Los Angeles Rams: 4 Grades for Week 8 against the Packers
The Los Angeles Rams beat the Green Bay Packers 29-27 to remain undefeated on the 2018 NFL season. Here are some quick grades on the Week 8 contest.
The Los Angeles Rams escaped a Week 8 game against a determined Green Bay Packers 29-27 to remain perfect on the 2018 NFL season. It was also the first time a win seemed elusive against an opponent LA could not steamroll into submission.
Is this an indication of things to come?
It sure could be.
The Rams faced a riddle of a team with perhaps the best quarterback in the league in Aaron Rodgers (debatable), and no guarantees at the two-minute warning with a defense that seemed poised to give up a big one late.
Instead, Packers running back Ty Montgomery yaks one up and the rest is history. Los Angeles runs out the clock and lives to be undefeated another day.
That day is Week 9 specifically, when they head to the Big Easy for an NFL showdown against the 6-1 New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees, perhaps the best quarterback in the league (debatable).
However you feel, Week 9 is another in a four game gauntlet the Rams will navigate before hitting December. It’s also the second week in a row Los Angeles gets a sure fire Hall of Famer in an opposing quarterback, except in the Saints, the talent is more on par with who the Rams run out out on the field week in and week out.
How did the Rams grade in Week 8? Well it’s not complicated. A win is a win, and despite the score 8-0 is an accomplishment, especially against Rodgers.
