4. Rams have won four of five by single-digits
As impressive as it’s been to see the Rams continue to be undefeated at the beginning of November, there have been concerns ever since they won each of their first three games by double-digits. It sounds crazy to even think about when looking at how dominant Los Angeles has appeared at times, but four of their last five wins have come by single-digits, including this past weekend against Green Bay in which they won 29-27.
While this could make the case about how the Rams are that talented of a team with their ability to close out games when needed the most, it’s also a concern when seeing how many times they’ve actually come close to losing key contests. Looking back at some of those wins over the Seattle Seahawks or Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles easily could have seen the complete opposite happen by ending up with a few losses instead.
Luckily, the most important factor for the Rams is they did win these key games to help build a comfortable lead in the NFC West over the Seahawks. But if Los Angeles ends up in another close situation come Sunday, it will be interesting to see if they have what it takes to hold off New Orleans, or if this ends up being that first loss McVay’s team has come awfully close to seeing on numerous occasions.
