Woods caught five of 10 targets for 70 yards and added one five-yard carry during Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Patriots.
Woods was one of two Rams players to receive double-digit targets, but he was only able to catch half of the balls thrown his way. He also struggled to make big plays, as his longest gain went for just 18 yards. It was still an improvement over his performance against the Saints in the NFC Championship Game, but Woods couldn't do enough to help his team to a better offensive performance. The wideout was coming off a breakout regular season in which he totaled 86 receptions for 1,219 yards and six touchdowns.
Woods saw his usual robust workload in terms of targets, but he wasn't anywhere near as successful in racking up his customary production in receiving yardage. Woods did see a chance for a big gain go by the wayside when Jared Goff failed to put the ball ahead of him on a slant in the second half, which kept the play to a more modest gain when Woods lost his balance after the catch. Nevertheless, the sure-handed veteran will undoubtedly be an integral part of the Rams' plan of attack once again in the Super Bowl in two weeks' time against either the Patriots or Chiefs.
Woods hauled in six of eight targets, collecting 69 receiving yards during Saturday's 30-22 win against the Cowboys.
Woods was the Rams' most reliable pass-catcher throughout the regular season, putting up 14 consecutive showings with five receptions or 70 receiving yards between Weeks 2 and 16 before being held to two catches for 24 yards in the finale against San Francisco. He got back to his typical form in the divisional round against Dallas' No. 13 pass defense, garnering a team-high eight targets and pacing the Rams in receiving output for the eighth time this season. Woods figures to be an intriguing DFS play in the NFC championship against either the Saints or Eagles, the NFL's 32nd and 31st-ranked teams in terms of receiving yards allowed to opposing wideouts.
Woods caught two of his three targets for 24 yards during Sunday's regular-season finale against the 49ers. He also rushed once for one yard.
Woods exited the game in the second half after taking a hard hit from 49ers safety Antone Exum and never returned, but thankfully the receiver returned to the sidelines and doesn't seem to be dealing with a significant injury. With the regular season in the books, Woods can hang his hat on easily his most productive season as a pro in which he racked up career highs across the board with 86 receptions for 1,219 yards and six scores. Utilized as a rusher on select plays as well, Woods gained 157 yards and a score on 19 carries. The Pro Bowl snub now gets plenty of time to rest up given the Rams' first-round bye in the postseason.
Woods paced the Rams' pass catchers in both receptions and receiving yardage while scoring through both the ground and air. He got his day off to a rousing start when he answered an early Cardinals field goal with a four-yard rushing touchdown, a play he bookended by tallying Los Angeles' final points of the day on a 39-yard scoring grab in the fourth quarter. The veteran wideout could be one of several of the team's skill players that takes a seat or plays sparingly against the 49ers in Week 17, considering the Rams are now officially out of the running for the No. 1 seed in the NFC in the wake of the Saints' win over the Steelers on Sunday.
