3. Improved offensive line

To say the offensive line of the Rams has been dealing with all sorts of injuries in 2019 would be a huge understatement, whether it involves Brian Allen and Joseph Noteboom both being out for the season or Rob Havenstein missing Sunday’s game due to a knee injury.

Outside of Andrew Whitworth, there was plenty of concern over how the offensive line would look for Los Angeles would look against Chicago, mainly because the group had yet to play together, and some players were far from experienced.

After Sunday’s performance against the Bears, most Rams fans are on the same page in wishing the unit had been playing together all season when looking at how effective they were for the most part.

Never in a million years did anyone imagine that Bobby Evans or Austin Blythe would end up being saviors for Los Angeles when taking on a tough defense in Chicago, but now there’s all of a sudden plenty of excitement over what the unit can accomplish moving forward.
