1. Rams enter bye week on positive note
When considering this was a team that was supposed to be going through a rebuilding season during their first year with Sean McVay as head coach, the Los Angeles Rams couldn’t have asked for a better record at 5-2 heading into their bye week. In fact, the Rams have already topped their win total from a year ago, and our in good position to continue competing for the NFC West title, which seemed like a complete long shot a few months ago.
What McVay has accomplished already in such a short period of time is beyond amazing for Los Angeles, and to see them head into their bye week with back-to-back wins over the Jacksonville Jaguars and Arizona Cardinals will payoff big time. The Seattle Seahawks already own the tiebreaker at the moment over the Rams thanks to their win a few weeks back, so every win for McVay and company is going to be extremely important.
Once Los Angeles returns from the bye, McVay’s squad will prepare for a difficult matchup on the road against the New York Giants. And even though this matchup seems like it would benefit the Rams on paper, everyone knows the Giants are always capable of pulling the upset off.
