Sometimes when things are going astonishingly well, the person who sees the glass half empty waits for gravity. Meaning, it’s not illogical to think that the Rams are due to have an equalizing dose of misfortune at some point this season.
But you just don’t get that feel with this team, and against Houston, Los Angeles will again have better personnel on both sides of the ball.
Especially without rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.
The sense is that the Rams are riding a crest of momentum that has the offense and Jared Goff getting better each week. They aren’t seeing ANY drop off of ANY kind on that side of the football. Also, LA fans and the rest of the NFL world is seeing the Coach Of The Year In Sean McVay guide maybe two other MVP candidates.
It’s a wealth of good fortune for a team who’s been on the other side of that for what seems like forever.
It continues to go well this week against Houston.
The Rams may have two MVP candidates in Gurley and Goff, although for Goff, that may be a lofty consideration.
But not for Gurley.
Los Angeles may be a year early in being this good this soon. If the eyeball test has shown us anything, it’s that the NFC West is between two teams in the Rams and Seahawks.
LA will show once again, this time against the Texans, that it’s no illusion.
The Los Angeles Rams are just that good.
