The Los Angeles Rams are headed to the Antworten

Super Bowl despite one of the worst games of Todd Gurley’s career.The star running back carried the ball just four times for 10 yards Sunday , caught one pass for 3 yards and let a couple of passes slip through his hands — one of which led to an interception that set up a New Orleans Saints‘ field goal.Gurley’s performance in the NFC championship game became an afterthought when the Rams rallied from an early 13-0 deficit to beat the Saints 26-23 in overtime.Still, the lack of playing time led to speculation that Gurley might be injured.Coach Sean McVay said it was just “the flow of the game.”“What personifies Todd is this is an MVP-caliber player and he just kept fighting, he kept supporting his teammates,” McVay said. “I thought they did a good job as a whole slowing down our run game and we kind of just had to grind some things out today. But Todd is a special player and I couldn’t be more impressed with the way he handled himself.”It was the fewest carries in Gurley’s four-year career. The only time he rushed for fewer yards was his very first game with the Rams, when the franchise was still in St. Louis. He carried six times for 9 yards in the 2015 season opener against Pittsburgh.McVay was quick to point out Gurley’s only significant contribution of the game — a 6-yard touchdown run with 23 seconds left in the first half that cut the Saints’ lead to 13-10.“He’s going to have an instrumental role in our game against whoever we play,” the coach said. “He ended up making a big-time play.”Gurley ranked third in the league in rushing this season Kendall Sheffield Jersey , finishing with 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns. He had six 100-yard games during the regular season and added a 115-yard performance in last week’s 30-22 victory over Dallas in the divisional round.But the NFL’s highest-paid running back got only five touches in biggest game of the season. C.J. Anderson wound up carrying the load out of the backfield, rushing 16 times for 44 yards.After Greg Zuerlein booted a 57-yard field goal in overtime to win the game, Gurley joined the celebration.“We’re going to the Super Bowl,” he screamed on the field. “Let’s go! Lets’go!” JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars made another move to revamp their running backs room by selecting Temple’s Ryquell Armstead in the fifth round of the NFL draft.The Jaguars chose the 5-foot-11 , 215-pound Armstead with the second pick in the round Saturday, No. 140 overall.Armstead ran for 2,812 yards and 34 touchdowns in four years with the Owls. He had 1,098 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns in 10 games as a senior in 2018. He covered the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds at the NFL Combine, fairly quick for bigger back.He joins a completely retooled position group in Jacksonville, which fired running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley and parted ways with T.J. Yeldon Qadree Ollison Jersey , Carlos Hyde and Corey Grant after last season.The Jaguars are hoping the changes help starter Leonard Fournette become a better pro. They hired 64-year-old Terry Robiskie, who, like Fournette, was born and raised in New Orleans and attended LSU, as running backs coach. They also signed veteran Alfred Blue (another LSU alum) to be Fournette’s backup and added veteran Benny Cunningham.No one would be surprised to see Armstead replace Fournette in the starting lineup one day, either.Fournette was arrested earlier this month for driving with a suspended license Marquise Brown Jersey , his latest off-the-field issue. The fourth overall pick in the 2017 draft was injured, suspended and on the bench in crunch time last season. He also was fined, criticized and admittedly not in ideal shape late in the year.Most telling, the Jaguars voided the remaining guarantees in Fournette’s four-year rookie contract worth $27.1 million. The team made the move following Fournette’s weeklong suspension in late November for instigating a fight against Buffalo.Fournette has since challenged the decision, which could cost him up to $7.1 million.Fournette also drew the ire of personnel chief Tom Coughlin when he and Yeldon spent most of the season finale — a 20-3 loss at Houston — on the bench and disengaged from coaches and teammates.Coughlin ripped both players for being “disrespectful” and “selfish.”Fournette had a lengthy meeting with Coughlin and coach Doug Marrone after the season in hopes of clearing the air and staring anew.
