The Los Angeles Rams look to have an interesting start to 2018. Here are 4 locks to take to the bank.

Yeah, yeah, the Los Angeles Rams look to be penciled in for a Super Bowl date with the New England Patriots, or whatever AFC patsy the elite NFL media may toss up for the clearly better NFC. Thing is, that entry from LA, who has built the kind of team that some have already labeled a dynasty in the making, has a lot of work to do in September.

So not so fast.

I concede the Rams will be very good, maybe better than 11-5, maybe they make a deep run in the playoffs.

Maybe even a conference championship appearance.
Maybe a Super Bowl.

That’s getting way out in front of the reality that they will play 16 games over 17 weeks before anything is decided, then again fans don’t always care much about the process of such things.

They should.

Without question, Aaron Donald finding a pathway back to Los Angeles is huge. He’ll likely help make the Rams defense best in the league along with fellow D-lineman Ndamukong Suh.

Sounds good.

That said, the Rams will look for a repeat with an offense that racked up a ton of points in 2017. Meaning third year quarterback Jared Goff has to continue the get better. Any step back, and LA falls into a pool of NFC hopefuls, and blows up the plan in LA.

Look for the Rams to own the NFC West if only because it’s in something of a rebuild mode. San Francisco, Arizona, and Seattle will battle for everything else but the top spot.

That’s the only predictable part of the season in Los Angeles.
