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 11 vs DEN (20 / 29 / 220 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Shaun Hill finally got a chance to start a game for St. Louis. After 2 months of letting young Austin Davis take the reins, Jeff Fisher handed the keys over to the veteran. Going against the Broncos, things were setup for Hill to throw the ball a lot. But the Rams surprisingly shut down the Broncos, Jeff Fisher ran a very conservative clock-killing gameplan, and Shaun Hill converted a few deep balls to give the Rams a shocking victory over the Denver Broncos. The Rams have not had a good year, but they've managed to beat both super bowl teams from a year ago, which has to be frustrating to their fans. Hill was very efficient, but also made some big throws early. He started things off with a nice drive deep into Broncos territory that ended in a field goal. Later on the Rams 3rd possession, Hill just fired the ball deep downfield to Kenny Britt, who beat his cornerback, ran under the ball and ran 63 yards for the TD. Hill did a great job of getting the ball far enough downfield that the WR didn't have to break momentum or wait for the ball. This let Britt run under it, make the catch and run for the TD. Hill came out firing again on the next drive, hitting Bailey across the middle for a big first, then throwing an accurate strike to Kenny Britt for 21 yards on a crossing route. Overall, Hill was very efficient in the first half, the Rams had good balance, and Kenny Britt was running wild. In the 2nd half, the Rams had a solid lead, and Fisher and the Rams ran clock and played ball control. Tre Mason ended up with 29 carries, and Shaun Hill didn't get a lot of throws. But he did convert a number of key third downs, helped move the chains and played turnover-free football. Hill wasn't asked to do much in this game, but when he did go downfield, he had success.

2014 Week 12 vs SD (18 / 35 / 198 / 1 / 2 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Shaun Hill did what most backups do. He had some good plays and some really bad plays. Penalties were not kind to the Rams. 2 Shaun Hill TD's were wiped out by penalties on the OL. But it's Hill's turnovers that were the difference in the game. Hill got things started with an ugly INT early on in a pass intended for Jared Cook. Hill never saw the defender and the INT ended the first drive. Later on in the half Hill was sacked, fumbled the ball and San Diego scored a TD on the fumble. Hill finally got a TD late in the fourth when he threw a fade route to Stedman Bailey for a short TD. Overall, Hill did a decent job of moving the ball downfield against the Chargers defense. Hill likes to go downfield, and connected twice with Kenny Britt on deep balls, one of which didn't end up counting due to a facemask penalty on a lineman. But Hill's final pass was the worst of the day, and ended the Rams day. On the 4, Hill never saw Gilchrist, and threw into double coverage. Britt was covered well by his primary defender, but Gilchrist dropped back and intercepted the pass.
