Five underrated Rams that Chicago Bears must contain
The Rams secondary is starting to come together at the right time. That is in part with getting Talib back last week. That is also in part with John Johnson rounding into form.
The second-year safety from Boston College leads the team in interceptions with three. On top of that, he is second on the team in tackles and has two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits and a forced fumble. Johnson has typically been asked to defend running backs and tight ends. In coverage, he is allowing a passer rating of just 88.9.
The Rams rank 6th in success rate on passes to running backs and 12th in success rate on passes to tight ends, which is typically where Johnson is asked to perform. He is a long and rangy safety who can make plays on the ball but also make tackles after the catch.
With Tarik Cohen and Trey Burton being key parts of this offense, the Bears will have to make sure that Johnson is accounted for.
