Even though it was closer than expected, the Los Angeles Rams were able to come through when it mattered the most on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers during their 29-27 win to improve to 8-0 on the season. Leading up to the contest, the Rams knew the Packers would most likely be their toughest challenge to date, and Sean McVay has to be pleased once again over how his team looked when facing a top contender in the NFC.
Whether it was Todd Gurley extending his impressive touchdown streak or simply the fact that Los Angeles caught a break towards the end of the game when Ty Montgomery fumbled a kickoff that he should have taken a knee on in the end zone, there was plenty to takeaway from this win.

Just like most games, there were certainly numerous areas in which Los Angeles could certainly improve on before their next showdown on the road in what should be a tough game against the New Orleans Saints. For now, let’s keep the attention focused on the Rams most recent victory over the Packers, and reasons why they should be viewed as one of the winners from Week 8 since the team certainly gave fans plenty to talk about.
