Davis completed a career-high 85.7 percent of his throws, finding running back Benny Cunningham for a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter and tight end Lance Kendricks for a 4-yard score in the fourth.
Davis visits the Chiefs in Week 8.
Monday Night Football was a tale of two halves for
Davis finished 21 of 42 for 236 yards with one score and one interception. With the Rams going for a tying touchdown in the final minute, Davis threw late and cornerback Dontae Johnson returned the pass 20 yards for a touchdown. It was Davis' second pick-six in the last three games.
Davis took a big step back after recording two straight games with 300-plus passing yards and three touchdowns. He was sacked five times and appeared skittish in the pocket.
Davis plays the Seahawks in Week 7.
It's not exactly a Kurt Warner sequel, but the
But those were against Dallas, one of last year's worst teams against the pass, and Philadelphia, one of this year's. This week, the Rams host the 49ers, who are on the other end of the spectrum. Not only are they fourth against the pass, allowing 205.6 yards per game, but they've allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks (tying with the Patriots and Packers).
Some of the quarterbacks they've stifled include Tony Romo and Nick Foles. As good as Davis has been, he's not quite as good as them.
Which doesn't mean you can't add him off waivers. If you need a backup quarterback, he should be a good one. But this week isn't the time to get cute with him.
Jamey Eisenberg isn't thrilled about the crop of quarterbacks available for pickup ahead of Week 6, as he notes in his Waiver-Wire column Tuesday.
If you don't need a quarterback too badly for this week,
Davis lit into a subpar Eagles pass defense, finishing with 32 Fantasy points on 375 passing yards and three touchdowns. This coming after he earned the starting job with another three-touchdown performance against the Cowboys. And, lest you write it off as Davis just taking advantage of poor defenses, only one quarterback has bested his Fantasy point total against the Eagles, while his game against the Cowboys remains the best so far.
Davis might be a flash in the pan, but it is hard to write off these kinds of performances coming on consecutive games. We'll get a real idea of how well Davis can play in Week 6, with the 49ers on the schedule; if he can produce against San Francisco, there might be something here.
