The Los Angeles Rams get a chance to go 3-0 against the AFC West when they travel to Denver for a Week 6 matchup against the Broncos. So far in 2018, LA has beaten the Raiders 33-13, the Chargers 35-23 and now get a shot against their respective division foe.
The Rams are taking a few liabilities with them against their Week 6 opponents.
First, they have key injuries with players like kicker Greg Zuerlein, defensive back Aqib Talib, and receivers Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks (as of this posting, LA is waiting on the status for both Kupp and Cooks for Week 6). Of note, Marcus Peters is still nursing a sore calf and has been less than efficient in the Rams defensive backfield.
Therefore it may come down to the Rams and a solid running game. If LA does end up playing at a snowy Denver, running back Todd Gurley may end up a critical part of the game plan, as a strong running game is a big part of any game featuring snow.
the Los Angeles Rams getting to 6-0 isn’t a big stretch. On paper, the Rams are light years better than a Broncos team still trying to find some magic from their 2015 Super Bowl win.
