1. Career day for Gurley

As mentioned before, there were some concerns surrounding the weather conditions heading into this game with the Broncos, meaning the Rams had some sort of idea that Todd Gurley would be heavily relied on even more on offense.

The good news for Los Angeles is that with Gurley’s work ethic, the additional carries didn’t seem like it was going to be that much of an issue since he’s proven on numerous occasions that he’s capable of handling the workload, no matter how much it ended up being.

With that being said, Gurley deserves all of the credit in the world for exposing the weak run defense of the Broncos once again after finishing with a career high 208 rushing yards on 28 carries to go along with two trips into the end zone.

Once again, Gurley continues to show just how valuable of a player he is for Los Angeles on offense, and seeing him record at least one touchdown each game shows just how special of player he truly is.

In fact, with 11 total touchdowns through the first six games, all signs point to Gurley crushing his total (19) from last season when he finished as the runner up to Tom Brady for the MVP award. But most importantly, if Gurley continues to help the Rams be one of the top teams in the NFL with his amazing production, this is what really matters the  most.
