2. Los Angeles Rams (4)
Any concern over the Los Angeles Rams feeling rusty following their bye week disappeared early on against the New York Giants when seeing how Sean McVay’s squad quickly jumped out to a 24-7 lead by the middle of the second quarter. Sure, the Giants haven’t been anything to brag about this year since they only have recorded one win in eight games, but the last thing the Rams wanted to deal with was become the victims of a trap game after traveling across the country.
Instead, Los Angeles picked up right where they left off before the bye after putting up 51 points on New York to improve their record to 6-2 on the season. While Todd Gurley came up big on offense once again after earning two trips into the end zone, it was Jared Goff that shined the most on offense after having a career day against the Giants.
Not only did Goff complete 14 of 22 passes for 311 yards, but the former No. 1 pick recorded four touchdown passes as well. In case there were still concerns from anyone over the quarterback’s ability to run this offense for Los Angeles, let’s just say the team made the right decision by trading up for Goff in 2016.
