The Los Angeles Rams head to Dallas with a lot of momentum, and a chance to prove they are more than a nice story.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has another first in a season of what will be 16 of them. McVay leads his up and coming Rams into Dallas for a Week 4 matchup of two teams trending up in this young NFL season.

LA, who is 2-1 thus far, looks to have found a star in the making in second year quarterback Jared Goff. He’ll make only his 11th start tomorrow against a Cowboys team that many think are a Super Bowl contender. But after three games in 2017, the Rams aren’t looking anything less than a contender in the NFC West themselves.

For Los Angeles, the consensus seems to be that McVay has his young team playing ahead where most picked them to be. Heading into this season, and certainly before Goff looked to show some flashes in the preseason, it wasn’t illogical to see the Rams picked anywhere from 4-12 to something short of .500.

But three games in, and LA is becoming something of media curiosity.

Can they keep it up?

Los Angeles has scored 46 points in one game, 20 in another, and just last week, hung 41 on the 49ers before hanging on for a late win.

It’s hard to imagine the Rams posting a big number like that on the Cowboys, but in a season where McVay has his team, specifically his offense overachieving, anything is possible.

A win tomorrow would move LA to 3-1.

An optimistic 3-1 where everything suddenly seems possible for the Rams in Los Angeles.
