2. Three more touchdowns for Gurley
Back in the offseason, the thought of Todd Gurley topping last year’s impressive numbers in which he finished with 2,093 yards from scrimmage to go along with 19 total touchdowns seemed impossible. But all of a sudden, when looking at the numbers Gurley has been putting together through seven games, this may not seem so crazy after all.
On numerous occasions, Gurley has proven that he doesn’t necessarily need to have the best game in the rushing department, but as long as he helps the Rams find the end zone when needed this is what really matters the most. Just look at Sunday’s win over the 49ers in which Gurley didn’t even lead the team in rushing yards, but his three touchdowns were what mattered the most on offense.
With three more touchdowns to add to his total, Gurley now has 14 on the season through seven games, making it seem like he’s going to absolutely crush his previous career high from the 2017 season. And to think there were some Rams fans that were ready to give up on Gurley prior to last year after failing to record a single 100-yard rushing game in 2016 before McVay came along to change the entire culture.
