Even before the start of the 2012 campaign, Rams defensive line coach Mike Waufle challenged his unit to set the NFL’s single-season sacks record. A lofty goal to be sure, but the message obviously was motivational in nature.
As things turned out the Rams might have to “settle” for leading the league in sacks. Entering the final week of the regular season, the Rams are in a tight race with three other teams for the NFL sack title. Denver leads the way with 48, followed by Cincinnati (47) and the Rams and Green Bay with 46 each.
Obviously, finding a way to beat red-hot Seattle is Job 1 on Sunday at CenturyLink Field, but leading the league in sacks is something the defensive line in particular would like to accomplish.
