After a lengthy debate on whether to cancel the entire 2020 season due to the coronavirus outbreak leading to players opting-out voluntarily or being high risk. But now we are grateful to the NFL and franchise owners for being adamant about seeing the season happen by coming up with contingency plans that are proving to be extremely useful.
As we head to the NFL Week 2, teams are strategizing following their performance during Week 1, and we must agree that the 2020 season will be fantastic despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
NFL Week 1 was favorable to the Los Angeles Rams after they defeated the Dallas Cowboys as they hosted them in their new stadium. Both of the teams are considered to have the league’s most high-powered offenses.
Cowboys lead 14-13 into halftime, but the Rams emerged victorious after maintaining constant pressure on Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and held running back Ezekiel Elliot under 100 yards rushing.
Rams scored only 20 points with their Quarterback Jared Goff relying on wide receivers Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, and Malcolm Brown ran for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns.
While the Rams prepare for a showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, they continued signing their critical players into long-term contracts.
In 2017, Woods joined the Los Angeles Rams as a free agent in signing a 5-year, $34 Million contracts, which included $10 million in guarantees from the Buffalo Bills, who drafted him in 2010.
Wide Receiver Robert Woods Agreed to 4-Year Extension, $65 Million Deal with Los Angeles Rams, making him the third player to be offered a contract extension in 16 days, behind wide receiver Cooper Kupp, cornerback Jalen Ramsey. The wide receiver contract was set to expire at the end of the 2021 season.
Wood’s deal makes him the 4th highest paid Ram behind defensive lineman Aaron Donald, quarterback Jared Goff, and cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
The 28-year-old Woods first season with the Rams, he posted a career-high 781 yards and had back-to-back 1000-yard receiving seasons in 2018 and 2019. He is one player who knows the game so well and always helps in Rams wins.
Wood’s performance in the NFL Week 1 was tremendous in helping his team win over the Dallas Cowboys, as he caught 6-passes for 105 yards. He has started this season strongly, and we can’t wait to see how he ends this season.
Undoubtedly, the Rams investment in Robert Woods is a good one following his career-high 90 catches for 1134 yards and 2-touchdowns in last season. He intends to continue speaking through his play in the field every time rather than talking too much.
Rams are the favorites to win against hosts the Philadelphia Eagles at the Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, in the NFL Week 2. And, wide receiver Robert Woods will prove why he is worthy of the contract extension, $65 Million.
Remember to keep a distance, wear a mask, and sanitize your hands whenever you go out.
