The Rams have been nothing but surprising this season as they have been an absolute powerhouse. They are now one of the favourites to win it all with the top offense in the entire NFL. At the beginning of the year the Rams were ranked 29th out of 32 in the NFL Power Rankings. Now they sit at number 2 heading into week 10. The Rams lead the entire NFL in points per game averaging 32.9. And it all starts with their amazing offense.
Lead by second year pro quarterback Jared Goff, he has a very strong QB rating of 97.9 ranking 7th among active quarterbacks. He is seen as a playmaker and has proven himself especially last week where he put up an amazing 311 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also has had a lot of help from their starting running back too.
Todd Gurley is in charge of the backfield where he has rushed for 686 yards and 7 touchdowns for the season on the ground alone. When he leaves the backfield he can also make some room in the air catching the ball for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns. He is the complete back and has proven it day in and day out. But when he gets stumped they rely on the rest of their offensive weapons.
In the deep wide receiving core Tavon Austin, Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods lead the air attack. Rookie wide receiver Cooper Kupp rounds out the core and has already amassed 370 yards and 3 touchdowns. Watkins and Woods were brought in from the Buffalo Bills to increase the height of the group with Woods leading the group with 451 yards.
Tight end wise Tyler Higbee, the second year pro, has been efficiently improving doubling his previous year stats in half the amount of games. But the real story is about the other side of the ball where the Rams really show off their talent.
The Rams defense allow a low amount of 19.4 points per game tying for ninth best. They have been very consistent this year and because of their offensive help they have the best point differential in the entire league with 108.
As a team the Rams are tied for third with 27 touchdowns and lead their division with a 6-2 record. They are surprising the rest of the league but they have one big challenge left before they can officially be called the best team in the league. In week 14 they may have the hardest challenge yet where they face the only team ranked higher than them, the Eagles.
But if the Rams can do anything it is definitely proving to the league that they should never be underestimated. Because no one knows what can happen in football. Especially when it comes to the Super Bowl. Can they do it? Just wait and see.
