Here are seven stats from Sunday:The Rams improved to 5-0 on the season with the win in Seattle on Sunday. The Rams are now 10-1 in games played outside the Coliseum under Sean McVay. Dating back to the 2017 season Authentic Tyler Higbee Jersey , the Rams have now won five consecutive road games. This stretch marks the sixth time in franchise history that a Rams team has won five straight road contests. The last time it was accomplished was in 2001, when the Rams won all eight of their road games. With the Monday night game yet to be played, Todd Gurley leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns through Week 5. He tallied two 2-yard rushing touchdowns and one 5-yard rushing score on Sunday. He has now scored a touchdown in eight consecutive regular season games.Robert Woods lead the offense in yardage on Sunday, tallying 92 yards on five receptions and added the longest run of the game (56 yards). Yesterday’s contest marked the 100th career start for starting guard Rodger Saffold. Since entering the league, Saffold has played four different positions along the offensive line: 44 starts at left guard, 38 at left tackle, 13 at right guard, and five at right tackle.Aaron Donald notched his third sack of the season on Sunday. In doing so, he passed Grant Wistrom (41.5) on the Rams’ all-time sack list (with 42.0). Starting linebacker Cory Littleton blocked a Michael Dickson punt on Sunday. It’s his second blocked punt of the season, and the 4th of his career. Bonus: Despite missing the game-tying extra point - which would’ve made the score 31 all - Cairo Santos made both field goal tries on Sunday, including the game-sealer from 39 yards out with just over six minutes left to play.2018 Los Angeles Rams 53-Man roster projection: Preseason Week 4 edition Previous versionsPost-2018 NFL Draft (April 30)Pre-training camp (July 28)Training camp Week 2 (August 3)Training camp Week 3 (August 13)QB (2)(2017: 2 kept on initial 53-man roster)In: Jared Goff, Sean MannionOut: Brandon Allen, Luis PerezNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/ABarring a trade, I’m comfortable locking this in. I’m also comfortable 100% not locking it in for 2019.RB (3)(2017: 3)In: Todd Gurley, Malcolm Brown, John KellyOut: Justin Davis, Nick HolleyNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AHad Davis been available the last two weeks, I could have been willing to put him here. But dealing with a hamstring issue, he’s been unable to get on the field. And while Kelly might have had the best cumulative preseason performance of any Ram on the roster, Brown’s still right there in the mix for his role.The question of course would be two-fold: workload and special teams contributions.Behind Just Todd Gurley, there’s not going to be a ton of work available. So loading up here likely will require significant special teams contributions and not be based on running ability per se.WR (6)(2017: 6)In: Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, Pharoh Cooper, Mike ThomasOut: Steven Mitchell, Fred Brown, KhaDarel Hodge, Codey McElroy, Jojo Natson, Kendal ThompsonNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AThis one’s really close. Mitchell, Brown and Hodge are right there behind Thomas. The key to remember here is that Thomas isn’t practice squad-eligible. So a decision to have someone jump Thomas would end his time with the Rams.For now, I’ve got him in there, but I could totally see any of the three doing it.TE/FB (3)(2017: 3)In: Gerald Everett, Tyler Higbee, Temarrick HemingwayOut: Johnny Mundt Youth Michael Brockers Jersey , Henry Krieger-CobleNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AHas Hemingway done enough? Even if he hasn’t, have Mundt or HKC?OL (9)(2017: 10)In: Andrew Whitworth, Rob Havenstein, Rodger Saffold, Jamil Demby, John Sullivan, Joseph Noteboom, Brian Allen, Austin Blythe, Jake EldrenkampOut: Darrell Williams, Cornelius Lucas, Aaron Neary, Jeremiah KoloneSuspended: Jamon BrownNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: Eldrenkamp IN, Williams OUTI just can’t anymore. I wish Williams all the best, but I can’t abide by his play on the roster. I’ll plug in Eldrenkamp, but the truth is the Rams will need to make investments here again next offseason after making so many this year. They were simply behind on the timeline, and one year isn’t going to catch them up.DL (7)(2017: 5)In: Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, Ndamukong Suh, Dominique Easley, Ethan Westbrooks, Sebastian Joseph-Day, John Franklin-MyersOut: Tanzel Smart, Omarius Bryant, McKay Murphy, Chunky Clements, Lord HyeamangNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AStill like this group. And I think the Easley move to OLB may have just been temporary, but we’ll see. Nonetheless, I’m keeping him here for now.OLB/EDGE (4)(2017: 6)In: Samson Ebukam, Matt Longacre, Justin Lawler, Ejuan PriceOut: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Brian Womac, Trevon Young, Ryan Davis, Marcus MartinIR: Morgan FoxNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: Price IN , Okoronkwo OUTLike Davis at RB, I can’t comfortably include Oko at this point having missed out on all of training camp and all of the preseason to this point.ILB (5)(2017: 4)In: Mark Barron, Micah Kiser, Ramik Wilson, Cory Littleton, Tegray ScalesOut: Bryce HagerNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AI could see Scales completely on the outs as a linebacker but making the 53-man for his special teams contributions. He continues to be a core component there.CB (6)(2017: 5)In: Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib, Nickell Robey-Coleman, Troy Hill, Sam Shields, Dominique HatfieldOut: Taurean Nixon, Ramon Richards, Curtis MikellIR: Kevin PetersonNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AHas any of the depth done enough on defense or on teams to get to the threshold for a roster decision?S (5)(2017: 6)In: Lamarcus Joyner, John Johnson III, Marqui Christian, Blake Countess, Travin HowardOut: Steven Parker, Isaiah Johnson, Afolabi Laguda, Nate HolleyNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/ANobody played more special teams snaps on Saturday than Howard. Not sure if that’s a direct indication of his teams value, but there’s obviously interest there.ST (3)(2017: 3)In: Greg Zuerlein, Johnny Hekker, Jake McQuaideOut: Sam FickenNo longer on roster: N/AChanges from last projection: N/AYup.Practice SquadRB Justin Davis, WR Steven Mitchell, WR KhaDarel Hodge, TE Johnny Mundt, OL Aaron Neary, DT Omarius Bryant, EDGE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, OLB Trevon Young, CB Curtis Mikell, S Steven ParkerNow there’s a bit of insincerity here. Teams usually take a group of their own roster fringe and then add a couple outsiders to put together their initial practice squad. In the days after forming their initial squad last year, the Rams made a handful of moves to chop it up.So don’t take this one with nearly as much confidence as the 53-man projections.What did I get way wrong? Who didn’t make the practice squad that you like? Who are you looking at on Thursday that could change this projection fundamentally?
