Powerhouse playoff performance

When the Rams entered the post-season, there were many questions about the defense. Specifically, the secondary had lost both starting safeties, and the cornerbacks not named Jalen Ramsey had pretty significant question marks.

The greatest concern in the mind of many was the fact that if opposing offenses found success at running the football, then the Rams would need to counter by putting one of their newly promoted safeties in the box. Thankfully, there was someone on the defensive front who was not going to let that happen.

A’Shawn Robinson picked up exactly where he left off a year ago. In fact, he may have added a bit more ferocity. Rams reporter J.B. Long certainly noticed as well. What did he have to say about him?

That was over a span of 111 defensive snaps folks. 22 tackles per 111 snaps. That works out to a 19.8 percent tackle rate, or one tackle for every five snaps of the football.  Over the course of an NFL season? That works out to nearly 200 tackles.

And we’re talking playoffs’ performance.
