Whitworth’s line dominates as Rams power past Cowboys
LOS ANGELES Late in his 13th NFL season, Andrew Whitworth finally got to savour his first playoff victory, albeit only for a minute or two.
After the burly left tackle briefly celebrated on the Coliseum turf with his wife and children Saturday night, he rushed back to the Los Angeles Rams’ locker room and reminded his teammates they’ve only completed a third of their post-season work.
The 37-year-old Whitworth and the Rams both ended lengthy playoff droughts with their 30-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys, and they realized the importance of their achievement without being satisfied by it.
After extending their second straight outstanding season to the NFC championship game, the Rams are determined to seize this chance to go even farther.
“It’s great, but you know what? I feel like this team has potential for more than that,” Whitworth said.
