#ProDawgs Divisional: Littleton, Peters, Shelton still playing

New, 5 comments

Cory Littleton helped slow down the Cowboys offense to get the Rams a grudge match with the Saints, while Marcus Peters is still making a lot more noise off the field than on.

Cory Littleton had 7 tackles to help the 2nd-seeded Rams eliminate #4 Dallas in the NFC. Los Angeles will visit New Orleans in the NFC title game this Sunday. Win or lose, he still has another game to play, as if the Rams lose, he is on the Pro Bowl roster for his elite special teams play this year.

Rams corner Marcus Peters had a tackle in the win over the Cowboys. Seemingly always in the middle of every confrontation, Peters nearly got into a fight with Amari Cooper after the win — and now a juicy rematch with the Saints awaits, as Peters had some choice words for Payton after New Orleans won in week 9.

Danny Shelton made a stop in the run game in the Patriots’ rout of the Chargers. LA running back Melvin Gordon was held under 2 yards per carry for the game.

Despite the Eagles advancing to the divisional round, Sidney Jones (hamstring) did not make a return to the active roster. He ended up missing the final month of the season when postseason is included, having last played at Dallas in week 14.
