19. Los Angeles Rams (25)
All of a sudden, the Los Angeles Rams are beginning to catch the respect from others across the league following their amazing performance against the Indianapolis Colts to kickoff the new season. Jared Goff was facing heavy pressure when it came to proving he was the right answer for Sean McVay‘s offense, and give the quarterback credit for picking up his first career win to take one less thing off his plate to worry about.
Last season, Los Angeles was the laughing stock of the NFL by only averaging 14 points per game, but the team did everything in their power to make sure that wouldn’t happen again heading into Goff’s second season with the team. Not only did the Rams end up with a steal in this year’s NFL Draft with Cooper Kupp, but the acquisition of Sammy Watkins in preseason seems like it’s going to payoff big time.
Goff has been patiently waiting for better weapons to work with in the passing game, and now that he finally has them, it’s up to the quarterback to take this offense to a whole new level. And if that does happen, the Rams will end up being a team to keep an eye on in the NFC.
