Week 21: at Los Angeles Rams

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Tom Brady continues to show that in the playoffs he is just a different quarterback than the regular season. In each of his last two games, Brady has thrown for over 340 yards in both games and has now thrown for over 300 yards in 11 of his last 14 playoff games. This is a unit that has been able to identify the pre-snap read and get the ball out of Brady's hands quickly to James White, Julian Edelman or even Rob Gronkowski who had a vintage Gronkowski game against the Chiefs last week. This is a unit that will take whatever mismatch the defense is willing to give up with the variety of playmakers that the Patriots have on the field. The Rams secondary continues to be a unit that has largely underperformed this season. While the unit has dealt with injuries primarily to Aqib Talib who missed a large portion of the year, the Rams have been a unit that has been a merely average team against the pass compared to the expectations heading into this season with the acquisitions of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. Peters has been extremely disappointing and will be matched up this week against a combination of Phillip Dorsett and Chris Hogan. The good news for the Rams this week is that their strength is at the slot corner position as Nickell Robey-Coleman has been one of the best slot corners in the league this year and could pose problems for Julian Edelman in this game. The one concern for the Rams could be their ability to cover Rob Gronkowski in this game as the team has allowed seven tight ends this season to go for over 50 yards and five tight ends to go for over 90 yards.
