2. Rams overcame 10-0 deficit

Critics quickly pointed out Jared Goff‘s record when the Rams were trailing by double-digits in games, but also keep in mind a good amount of those games were from the disastrous Jeff Fisher era that took place during the quarterback’s rookie season. Then again, even when Los Angeles was trailing at times throughout the 2018 season, what the team experienced on Sunday was a completely different feeling since they weren’t used to trailing by double-digits, especially early on in games.

Without question, the Rams deserve a ton of credit for keeping their cool, and not hitting the panic button when they were approaching halftime down 10-0 since the momentum came through at the perfect time. Right after Mark Barron was able to record a safety on Aaron Jones, Los Angeles immediately came right back, and drove 72 yards that was topped off with a one-yard touchdown catch by Josh Reynolds, although the two-point conversion came up just short.

Eventually, the Rams would go on to take a lead in the middle of the third quarter before some back-and-forth scoring would finish with Los Angeles hanging on for the 29-27 win. This whole trailing by double-digits may have been a new experience for the Rams, but once again, watching them overcome this obstacle shows how talented this team truly is.
