Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt is in his eighth season in the NFL, but he has yet to play a postseason game.
That is the case with many Rams players, as the organization has not been in the postseason since 2004, which is the fourth longest drought in the league behind only the Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns.
The Rams are off to their best start in recent years though as they are currently tied for the division lead at 3-1, defeating both of their biggest opponents in the NFC West the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals.
Despite not playing in the postseason, Britt says that he sees the determination in this team to get there, via Gary Klein of the LA Times:
“I have responsibilities and try to be a leader,” he said, adding, “The guys are doing everything correct. Everyone is coming in on off days, looking at film, taking care of their bodies.
“You can tell there’s determination on this team to get to the playoffs.”
The 28-year-old Britt has dealt with a lot of injuries in his career, but he feels he is taking better care of his body this year and it is resulting in him staying healthy:
“I’ve been taking care of my body a lot better,” said Britt, who is earning about $4.5 million in the final year of his contract. “The first two or three years in the NFL, you don’t really know what to do off the field to take care of your body.”
Britt has been a key part of a Rams offense that has struggled to throw the ball down the field. He has been quarterback Case Keenum’s most trusted target on third down, which has been a key to their current three-game win streak.
The Rams will host the 2-2 Bills in Week 5 in their second home game of the season. With the Seahawks having a bye this week Los Angeles can take over sole possession of first place in the division with a win.
