Scott Seals A Win

Nick Scott has quietly developed into a pretty good safety for the LA Rams. The former Penn State special teams standout picked off Geno Smith late in the fourth quarter to ice a 26-17 Rams win in Seattle.

Blake Gillikin quietly had one of the best days a punter has had in the NFL in over two decades. The second-year man became the first punter since at least 2000 to have three punts of over 53 yards downed inside the three-yard line.
