5. Gurley records another 100-yard rushing game
All season, Todd Gurley has been playing at a MVP level for the Los Angeles Rams, and once again, the running back looked unstoppable at times on offense after finishing the game with 106 rushing yards to go along with a score. On top of that, Gurley also caught four passes for 48 yards, so it was clear just how valuable he was to the Rams’ offense against the Cardinals.
Last season, one of the most frustrating things surrounding Los Angeles was Gurley’s inability to record a single 100-yard rushing game, although it wasn’t entirely his fault. Between a poor offensive line along with the Rams trailing in most games, it was difficult for Gurley to be effective in the ground game, but all of that has changed this year.
Thanks to numerous improvements made on the offensive line along with a better receiving corps for Jared Goff to work with, Gurley isn’t facing nearly as much pressure to get the football down the field like he did a year ago. With four 100-yard games at this point in the season, Los Angeles couldn’t have asked for a better start from their beloved running back in Gurley, and it’s made a huge difference on offense.
