RamView: Week 8 – Special Teams

Different names than usual in the highlights on special teams. Dahl had a super day, stuffing a punt return and stopping a kick return inside the 20. Bradley Fletcher may have prevented a TD with a diving tripup of Mike Goodson at the 30 on a kick return late in the 2nd; Goodson had hit full speed and was probably a step from breaking it. Quincy Butler helped the Rams win the field position battle with his blocking on, yes, a fair catch. He picked off a Panther who had a chance to down a punt inside the 5. Donnie Jones got back on track punting, averaging 47.7 a boot and downing two punts inside the 10, including one that had to have left a ball mark when it checked up at the 2 to give Carolina a lousy starting point for their final possession. Jones did outkick his coverage on a bomb Captain Munnerlyn returned 31 yards late in the 3rd, but thanks to contributions from a number of unusual sources, it was still a plus day for special teams.
