NY Giants must worry about Aaron Donald and these Rams stars Sunday
Number 4: Rams’ receiving Core
With the NY Giants’ secondary is already having a very rough start to the year, the Rams elite receiving core looks ready to dominate.
Led by Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, DeSean Jackson, Van Jefferson, and Tyler Higbee, this Rams receiving core looks elite per usual.
New York’s secondary has had a very questionable start to the year, ranking 11th in passing yards allowed, 10th in passing TD’s allowed, and 8th in net yards per pass. When you compare that to the Rams receiving core being 3rd in receiving yards and 5th in receiving TD’s, the Giants secondary has to return to last years form to have a chance to slow them down.
The receiver that worries me the most is Cooper Kupp. Kupp ranks 3rd in receiving yards, 2nd in receptions, 2nd in receiving TD’s, and is ranked 4th in receptions for 20+ yards. He has truly broken out as an elite receiver this year and I honestly do not see the Giants secondary slowing him down.
Next is Robert Woods and DeSean Jackson, these two make for an extremely deadly deep threat. Robert Woods has 27 receptions for 322 yards and 2 TD’s on the season. Woods is a proven veteran who can be used as an elite deep threat who will cause problems for the Giants secondary.
DeSean Jackson is a player every Giants fan knows for the wrong reasons. While Jackson’s numbers are not the most impressive, only tallying 7 receptions for 215 yards and 1 TD. His yards per reception is absolutely terrifying. With a ridiculous 30.7 yards per reception, Jackson still has unbelievable speed and separation in his old age.
The NY Giants are going to have their hands full defensively this week. If Patrick Graham can find a way to magically turn this defense back to what it was last year, the NY Giants could truly have a chance to slow down this electric Rams offense.
However, with the way this year has been going I do not see this happening.
