Los Angeles Rams lead NFL in points heading into Week 4


Through three games of the NFL 2017 season, the Los Angeles Rams lead the entire NFL with 107 points.

Last year, the Los Angeles Rams were one of the biggest laughing stocks of the NFL when it came to offense after the unit ranked dead last in the league by only averaging 14 points per game, which is one of the main reasons why Sean McVay was hired as head coach in the offseason. Based off his success from over the years as offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins, the Rams made McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history with the hope he would eventually be able to do the same with Jared Goff and company.

It’s only been three games, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out just how effective McVay’s offense has already been through the first three games, even if two of those contests happened to come against the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers. And while the potential for McVay to improve this offense right away was certainly there, nobody could have predicted to see Los Angeles pull off the amazing accomplishment of scoring the most points heading into Week 4.

That’s right, the Rams of all teams currently lead the league with 107 points through three games so far, which is safe to say that nobody expected to happen after all of the struggles the unit dealt with a year ago. Of course, the main question surrounding this team heading into this weekend’s game against the Dallas Cowboys is whether Los Angeles can continue this surprise success on offense while facing the defending NFC East champions.

Between Goff benefitting from an improved receiving corps to Todd Gurley returning to the dominant form from his rookie year, fans have every reason in the world to be thrilled over the direction this offense is heading under McVay. And assuming Wade Phillips can get back on track to make this a more balanced team, the Rams may even find themselves in position to make a playoff run later in the year, which would simply be awesome.
