4 reasons Los Angeles Rams will suffer first loss of 2018 in Week 9 to New Orleans Saints
3. Points allowed against serious contenders
Watching the Rams come through on the winning end against legitimate contenders whether it happens to be against the Vikings or the Los Angeles Chargers shows this team is built for a Super Bowl run, which was the plan all along. During the offseason when seeing all of the key moves made on both sides of the football, it was clear that Los Angeles was focused on taking advantage of their talent for the 2018 season, and if they won the Super Bowl, all of the other issues such as salary cap could be figured out down the road.
Defensively, the Rams were already fortunate enough to have the reigning Defensive Player of the Year in Aaron Donald, but the addition of Ndamukong Suh was expected to take the unit to a whole new level, which it has. One can only imagine the fear in some opponents when seeing how Donald and Suh are heading in their direction, but also as great as this has been for Los Angeles, it is concerning that some teams are still figuring out ways to score points.
Just take a look back at a few weeks ago in which the Rams allowed both the Vikings and Seahawks to finish with 31 points. If these two teams were able to score like this with Los Angeles having some concerns at cornerback, just imagine what New Orleans can accomplish.
