The Rams are set to play the Seattle Seahawks this Saturday in hopes of extending their season on the way to a Lombardi Trophy. A big part of their success this year has been the defense which has arguably been the best in the NFL. While it was a team effort in itself, two Rams have stood out and were recognized for their great seasons.

Donald who is now a six-time First-Team All-Pro was unanimously selected, along with Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, after receiving all 50 votes for his position.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Donald was recognized as he has been a force to be reckoned with for years. This year he finished the season tied for second in sacks (13.5), 45 total tackles, 14 tackles for a loss of yardage, 27 Qb hits, and 4 forced fumbles. It’s been a busy year for the 29-ear old defensive tackle who continues to find ways to produce even while being double or triple-teamed.
The Rams will hope to see more of this kind of production on Saturday against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
