3. Rams record shutout on defense

Between David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald, one would think that Arizona would have been able to at least put up some point during Sunday’s contest against Los Angeles, even if their defense is already showing signs of being one of the best in the league. However, the Rams deserve plenty of credit on defense for coming through in a big way by recording their first shutout of the 2018 season, giving the unit all sorts of confidence.

Of course, Los Angeles didn’t exactly need a confidence boost since there’s a reason why expectations were so high for the unit in the offseason, but it’s always great to see them shine like they did in Week 2. Shutouts don’t always come easy when it comes to the NFL, and if the Rams were able to do this against a team like the Cardinals, the rest of the league better be on lookout.

Also, it needs to be pointed out how Los Angeles was an absolute nightmare for Sam Bradford after the former top pick was limited to just 90 passing yards (17 of 27) with an interception. For a quarterback making $20 million, it’s embarrassing to think how Bradford will enter Week 3 still in search of that first touchdown pass.
