    Arrow Early Season Stats

    Here's where the Rams are, statistically, after only two weeks of play. I thought this might be interesting, considering the inconsistency around the league.

    *Despite numerous injuries to the secondary, the Rams are 6th overall in pass defense, but opposing offenses have only passed the ball 48 times, tied for second least in the league. Quarterbacks have completed 66.7% of their passes against the Rams, tied for fourth worst.

    *The rushing defense, predictably enough, is 29th overall. They've given up an average of 5.7 yards per rush, 31st in the NFL.

    *The total defense has allowed 6 yards per play, tied for fifth worst.

    *The kicking teams are awful, averaging 15.3 yards per kick return (4th worst), and Shaun McDonald averages 3.7 yards per return taking back punts. Meanwhile, the Rams have allowed 25.2 yards per kick return and 10.5 per punt return.

    *A year after leading the NFL in takeaways, the Rams are the only team in the league without a takeaway. Only two teams have one takeaway.

    *Despite being -5 in turnover ratio (second worst), the Rams' offense ranks 9th in total yardage. The group is tied for 4th with 6.3 yards per play.

    *They are middle-of-the-pack on third down (41.7%) but 2-for-2 on fourth down.

    *The offense is tied for 6th most penalties.

    *The passing offense is ranked 5th with 522 yards and the 72.3% completion rate is 3rd best. They average 8.57 yards per pass.

    *The rushing offense has totaled 206 yards, ranked 22nd. However, they are tied for 8th overall with 4.6 yards per rush. The fact that they've had (only?) 45 rushing attempts (tied for 6th least), explains the difference. They are one of ten teams without a 20+ yard run so far.

    *The team has scored only 3 touchdowns - 2 passing, 1 rushing.

    *Aeneas Williams leads the defensive team with 15 tackles. Adam Archuleta comes next with 13 total tackles.

    *Marc Bulger is ranked 7th overall with a 95.5 quarterback rating.

    *Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce are 2nd and 3rd in the NFL with 217 and 214 receiving yards, clearly placing them as the top receiving duo in the league. They are also 2nd and 3rd in receptions, but Bruce (17) beats Holt (16) by one.

    *The only players who have registered a sack are Pisa Tinoisamoa, Bryce Fisher, and Damione Lewis.

    *Only five players - Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce, Dane Looker, Marshall Faulk, and Shaun McDonald - have a reception after two games.

    *Steven Jackson is averaging 6 yards per rush (10/60).

    *The Rams have 5 more first downs (41) than their opponents (35).

    *The playcalling ratio has been 41% run plays, 59% pass plays.

    Let's just hope that Martz doesn't stray too far from his commitment to the running game. Besides helping the passing game, it's great for the defense and it's stats. Pound the ball and keep our D and the opponents O both off the field.
