2. Better play on defense during first three quarters
Despite how dominant the Rams look on defense since their line of Donald and Suh will make any quarterback sweat over the thought of them getting hit, the unit hasn’t exactly gotten off to the best of starts at times during the regular season. It was one thing to allow Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings get off to a hot start in Week 4 since the offense is loaded with talent to work with, but their play last Sunday against the Seahawks was a little surprising.
Yes, Russell Wilson has been viewed as a strong MVP candidate on numerous occasions throughout his career when looking at how he can single-handedly take over games sometimes, but this year has been different. Instead of Wilson and the Seahawks looking like a strong Super Bowl contender, the team seems to be going through a little bit of rebuilding on their end.
So when Seattle already put up 31 points in Week 5 before the start of the fourth quarter could even roll around, it was a little concerning to see on the end of Los Angeles. But just like the week before, the Rams’ defense figured out a way to get their act together in the fourth quarter when it mattered the most to help secure the win.
