II – Jared Goff lights up the sky
LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff is getting better each week, with his best performance so far this year against the Buffalo Bills. But this week, he takes another step forward. The Rams have been consistently good. Goff is fundamentally sound. And all the while, you look at the Rams arsenal of offensive weapons and wonder if that’s as good as it gets?
This week that question is answered with an emphatic no. The Rams have many weapons on both offense and defense, and the team finally puts more of them to good work in the same game. While the Rams will get the ball to Woods and Kupp in this one, Look for the team to test the Giants safeties by deeper routes to WR Josh Reynolds and tight end Gerald Everett.
Everybody gets targeted in this one
This week will not feature one or two hot-handed receivers. But Goff will work the ball to multiple receivers against the Giants on his way to his best game of the season. 500 yards? Maybe not, but a solid 400-yard passing game is not entirely out of the question. A strong showing today would be just the right type of game to start in October.
Unlocking the Rams offense today will give the Washington Football team plenty to digest next week. And after that? The Rams travel to San Francisco for their first division game against the 49ers. For the Rams to be ready to face the 49ers, the team will need to be firing on all cylinders. They can do that in week four.
