The Los Angeles Rams are 4-2, and have already matched last year’s win total from 2016.
That’s good news and should have fans optimistic.
But success in the National Football League is a moving target, and Sean McVay is finding that out heading into Week 7. The good news is that with Wade Phillips is stabilizing the defense, and special teams, being perhaps the best part of the Rams, has the ceiling for Los Angeles incredibly high.
A win in London against a division opponent like the Cardinals keeps Los Angeles in the mix for the NFC West. The one game resurgence of Arizona needs to remain just that; one game. The Rams need to re-establish the pecking order in the division, and keep the Cards right where they are, and that’s in third place.

Week 7 in London will be a good game. In some ways, it may be the sun beginning to set on one team while another rises.
Carson Palmer will again find Adrian Peterson his best friend on offense. And Peterson will have a good day, but not a great one. Look for McVay to try and get Goff going early, especially with Sammy Watkins, who needs to have a good productive day.
Ultimately, this one may come down to a late score in London.
Look for Goff, Todd Gurley, and Watkins to be better than Palmer, Peterson, and Fitzgerald.
