3 reasons Los Angeles Rams were big winners in Week 4 against Minnesota Vikings
3. Donald, Suh beginning to heat up
Over the years, Aaron Donald has quickly made a name for himself as one of the league’s most dangerous defensive players, and it was a huge relief to see the team finally reward him with a hefty extension prior to Week 1. Watching Donald plow his way through opponents is almost terrifying at times, and the addition of Ndamukong Suh in free agency was expected to make this defensive line one of the best in the league, without question.
So far, the duo of Donald and Suh has been pretty solid for the most part after one month of play, but the two deserve plenty of credit for stepping up when needed the most during the team’s win over the Vikings in Week 4. While Donald managed to record two sacks on Kirk Cousins in the second half, Suh was able to get to the Vikings quarterback as well, and helping hold Minnesota to just 11 points in the second half was a huge accomplishment.
Some questioned how two players like Donald and Suh would end up working together on the same defensive line, but this was one of the best moves the Rams could have made. Based off four games, these two seem to just be scratching the surface of the impact they’re going to make throughout 2018, giving Los Angeles fans plenty of reasons to be excited about the next three months.
