When it comes to the LA Rams offense, 2023 was nothing to sneeze at. The offense's ability to move the football was good enough for a Top 10 ranking (ranked seventh) while the ability to put points on the scoreboard was also good enough for a Top 10 ranking (ranked eighth). But if this team has any hopes to compete in, let alone win, Super Bowl LIX, the offense will need to do a lot better.

How much better? Well, to win it all, the offense must bear the load. At least through the course of the 17-game season. After all, the Rams offense averaged 23.8 points per game last season. That was in spite of the team sorting through multiple iterations of the offensive line, playing two games without starting quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Rams also had to weather the storm of five games without RB Kyren Williams, as well as five games without WR Cooper Kupp.

That is no easy feat. The Rams stated that they are committed to a larger and season-long role for Robinson in 2024. But even if true, there are other enhancements to this offense that bear discussion. They are:
