The LA Rams defense registered 48 quarterback sacks in 2017, but that number fell to 41 in 2018. The team rebounded to 50 quarterback sacks in 2019. Finally, in 2020, the Rams landed in 2nd place in the NFL with 53 quarterback sacks. So the question becomes: Can the LA Rams defense top 53 quarterback sacks in 2021?
Nobody expected the Rams to do well in 2020. After all, the team had lost a significant part of their pass rushers from 2019. The team lost Clay Matthews, Dante Fowler Jr., Cory Littleton, Bryce Hager, Eric Weddle, and Nickell Robey Coleman simultaneously.
