Andrew Whitworth's 40 time is only getting better for Rams
FILE - Los Angeles Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth (77) walks back to the locker room after the team defeats the Detroit Lions in an NFL football game Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021, in Inglewood, Calif. Age is a funny thing in the NFL, where many players are considered “over the hill” in their 30s. And even younger, depending on the position you play. Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth turns 40 in five weeks — on Dec. 12, fittingly an NFL Sunday. And Los Angeles is off that day with a Monday night game at Arizona, so Whitworth can celebrate with a few naps and then get to bed early.

Whitworth will make history on Monday, Dec. 13, 2021 against the Arizona Cardinals as the first player in NFL history to start a game at his position at 40 years old. Whitworth, who celebrates his birthday Sunday, has been the cornerstone of Los Angeles’ offense during McVay’s half-decade in charge. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)
