Once you get past the 13-10 win against the Dallas Cowboys, the residue of a turnover laden game hits home. The Los Angeles Rams don’t have the luxury of a a game where putting the ball on the turf can be a theme. Look for a course correction this weekend in Oakland.
Los Angeles Rams fans finally have football to talk about with the preseason under way in LA. This week, the team heads up to the East Bay to play the Oakland Raiders. Eyes will begin to focus on a few players and areas of the offense where question marks still remain after beating the Dallas Cowboys. The win aside, turnovers, and a scant view of the first team left a lot to be desired. They begin to fix that as they head up the coast for Week 2 of the NFL Preseason.
Turnovers were a huge issue in the Ram win against the Cowboys. In Oakland this week, they have the chance to turn things around. It’s needed, as the 2017 Rams can’t afford games like the one this past Saturday. Head coach Sean McVay is looking to get more time for quarterback Jared Goff and his new offensive line. That should help the process of getting ball handlers reps to prevent the kind of turnovers we saw last weekend. With so many question surrounding this offense, and with the incredible youth, putting the ball on the turf won’t be a liability LA can overcome.
