I had been quick to pick against the Rams in Weeks 3 and 4. I believed Los Angeles would get caught looking ahead to Minnesota when they played the Los Angeles Chargers, and I thought a solid defense would stifle Goff and his defense.
Fact is, I’ve been wrong.
The Rams are as close to what fans have gotten used to when they watched the New England Patriots. In fact, LA has surpassed the Pats and the “Patriots Way.” No longer is an obedience required to win. McVay has shown that good football players produce good football, no matter the stress level, or lack there of.
Hence, the Rams win and now win a lot.
Week 4 will begin just as Week 3 ended for LA. Minnesota may be a solid football team and maybe a fluke against the Bills will have the Vikings very competitive Thursday night.
Unfortunately “very competitive” won’t be good enough.
The Vikings will be overmatched in Week 4. Cousins will be what Redskins fans remember, and fans in the Coliseum will get a third straight win in three straight weeks.
Yes, the Rams ARE that good. Thursday night in front of a national TV audience, and in a stand alone game, Los Angeles stakes a claim to being the best in football.
It won’t be close.
