The Los Angeles Rams have an opportunity to improve to 6-0 against the Denver Broncos, checking off some unique boxes in the process.
Sure, the smart money is on the 5-0 Los Angeles Rams to beat the 2-3 Denver Broncos in Week 6. Denver could win of course, but for the record a Broncos ‘W’ wouldn’t be akin to David versus Goliath, or the New York Giants against anyone.
-It’s potentially a third road win.
-It’s potentially a third win against the AFC West.
-It’s a potentially a second consecutive win at a tough road crowd in cold and snow.
Hey, that means something.
The Rams could pull off a trifecta of sorts with a win in Week 6. As remarkably average as the Broncos look to be, a win at Denver shouldn’t be overlooked despite their record. For Los Angeles to be a contender beyond their 5-0 record, wins like the one they could get on Sunday is something NFL experts will take notice of.
Despite all, a win in Seattle is still important, and a win in Denver still means something. A win in bad weather means the Rams can win anywhere, in any environment, in any kind of weather.
Hey, that really means something.
Head coach Sean McVay isn’t worried about the conditions forecasted for Sunday. Seeing as both teams are playing in something as equalizing as cold and snow, his approach is what you’d expect from a guy who keeps pushing all the right buttons.
"“Not really. I think, really, they’ve got to play in that as well. You’ve got to adjust. There’s a couple different things just menu-wise with your play selection that you want to be aware of, but it’s just like anything else.”"
Should the Rams beat the Broncos and improve to 6-0, expectations will continue to climb as they head to a Week 7 NFC West game against their rival San Francisco 49ers. Since returning to Los Angeles, the Rams are 1-3 against their California rival.
