Rams Pass Rush Is Beat Up

The strongest unit the Rams have is their front seven on defense and what they do extremely well is rush the passer. So far they have 19 sacks on the season, which puts them in a tie for the third highest in the NFL behind the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers.

This will be the biggest problem the Browns will face on Sunday, but luckily for the Browns they won’t be facing everyone the Rams’ pass rushing unit has to offer.

One of the main pass rushers for the Rams is LB Alec Ogletree. He has already been ruled out for Sunday’s contest with an ankle sprain.

Losing Ogletree on defense is a huge blow for the Rams. Without him, the Browns offensive line now has a much smaller burden in terms of buying QB Josh McCown time in the pocket.

Life will be much easier for McCown and the offense without Ogletree busting up the pocket.
