Gregg Williams Rushes Six on Final Play of Rams at Cardinals

By John Turney

Last week, on the final play of the Los Angeles Rams Rams at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, the Rams defensive coordinator  Gregg Williams rushed 3 and dropped 8 into coverage, including a nose tackle and it was successful.

This week in the Rams at Cardinals game, in a Hail Mary-type situation, Williams rushed 6 and covered with 5 as the Cardinals sent only three receivers into the pattern. The rush, which was composed of three defensive lineman and 2 defensive backs and one hybrid linebacker/defensive back (Mark Barron) caused quarterback Drew Stanton to pull the trigger on his pass a hair too early, and as a result, his receivers didn't get deep enough into the end zone to make a play on the ball and it was intercepted by T.J. McDonald, ending the game.
