Rams QB Matthew Stafford had a ton of praise for WR Cooper Kupp after their win vs. Jacksonville. Kupp turned in another superb day in what is becoming routine for him with eight catches, 129 yards and a touchdown. It pushed his totals on the season to 100 receptions, 1,366 yards and 11 scores with five more games to go. 

“I mean, he does everything right, you know?” Stafford said, via “I don’t know, people probably watch him on TV and think he’s 5’10 and runs 4.6 and all that kind of stuff. He’s 6’2, 210, and runs great. He’s got a great feel for the game. He’s a great competitor. He understands the game. He does everything right. He leads that receiver group in the right way, so I pinch myself every day. Just happy I get a chance to play with a guy like that. I have a lot of respect for how he goes about his business and how he goes about attacking each opportunity, whether it be practice or games. And then he’s great on game day. Run after the catch, getting open versus man, feeling voids versus zone. He’s got a great feel for the game of football.”

  • Rams C Brian Allen sprained his MCL and is day-to-day this week, per HC Sean McVay. Allen has not been ruled out of this week’s game but will be limited to start the week. (Jourdan Rodrigue)


  • Seahawks HC Pete Carroll was impressed with the performance that RB Rashaad Penny turned in Sunday: “This was a good start for him… This was the best opportunity that he’s had, and I’m hoping he can jump from here.” (John Boyle)
  • Carroll noted G Damien Lewis has a chance to practice Wednesday while ruling out RT Brandon Shell from practicing on Wednesday or Thursday: “He’s been playing up against it, and he really couldn’t punch late in the game.” (Boyle)
