The Los Angeles Rams keep winning, as they knock of the Houston Texans 33-7 in the Coliseum.
Things may have started slow, but the Los Angeles Rams had the Houston Texans on the mat long before the game got to the fourth quarter. In a flurry of scoring, LA got to the beginning of the last period of play with a 30-7 lead, and looked for all the world as the best team in the NFC West, ultimately winning 33-7.
Hey, at 7-2, if you want to make an argument for one of the best teams in the conference, feel free.
In what was still a sparsely filled Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Rams offense looked sluggish. After what seems like the better part of the 2017 season on the road, LA looked travel weary, as kicker Greg Zuerlein accounted for much of first half scoring.
Running back Todd Gurley, who looked to be bottled up by a good Texans run defense until late in the fourth, was not an issue for Los Angeles, as quarterback Jared Goff looked smooth and in command, making wide receiver Robert Woods his preferred pass catcher on Sunday afternoon, Goff, who had another strong day, went 25-37 for for 355 yards and three touchdowns, finding Woods for 8 catches and two TD’s. Gurley, who was grinding on this day, finished with 68 yards on 11 carries.
The Rams got contributions from their offense, special teams, and a defense that gave up only an easy, walk-in touchdown that never had the Texans anything other than a participant.
If Los Angeles, who had lost to Washington 27-20 and Seattle 16-10 in the Coliseum, has any issues with playing at home, it didn’t show today. The Rams are as complete as any team in the National Football League.
The Rams are back on the road in Week 11, as they take a 7-2 record to Minneapolis for a game against the Vikings.
