2. Protection for Goff
Back in the offseason, the Rams felt confident enough in a few changes to the offensive line that Jared Goff would still receive the proper protection from the offensive line.
Not to mention, with Los Angeles making it clear they would be taking a different approach with Todd Gurley‘s workload, the Rams needed the offensive line to come through even more.
With that being said, Week 10 was yet another example of how horrendous the offensive line has been for Los Angeles this season, and when looking at the group that will be starting on Sunday, it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out.
All due respect to the Rams, but the Bears’ defense must be looking at the offensive line situation for Los Angeles, and be excited over the kind of night they could have in the sack department.
If Goff felt uncomfortable in the loss to the Steelers, one can only imagine how he could be feeling against the Bears since their defense is one of the best units in the league for a reason.
Looking back at the offseason, it’s difficult not to wonder if they regret their decisions with the offensive line since this could play a factor over whether the team is participating in the playoffs come January or watching from home.
