3 takeaways from Los Angeles Rams 29-27 win over Green Bay Packers in Week 8
2. Career day for Reynolds
Since Sean McVay tends to stick with only using three wide receivers for the most part, Josh Reynolds hasn’t really seen as much action as he would prefer during his second NFL season, although Sunday was another opportunity to shine. With Cooper Kupp missing his second game in a row, Reynolds was in another position to receive additional passes thrown in his direction along with benefitting from the Packers’ defense focusing most of their attention on Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods.
So how did Reynolds look against Green Bay? Well, let’s just say there’s a reason why Los Angeles was so high on Reynolds last year, and wanted to make sure he was still part of the roster for the 2018 season since chances are, they wouldn’t have defeated Green Bay.
Not only did Reynolds catch three passes for 42 yards, but two of those receptions happened to be in the end zone, showing the former Texas A&M can in fact live up to the hype when given the opportunity. As for what happens when Kupp is healthy enough to return, well knowing McVay, he’ll figure out a way to keep Reynolds involved to make the offense even more dangerous for the second half.
