1. Wide receiver trio looked unstoppable
Way before the Rams pulled off another surprise move by acquiring Brandin Cooks from the New England Patriots, the offense was already stacked in the wide receiver department, with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp leading the way following the departure of Sammy Watkins. Without question, the presence of two of the league’s most underrated receivers in Woods and Kupp would make Goff’s job much easier to handle under center, but Los Angeles bringing in a speedster like Cooks had the potential to make this offense that much more dangerous.
Through two games, Goff and the Rams are already seeing just how dangerous this trio of receivers can be after Cooks (seven catches for 159 yards) led the way during the team’s win over the Cardinals. Meanwhile, Woods (six catches for 81 yards) and Kupp (six catches for 63 yards) made some valuable contributions as well, with the rest of the production coming from running backs and tight ends.
If Los Angeles can receive this kind of production from their wideouts on a weekly basis, early signs point to this team eventually finishing on top of the league when it comes to points per game for a second year in a row. The Rams knew they had the potential to be a serious threat on offense, but seeing this quick impact after everyone rested in the preseason is even more reassuring.
