Blown calls happen all the time, but these no calls were SO blatant that I honestly cannot think of any other game where I saw so many obviously missed calls that made me think the game was fixed. If I was the commissioner and McVay sent me a tape of all the non calls, I would honestly probe those specific refs just to make sure they didnt have any financial gain in the outcome of the game.
Well you can't have the commish that has his hand in the cookie jar to admonish the Refs.

See Spygate.

Odd music choice in that one.
There's a guy I think on reddit or maybe twitter he goes through almost every game and puts that song over the play of the game. You can see a clip of a guy hitting a grand slam to that song or a 60 yard touch down or a big three at the buzzer all to win it accompanied by Celine Dion :D

Rams Week 5 report card: Grading every position vs. Seahawks
By: Cameron DaSilva

Quarterback
After two straight weeks of absolutely lights-out play from Jared Goff, he came back down to earth against Seattle. It was a bit surprising to see considering how depleted the defense was, namely with Earl Thomas being out. Goff wasn’t terrible by any means and had a decent game, completing 23 of 32 passes for 321 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

One of his interceptions was on a Hail Mary at the end of the first half and the other may have been pass interference at the goal line, but he also coughed up two fumbles, both of which were recovered by the Rams, fortunately.

Grade: B

Running back
Todd Gurley was limited to just 77 yards on 22 carries, while also adding 36 yards receiving on four catches. His biggest impact came around the goal line where he had three touchdowns. His clutch run on the Rams’ final drive to make it second-and-2 – even though it probably should’ve been a first down or second-and-inches, at the very least – helped seal the win and set up Goff’s sneak.

He was the only running back to play a single snap on Sunday as both Justin Davis and Malcolm Brown were kept on the sideline all day.

Grade: B

Wide receiver
All things considered, the Rams’ receivers had a very good game. Cooper Kupp was nearly unstoppable before suffering a concussion, Brandin Cooks made a nice catch on the play where he was hit in the head and Robert Woods stepped up nicely as the No. 1 receiver. Woods finished with 92 yards receiving and another 53 on the ground, while Kupp had 90 yards and a touchdown in this first half alone.

Josh Reynolds and KhaDarel Hodge played well in spot duty, catching three passes for 53 yards.

Grade: A-

Tight end
The tight ends had their best game yet this season, catching a combined five passes for 50 yards. Entering Week 5, Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee had a total of six catches for 71 yards, so they nearly matched their season-long production in one game. They were more integral in the offense with Kupp and Cooks out, giving them more opportunities to catch passes.

Grade: B-

Offensive line
The offensive line has been arguably the best unit on the Rams roster this season and might be the best line in all of football. Goff was once again kept clean in the pocket and was only hit twice, having all the time in the world to find receivers. The change from Jamon Brown to Austin Blythe has made a huge difference for the better.

Grade: A

Defensive line
With the exception of a couple sacks by Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, the defensive line was not very good on Sunday. Seattle’s offensive line was able to push the Rams’ defenders off the ball fairly easily to the tune of 190 rushing yards on 32 carries. If Los Angeles isn’t going to generate pressure off the edges, it needs to get better production from its interior defenders.

Grade: C+

Inside linebacker
Mark Barron led the team with nine tackles in his 2018 debut, but he and Cory Littleton were involved in the Rams’ struggles against the run this weekend. Ramik Wilson only played one snap, too, which was somewhat surprising after he stepped up in Barron’s absence. The Rams simply have to be better in this area of the defense.

Grade: C+

Outside linebacker
Samson Ebukam has been one of the more inconsistent players for Los Angeles on defense and no one has stepped up as a reliable pass rusher just yet. John Franklin-Myers was good against Minnesota but was almost nowhere to be found on Sunday, which is an issue. The Rams generated hardly any pressure from the outside linebacker spot in Week 5, which puts a larger burden on the interior rushers.

Grade: C-

Cornerback
There’s no way around it: Marcus Peters was terrible against Seattle. He was burned for two touchdowns, flagged twice for holding and provided very little in coverage against Tyler Lockett. He doesn’t seem 100 percent healthy as he continues to recover from a calf injury. Nickell Robey-Coleman wasn’t much better, getting beat in coverage deep over the middle of the field. Troy Hill had a silly unnecessary roughness penalty called on him, but he played relatively well.

Grade: D

Safety
Lamarcus Joyner hasn’t had his name called very often this season, and that’s not a good thing. He’s missed tackles, hasn’t made many plays in coverage and doesn’t look like the same player that dominated last season. John Johnson has been better than Joyner thus far, but even he has taken a step back from last season. As the last line of defense, both safeties have to be better tackling in the open field than they were Sunday.

Grade: C+

Special teams
Cairo Santos missed an extra point and didn’t show off the strongest leg on kickoffs, but he made a 39-yarder to give the Rams the win. Blake Countess had a few nice kickoff returns and Cory Littleton blocked another punt, so it was a strong day from the Rams’ special teams unit.

Grade: A-

looks about right but I would have given the safety a D

I can't believe I have to root for the Raiders. I hate the Raiders but I hate Pete Carroll more.
