3 reasons Patriots running backs could give Rams trouble during Super Bowl 53
Here are three reasons why the running backs of the New England Patriots could give the Los Angeles Rams trouble during Super Bowl 53.
Remember how much of a concern stopping the run was for the Los Angeles Rams on defense back during the regular season after plenty of disappointing performances?
After looking at their defense on paper heading into the regular season, the Rams seemed like they were going to end up with one of the top units in the league, which unfortunately wasn’t exactly the case since opposing running backs always seemed to have their way.
With that being said, Los Angeles deserves plenty of credit for the adjustments made during the playoffs after watching the running backs they were able to keep in check for the most part leading up to the Super Bowl.
As impressive as it was to watch the Rams hold Ezekiel Elliott to just 47 rushing yards, it was even more amazing to see the defense have Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram combine for just 46 rushing yards in the NFC Championship.
Once again, Los Angeles will face another major test on defense since New England has one of the top running back units in the league thanks to a trio players that could take off at any time.
The Rams may feel confident in their chances of being able to have another strong performance to stop the Patriots ground attack, but unfortunately that’s always easier said than done. In fact, here are three reasons why New England’s running backs could give Los Angeles plenty of trouble in the biggest game of the year during Super Bowl 53.
