Through six games of the 2018 NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams are unbeaten, look unbeatable, and are the class of both the NFC West and the National Football League.
For fans in LA, all is good as the home team heads to San Francisco for a renewal of a bitter rivalry with the 49ers.
Don’t be fooled, the 1-5 Niners don’t have a franchise type quarterback with C.J. Beathard at the controls, but after a near upset on Monday Night Football against the Packers, anything is possible.
The Rams are in the midst of a remarkable season. Goff looks to be a quarterback getting better each week, and running back Todd Gurley may be on track for a league MVP award. Head coach Sean McVay continues to have all the answers despite a defense who isn’t yet as previously advertised.
Heading into Week 7 has some injury concerns as receiver Cooper Kupp looks to be out for a while. If anything looks to be a hurdle in the weeks ahead, it’s likely injuries and a defense opponents can both throw on and run on.
The 49ers are a team the Rams should beat. Last season the two teams split the season series with LA winning in San Francisco in Week 3 and the Niners winning in Los Angeles in Week 17.
All that aside, the better team is the Rams. But in this series that doesn’t always matter much.
