The LA Rams knew that entering the 2023 NFL season meant finding a way to score points. Success in any shape or form depended heavily upon doing so. As the LA Rams enter Week 11 with a record of 3-6, perhaps the greatest shortfall from the team's plans to succeed has been the ineptness of the Rams' offense at putting points on the scoreboard.
Of 32 NFL teams, the LA Rams are only ranked 22nd at scoring points, averaging just 19.8 points per game. While that is better than the Rams' 18.1 points per game average from 2022, it's certainly a far cry from the NFL's top five offenses, all of whom average 27.0 points per game or better. So how can the LA Rams offense become dangerous once more?
Rams face a new Seahawks team in Week 11
For starters, the Rams must understand that each game on the schedule is a blank canvas. Nothing automatically or organically carries over from one week to the next. And one successful plays are filmed, the next week's defense coordinator will plan and strategize to thwart the Rams offense.
While the Rams got the better of the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, there cannot be any reliance on what worked in that game as a basis for victory in Week 11. It's safe to assume that the Seahawks have improved, as evidenced by their 6-2 record since facing the Rams. And it's also safe to assume that the Rams have had their share of struggles since the season opener, as evidenced by the Rams 2-6 record.
That does not mean that this LA Rams offense cannot put up points. Quite the contrary. When the Rams stick to a balance offensive game plan, the Rams can put up plenty of points. So the question is, how can the Rams pattern their offensive strategy?
There are two ways to do so. The first is to trust the top performers in this offense. The second is to trust the top performances of this season. Let's dissect both so that you can see what I mean:
