Los Angeles Rams: 3 Takeaways From Week 9 Loss vs. Saints

USA TODAY Sports

Cooper Kupp is Key to This Offenses Success

Cooper Kupp returned from injury in Week 9, after missing two games. Kupp came out strong in this game, finishing with five receptions for 89 yards and a score.

His touchdown came on a 41-yard touchdown from Jared Goff down the left sideline. He would catch a drag route and would break a few tackles, en route to the end zone.

This play came on third down, which Kupp has been Goff’s security blanket on third down all season.

Kupp has been phenomenal this year, totaling 527 yards on 35 catches and six touchdowns this year. The thing is, he’s done that in seven games, still putting him at 26th in the NFL in receiving yards.

The Rams have Robert Woods (who might be the most underrated WR in the NFL) and Brandin Cooks, which makes it even more impressive what Kupp is doing in his second season.

The more the merrier is the motto the Rams use when it comes to their WR corp. If Kupp doesn’t miss two games, we could see all three of the Rams wide outs in the top 10 in receiving yards.

Cooks is eighth with 757 yards, while Woods is ninth with 743 yards.

The offense just seems to play better when Kupp is in the huddle. The Rams might have lost yesterday, but having a player like Kupp is key to the Rams doing damage in the playoffs.
