more Physical with Hill at the line of scrimmage. Doing that disrupts timing of the passing offense. The Patriots will also have stay deispline in there coverages and create some pressure. I think the Chiefs should play a lot man covergae and put a spy on Mahomes so he can not make those crazy throws outside the pocket.
