Can anyone in the NFC West match the Rams on offense?

While the power division in the National Football League may be shifting from the NFC West to the AFC West, a question to ponder for fans in Los Angeles is if any team in the NFC West is ready to challenge the Rams.

That’s a question that will be answered sooner rather than later. Before LA reaches the quarter-pole of the season, the Rams will be on the road in consecutive weeks to play the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers.

Both Arizona and San Francisco have the talent to test the Rams. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray should have a contract done prior to the season, allowing a long-festering distraction to finally be resolved.

The 49ers are the other team that will be interesting to watch. Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco organization seem ready to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo to second-year quarterback Trey Lance.

In Seattle, the Seahawks are content to be a cellar-dweller in hopes of securing a top pick in next year’s NFL Draft. Pete Carroll is in desperate need of a quarterback, and the idea that either Drew Lock or Geno Smith is the future is a Fool’s Paradise.

While it almost seems illogical that anyone could dethrone the LA Rams in the NFC West, nothing is impossible. LA is certainly the odds-on favorite to continue as champions of the division. But in the NFL, nothing is ever really a lock.
