Los Angeles Rams: 5 best games before the bye week
Week 11 at the Coliseum is already a groundbreaking moment for the National Football League. First, it was the game that ushered in a new kind of NFL in from of a prime-time audience. It was also a game that did not hang on veteran names like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, etc.
Monday Night Football, a game previously scheduled for Mexico City, found itself stateside again in Los Angeles, with the rest quickly becoming the kind of history the league needed on a night long since dead, on a network quickly fading into irrelevance.
The Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs rekindled great football on a great night of the week.
It was also great television for an audience the league was practically built for.
With amazing sight-lines courtesy of a great stadium for football, the 54-51 win the Rams survived also set the table for what could be a down to the wire December with the Saints for home field advantage.
Most importantly, it showcased now and future MVP candidates, two quarterbacks who aren’t going anywhere but up, and a coach in Sean McVay built for a new NFL in a city where that kind of personality is king.
Bottom line, the best game of the season featured a team in a city where the league needs to be, and be successful. Week 11 and the Rams delivered just when the league needed most on a night needing the same.
