Quarterback Derek Carr leads an offense that features running back Josh Jacobs — the NFL’s leading rusher — and receivers Davante Adams and Mack Hollins. Carr has passed for 20 touchdowns, with eight interceptions. In Sunday’s 27-20 victory over the Chargers, Carr passed for two touchdowns, with an interception.

Jacobs has rushed for 1,303 yards, including 144 against the Chargers. He has scored 10 touchdowns, and also has 42 receptions. Adams has 79 catches for 1,176 yards and is tied for the league lead with 12 touchdowns receiving. He has produced more than 125 yards receiving in four of the last five games. Hollins has 45 catches, three for scores.

Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey has given up several touchdown passes but always looks forward to matchups against star receivers such as Adams. The Rams again will be without defensive lineman Aaron Donald, who remains sidelined because of a high ankle sprain.

Lineman Michael Hoecht has proved valuable as an edge rusher. Hoecht had two sacks and forced a fumble against the Seahawks. Cornerback Troy Hill is questionable and cornerback David Long is out because of groin injuries. Rookies Derion Kendrick and Cobie Durant could start.
