4. Offense adjusting without Kupp

Defeating the Seahawks for the second time in 2018 unfortunately came with a major loss as well after Cooper Kupp was forced to leave the game with an injury before discovering he had suffered a torn ACL. When looking at all of the hard work Kupp had been putting in to get healthy again in previous weeks after dealing with a concussion and MCL sprain, it was crushing to see Goff lose one of his most reliable targets for the rest of the season.

With that being said, as crushing as it was to see Kupp go down, Sean McVay knows this also opens up the door for other players on offense to step up, which is where someone like Josh Reynolds could come into play. Back before the official start of the regular season when the Rams were making roster cuts, this was one of the main reasons why the team seemed so convinced that Reynolds was worth keeping around since they knew he was capable of stepping up when given the opportunity.

Los Angeles fans were fortunate enough to see what Reynolds can bring to the table a few weeks ago when he managed to haul in two touchdown catches in a tough win over the Green Bay Packers. With the Chiefs expected to focus most of their attention on the whereabouts of Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, Reynolds could be in another similar situation like that game against the Packers in which he benefits from additional passes thrown in his direction.
