C+. The St Louis Rams are obviously missing the presence of Alec Ogletree already, but they still had a decent game without him. James Laurinaitus stepped it up big time with eight tackles and the first interception Aaron Rodgers had thrown at home since 2012. Akeem Ayers had a quite day, but Mark Barron stepped it up by playing the linebacker role and gaining five tackles himself. this isn’t the same performance we are used to, but given the circumstances, it’s completely workable. It would be nice to see Darren Bates get more involved as well, as he only accounted for a single tackle on the day. It is very unfortunate that the majority of the passes Rodgers threw was to running backs and the tight ends. This grade is a borderline B-, could go either way.. LB. St Louis Rams. LINE BACKERS
