Week 12: vs St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Philip Rivers came out of the bye modestly against the Raiders, pitching a 'W' but only compiling 22/34 for 193 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions against Oakland. The team was working to get Ryan Mathews back up to speed, so they had a balanced attack with 34 pass attempts and 32 rushes during the game. Rivers threw the TD to Malcom Floyd (six for 4/44/1) and also hit Keenan Allen regularly (13 targets for 8/63/0). Antonio Gates was peripherally involved with three targets for 3/32/0 to finish third among Chargers' receivers last week. Though it was good enough for a 'W' in the league, the performance was lack-luster from a fantasy standpoint. The Rams' pass D held Peyton Manning to one TD pass last week (the first time all year he's only thrown one score), while he also threw two costly interceptions (34/54 for 369 net yards, one TD and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -20 yards). Two weeks ago, it was Arizona with only one TD pass (28/41 for 307 net yards passing, one TD and one interception generated by St. Louis). As you can see, the Rams aren't shutting down opposing passers, but they are getting pass pressure to bear and converting some turnovers into upset victories. To date, the Rams rank 19th in the NFL averaging 247.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with 14 passing scores offset by six interceptions and 19 sacks generated (23rd in the NFL in both the latter categories). Rivers has a good matchup here, but he'll need to be careful with the ball as the Rams are angling for turnovers of late in this phase of the game.
