The LA Rams faced the Seattle Seahawks after a devastating loss, eager to determine just how good or bad this team would be in 2021. But after another rather Weebly-Wobbly worrisome Week 5 win, it seems as though the Rams know less about this team than after their Week 4 loss.
Thankfully, I don’t believe that, even at a 4-1 record, anyone will be broadcasting to the nation that the Rams are the ‘Best Team in the NFL’ for some time. What we did discover is that the Seattle Seahawks will likely not be winning the NFC West this year. Likely, but not impossible.
We witnessed the LA Rams‘ powerfully potent offense struggle against the worst defense in the NFL.

Geno Smith threw his first touchdown pass since playing for the New York Giants in 2017? Yeah, that’s the guy.
The LA Rams escaped with the win and now are rewarded with a mini-BYE week before traveling across the nation to face the New York Giants. The Giants are coming off a surprising victory against the New Orleans Saints and must now face their NFC East rivals, the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday.
