LA Rams outside linebacker Terrell Lewis has been looking for the path to the NFL spotlight. He’s in his third NFL season, but has been hampered by nagging injuries that have inevitably persuaded the Rams to send him to the inactive list. Out of 33 games possible, Lewis appeared in just 20 games in his first two seasons.
This year, the Rams’ defense is looking for more, and so far he may be delivering results. In two games in the 2022 season, he had six tackles and one interception. In the first half of Week 3, Lewis has added two touchdowns, one interception, and one key pass breakup.
The LA Rams’ defense has been playing very well in the first quarter and a half in this one. But after reaching a lead of 13-0, the LA Rams offense has gone cold and the Arizona Cardinals offense has begun to find their range. While the LA Rams have scored the only touchdown in the game, the Arizona Cardinals have scored the last six points, drawing to within one touchdown.
This game is anything but decided. The LA Rams may be in the lead by seven points, but they have been outscored 45-10 in the second half of the first two games. Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals have kicked it into overdrive in the second half of their first two games, outscoring their opponents by a margin of 36-21.
The Rams will need to change things up in the second half, doing something that the team has not done yet this season. The Rams will need to outplay their opponent in the second half in this one. The Rams have passed the ball 17 times and rushed the ball just eight times in this one.
Can the Rams mix things up on offense to keep the Cardinals’ defense off balance? To do that, the Rams must thwart their own tendencies and become unpredictable in the second half. Can they? Stay tuned . . .
