Whit­worth’s line dom­i­nates as Rams power past Cow­boys

Medicine Hat News - - SPORTS - GREG BEACHAM

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.
