After a big Week 6 win at Jacksonville, the Los Angeles Rams head to London for an NFC West “home game” with the Cardinals. Who’s up and who’s down after the 27-17 win? We take a long look at what’s working and what’s not in LA.
It was a good win for the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. LA beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-17 in a game that began fast, but was ultimately decided by defense and special teams. The Rams got two monster plays by kick returner Pharoh Cooper and special teams player Malcolm Brown, who accounted for two of the team’s three touchdowns.
As a matter of form, kicker Greg Zuerlein would add two field goals making the road trip to Jacksonville a ‘special teams’ weekend.
The Rams are now 3-0 on the road and heading to London for a game with the Arizona Cardinals. That game is a “home game” for the Rams and crucial as LA looks to keep pace in the NFC West.
So, after a big Week 6 win at Jacksonville, who and what is working for the Rams? Well, that depends. If you’re in the camp of “a win’s a win,” then you slept well.
But, over two weeks, LA’s offense is sputtering for a grand total of two touchdowns.
Also, special teams continue to excel.
Be it punter Johnny Hekker or Zuerlein, or like yesterday, Cooper or Brown, who took a blocked punt to the house, LA is in a good place with one area that can and has had a positive effect for the Rams.
Especially when the Los Angeles offense hasn’t found the end zone much these last few weeks.
