I: Boast starting QB who can make all throws from any angle

It was not until the LA Rams traded for veteran QB Matthew Stafford, a guy who can make all the throws off-schedule and off-platform that Mahomes can make, that the Rams finally won a Super Bowl for Coach McVay. It was perhaps the success of Mahomes that ignited the Rams search for a similar type of quarterback in the pocket. And clearly Matthew Stafford is the reigning champion of the no-look pass that has already become legendary.

The arm angles of Patrick Mahomes as he makes his passes can appear almost inhuman at times. He can throw in over the top, at an angle, side-armed, and even seems to have an underhanded throw like a softball.

But so can Stafford. And to top it all off, Stafford can make those insane no-look throws that seem too far-fetched to be real. And yet, he does it over and over.

It's clear to see why the Rams were so excited to acquire veteran QB Matthew Stafford. In the land of passing offenses, Matthew Stafford is the honorary Mayor. And that is where Coach McVay wants to reside, in a village of forward passing.

Okay. We've covered the similarities between the Rams and the Chiefs, and they are many. But all that does is give evidence of a draw, tie, or stalemate. If the Rams are to have any hope of winning Super Bowl LIX, this team has to boast some advantages. So here are three areas I believe the Rams have the upper hand. Let's call them difference-makers, and review them one by one.
