3 positives LA Rams offense will carry into next week

The LA Rams have put up 30+ points just twice this season. The first time was in a nearly come-from-behind effort against the Buffalo Bills on the road to close from 28-3 to 35-32. The second occasion was on a road victory against Washington’s Football team, where the offense dissected one of the best passing defenses it had faced to score 30 points.

In both games, the LA Rams stuck to their success offensive formula. Run first, pass second. It’s been simple, but within the nuances, the Rams carry an arsenal of offensive plays, with very dangerous weapons. And with the momentary flashes exposed so far, is there any doubt that the Rams will unlock the back chapters of the playbook as the Rams take on their NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers?

Move the ball and score

The Rams offense can move the ball. The Rams are the fifth-best NFL offense at doing so. But they have had trouble scoring points in 2020. In fact, the LA Rams offense is only 12th best in the NFL at scoring. After all, the job of the offense is not to move the ball, but rather to put the ball in the endzone. The Rams have done so 17 times. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has thrown for eight touchdowns and rushed the ball in for two touchdowns. The remaining runners have rushed the ball into the endzone another seven times.

But the tone of the game five offense was different. This was as much about what the defense would give them as doing what the offense does best. Not only did the offense continue to find their top receivers in Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, but the Rams found tight end Gerald Everett for a big day. Meanwhile, the Rams running backs were persistent and scrappy.  By the final gun, the Rams offense had played one of their most complete games. Here are three things from the game that will likely carry over to game six.
