Sunday, September 11, 2011, 7:28 PM
There were a lot of questions coming into this game about how Juan Castillo would use Nnamdi Asomugha and the Eagles cornerbacks.

The Rams' left defensive end had 8.5 sacks last year, a respectable number, but one that doesn't tell the whole story. According to Football Outsiders, he... Read more
