Bryce Perkins completed 5-of-10 passes for 64 yards in Los Angeles' Week 11, 27-20 loss to the Saints, adding five carries for 39 yards.Coming in to relieve Matthew Stafford in the third quarter, Perkins' 23-yard run on his second dropback matched a Rams season-high for rushing yardage on a single play. Los Angeles tried to use him as a play-action boot threat, but eventually had to resort to dropping back to pass as time ran out. Perkins took three sacks against a depleted Saints defensive line that still managed to have its way with Los Angeles' backups on the offensive line. If Perkins starts next week -- it's an open question -- he's got some rushing upside. The Chiefs could threaten to game-script the reeling Rams and make it irrelevant.
