Let’s be honest, it’s fun to talk about the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers in this mythical battle for LA, but come on.
If the Chargers go out and beat the Rams by 35 points or better, then maybe. But odds are, whoever wins this game in Week 3 gets some bragging rights for fans on social media and that’s it.
That said, both franchises are being kicked around as Super Bowl favorites, both teams are potentially best in their respective divisions, although fans in Kansas City might disagree, and both will share a stadium home come 2020.
Rams versus Chargers will be a solid game, especially for the Rams who really haven’t played a team who could have or should have beaten them.
That simply won’t be the case in Week 3.
The best potential storyline to keep an eye on is the running backs. Both Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon are worth the price of admission, and might ultimately be a deciding factor come Sunday afternoon.
Beyond that, the battle of Los Angeles has probably already been won.
That easy narrative aside, some honestly believe this is a preview for the Super Bowl, and it still may be.
Just don’t bank on it.
