The LA Rams offense may run on the arm strength of starting quarterback Matthew Stafford, but the defense is fueled by the chaos and carnage that is All-Pro defensive lineman, Aaron Donald.

The Rams have had plenty of time to rest. The team has plenty of time to watch teams compete in the NFL playoffs and get hungry again. Now, it comes down to whether this team can deliver in 2023. I, for one, think that answer is most definitely yes.

And I believe that Aaron Donald will have a big part in the LA Rams’ success in 2023.
