Littleton recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed across 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. Littleton continues to be a driving force on the Rams' defense, as his season-tackle count climbs to 84 -- third most in the league. The second-year man was once again on the field for 100 percent of the Rams' defensive snaps Sunday, a recurring trend this season that warrants him an ideal IDP candidate.
Littleton recorded just three solo tackles during Sunday's 34-0 win over Arizona. This was a disappointing follow-up to Littleton's 13-tackle showing in Week 1. However, it probably should be chalked up to Arizona laying an egg offensively more than anything. With Mark Barron (ankle) sidelined, Littleton called the plays for the Los Angeles defense again Sunday, and he sets up to have a rebound showing in Week 3 against the Chargers -- especially if Barron is unable to suit up or is limited.
Littleton played 53 of 64 defensive snaps and recorded eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 34-13 loss to San Francisco. After a strong Week 16 performance, Littleton started again against the 49ers with Mark Barron inactive and nursing an injured Achilles. It's unclear if Barron will be ready to return for Saturday's playoff game against Atlanta, but Littleton has proven competent at filling in when needed. It's definitely worth noting that without a switch to the outside, Littleton's long-term outlook is bleak with fellow inside linebackers Barron and Alec Ogletree both under contract for the 2018 campaign.
