Here are three reasons why the Los Angeles Rams were one of the big winners from Week 3 after their victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

For the third week in a row, the Los Angeles Rams managed to win a game by double-digits after taking down the Los Angeles Chargers 35-23, although this turned out to be a game in which the injury bug finally caught up with the defending NFC West champions. Both Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib were forced to leave Sunday’s game with injuries that are expected to keep them out for at least a couple of weeks, but to keep the focus on being positive, there were plenty of key takeaways for the Rams from this contest as well.

Once again, putting points up on the board continues to be a non-issue for the Rams since they had little trouble putting up 35 against a Chargers team that many consider to have a pretty solid defense, although things would have been much different with a healthy Joey Bosa. Still, when looking at how easy it seemed for the Rams to move the football down the field, the offense continues to show why there was so much hype in the offseason, and the scary thing to consider is this team is only going to get better each week with experience.
