Marcus Peters gets an A for style alone in the Monday night win at Oakland. Peters pick-6 added the swag that the Rams seemed to have left back in Los Angeles.
Additionally, it was a shot across the bow of the NFC West, and every other team remaining on the Rams schedule in 2018.
Peters, who may yet erupt once or a dozen times this season, is a threat not just for an interception, but a quick six points. As good as the Rams may be up front on the defensive line, Monday night showed they may be as good or even better at defending against the pass.
Unless you’re a tight end.
Early on, it always seems the defense is out in front of the offense. Last night was not the case for the Rams. But Peters looks to be the kind of weapon that Wade Phillips will love. In tandem with Aqib Talib, Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh will be but one set of problems for opposing offensive coordinators and quarterbacks in the league.
As good as the Rams defense looked as soon as Donald was back in the fold, Peters showed last night they are not a one trick pony when Phillips has his guys on the field.
