51. . . . Andrew Whitworth, left tackle. 8. player

Whitworth is the Rams equivalent of the Philadelphia Eagles’ Bodyguard’

Left tackle Jason Peters has been the bodyguard for the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ since 2009 and the Rams’ equivalent is left tackle Andre Whitworth. He may not have gotten the national attention for most of his career after playing on some bad Cincinnati Bengals teams, but the change of scenery seems to have reinvigorated him. There hasn’t been much of a decline in his level of play.

Whitworth is still going strong in his 15th year in the NFL. Versus the Cowboys, he played 75 snaps and allowed one hurry, but he didn’t give up any sacks or quarterback hits. Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat has a tough challenge ahead of him in Week 2.

7. player. 51. . . . Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback

The ink on Jalen’s Ramsey’s five-year $105 million deal isn’t quite dry yet, but the deal is done. The debate is whether or not the 2017 All-Pro is paying dividends (pun intended). In Week 1, he allowed eight receptions and 81 receiving yards.

Here’s the bright side if you’re a Rams fan. He didn’t allow a touchdown. He broke up a pass, didn’t get flagged for any penalties, and played all 72 defensive snaps. It would also be unfair to state his performance in Week 1 is indicative of what he’s done in his career: He’s still among the league’s best players at his position, and he could rebound nicely against the Eagles in Week 2.
