Sack binge sends LA Rams defense past last season's total

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Rams have put consistent, strong pressure on opposing quarterbacks for the past two months.

Linebacker Clay Matthews realizes sacks and pressures don't win games by themselves, but the Rams' success in pursuing passers is playing a significant role in their pursuit of a playoff spot.

"That's what you've been seeing all year, really," said Matthews, who has eight sacks. "You've got a number of guys who are close to 10 sacks, constantly bringing pressure and making quarterbacks uncomfortable. That's what I think the culture should be."
