The LA Rams have never been here in the 2022 NFL season before

The LA Rams high powered offense was only able to score 30+ points once through 14 games of the 2022 NFL season. That happened against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, but the Rams needed an entire game to score 31 points. The final score in that game was 31-27, after the Rams’ defense, and some offensive miscues, allowed the Falcons to come back with 17 points in the fourth quarter.

Fast forward to Christmas Day, and the LA Rams find themselves in a place that this team has never been before. The Rams have scored 31 points, 14 of those points following two different interceptions, and the team is up by a score of:


. 6. 45. 31. 51

The Rams may not be a very healthy or successful team this season, but on Christmas Day, that all seems to be behind this team.  The LA Rams’ defense has been both active and energetic. The LA Rams offense has been efficient and surgical.

Before this game began, the LA Rams offense had averaged just 16.4 points per game. Likewise, the Denver Broncos defense has allowed an average of just 18.1 points per game. But then again, the Rams have some reasons to compete in this one.

There are a lot of players who know that they have a chance to earn a spot on the Rams roster for the 2023 NFL season. Some veterans are out to prove that they still got it. Others on the Rams team are out to show that they are back on track. But others who are new to the NFL or to the LA Rams roster are simply out to prove that they belong here.

We asked the question of whether winning or losing the remaining games is better for the Rams and their upcoming 2023 NFL season. I think winning is better for the team right now. Why?

The LA Rams have so many new faces on the roster, and the coaching staff needs to see who can step up even in a season fraught with adversity. Right now, the Rams coaches have to be pleased with the effort they are seeing on Christmas Day. And we have plenty to talk about as a result.
