Here’s five takeaways from the Los Angeles Rams during their Week 4 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

If there were any doubters for the Los Angeles Rams heading into Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, it’s safe to say those doubters have quickly become believers.

In what turned out to be one of the wildest endings from Week 4, the Rams made a huge statement by coming up with a 17-13 win on the road over the Cardinals to remain on top of the NFC West with the Seattle Seahawks. With the win, Los Angeles improved to 3-1 on the season, but the most important thing to take away from the win is this team deserves to be in consideration for being a contender in the NFC.

After the defense played a key role in helping the team win seven games in 2015, everybody knew that was most likely going to be the team’s best chance of finding similar success this season. The only thing that seemed to be holding Los Angeles back from reaching the next level was the poor play of the offense, and thanks to a few key players stepping it up in the passing game, the Rams are doing just enough to get by thanks to the help on defense.

While this team still has a long way to go when it comes to proving themselves, it’s difficult not to be excited about this team when looking at how well they performed against the Cardinals. With the team entering Week 5 on a hot streak, here’s a look at five takeaways from Los Angeles during their win over Arizona on Sunday.
