From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Britt made a great diving catch to set up what should have been a game-winning or tying score late against San Diego, but that was about all he did, with Stedman Bailey assuming the role of #1 receiver.

General News (Thu Nov 27): practiced fully on Thursday.

Week 13: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Shaun Hill has thrown one TD per game since returning as the starter in Week 11 - 20/29 for 220 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown vs. Denver (with three sacks taken for -14 yards), and then 18/35 for 198 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown (with one sack taken for -7 yards) in San Diego last week. Over the last two starts, he's relied on Jared Cook (14 targets for 6/46/0 receiving), Kenny Britt (12 for 6/165/1) and Stedman Bailey (12 for 10/115/1) the most, going to his wide receivers for the passing scores. The Raiders' pass D is ranked 12th in the NFL averaging 233.7 net yards allowed per game, but they have given up 20 passing scores over 11 games vs. just five interceptions (tied for third-least in the league) and a mere 12 sacks recorded (dead last in the NFL). They don't pressure opposing passers much at all this season. Alex Smith threw 20/36 for 217 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions at Oakland last weekend (two sacks taken for -17 yards), while Philip Rivers managed 22/34 for 180 yards, one TD and zero interceptions (with two sacks taken for -13 yards). This is a good matchup for Hill and his favorite targets.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)

Britt was both the most targeted, and most productive of the Rams receivers, as clear an indication as any that Davis struggled getting the ball outside on Sunday. Britt never attempted to challenge the Cardinals deep on Sunday, and simply put drives were just not sustained well enough to get him involved consistently on short-intermediate routes. Between an unproductive run game and a quarterback who was looking primarily at his tight ends on passing plays, the opportunities for Britt and the Rams wide receivers simply were not there on Sunday. Credit the Cardinals secondary too, Cromartie has been consistent all year and Patrick Peterson had arguably the best game of his career. That will make it difficult on any receiving corps, but especially one that's underperformed all season.

2014 Week 11 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 128 / 1 rec)

In Shaun Hill's first game as the main QB, Kenny Britt finally got his opportunity to shine. Britt got the Rams into the endzone on a beautiful 63 yard Td. Britt had some nifty hipwork and got his rookie CB turned around, resulting in Britt sailing past him, hauling in the pass and streaking for the endzone. Britt wasn't done, as he then ran a crossing route, found himself in the middle of the defense and caught a 21 yard strike from Hill. He followd that up with an 11 yard catch on a slant route, where he showed his physicality after the catch. There was a time when Britt was considered one of the rising stars at WR in the league. He certainly looks the part, but has been plagued with off-the-field issues and injuries. The Austin Davis era didn't do Britt many favors, either. But Shaun Hill seemed to give Britt the same opportunities that he gave Calvin Johnson once upon a time, and it resulted in a big game for Britt. If Britt is available on waivers, he needs to be added quickly. He has the talent to dominate, but things just haven't fallen into place for him. If Hill's first game is any indication, that could change over the final portion of this season.

2014 Week 12 vs SD (6 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)

Kenny Britt didn't get a lot of targets, as his primary role was to stretch the field. Britt did so on a beautiful stop-and-go move to burn the Chargers for a 51 yard touchdown in the 2nd half. But a facemask penalty wiped out the TD. Aside from a short 10 yard pass across the middle, Britt had a bad looking box score going into the final drive. But then Hill threw another deep ball to Britt deep toward the goalline, and Britt made an excellent diving catch for a 27 yard gain. Britt's poor numbers don't change anything from a week ago. He is the primary deep threat with a QB that likes to throw deep. He doesn't, however, appear to be getting a lot of short and intermediate looks, which is keeping him from putting together consistent performances.
