NFL: Sample rates Rams defence as 'the best'

Tight end Drew Sample says the Los Angeles Rams have no weaknesses on defense but his Cincinnati Bengals are ready to meet the challenge and wouldn't want it any other way at Super Bowl LVI.

The Rams are 10/11 -4.5 points in the Spread for next Sunday's clash with the 17/10 Bengals - who are chasing a first Super Bowl title of their 54-year history.

Rams defense a tough unit

Los Angeles' stacked roster includes a fearsome defensive trio of Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Jalen Ramsey.

Defensive end Donald and linebacker Miller have each racked up 16 quarterback pressures in three play-off games, tied for the most in the NFL.

Ex-Denver Broncos star Miller leads the NFL in tackles for loss with 16 since the Rams traded for him in Week 10, while his 46 pressures are fourth-most in the league and his seven sacks are tied for 10th.

Donald has tallied 14 sacks and 93 pressures, while Miller totalled 11.5 sacks and 71 pressures during the course of his season with both the Rams and Broncos.

Leonard Floyd, the other piece on Los Angeles' defensive front, had 10.5 sacks and 65 pressures on the year.

Cornerback Ramsey has played a more versatile role this season, with over 300 snaps each in the slot and on the outside, but was ranked in the top ten by Pro Football Focus for both his slot and outside coverage.

Sample sees no weaknesses

"There are really no weaknesses on their defense," Sample, who could see more targets because of CJ Uzomah's knee injury, told bengals.com.

"We know that's going to be a challenge. We wouldn't want it any other way at this level. We want to go against the best and they definitely are the best."
