The month of September had the Los Angeles Rams go 4-0 to begin their 2018 campaign. Here is how four grades shake out.
With the month of September in the rear view mirror and a 4-0 record under their belt, the Los Angeles Rams will look forward to an October that presents some interesting scenarios. Like maybe opening their 2018 season with a shot at 8-0.
Sure, why not 8-0?
If they get there one reason will be because of a tone set in the first month of the season where, even despite some injuries, opposing teams aren’t always knowing what they will get on offense, defense, or special teams.
The Rams are solid up and down the roster, except in the kicking game where LA will have to explore some options.
Los Angeles has found the “sweet spot.” Head coach Sean McVay continues to turn all the right screws, and defensive coordinators Wade Phillips is capable of making adjustments even in the face of significant injuries.
Which is the only thing that could derail the Rams.
Bottom line, all the systems look to be firing as they need be for LA to find success and wins. The offense hasn’t skipped a beat and quarterback Jared Goff looks to have turned the corner.
Running back Todd Gurley has picked up where he left off, and the defense, though banged up, is more than capable.
Entering October, the Rams look better positioned than anyone to get to and maybe win a championship.
