St. Louis Rams Vs. Cleveland Browns: Todd Gurley's Second TD Shows Off Complete Skill Set

New, comments

The Rams have gone up 24-6 on rookie RB Todd Gurley's second TD of the day.

The St. Louis Rams are leading the Cleveland Browns 24-6 in the middle of the 4th quarter thanks to their defense and the unstoppable force that is budding rookie superstar RB Todd Gurley.

Gurley is up to 123 yards on 17 carries and 35 yards on four receptions with two rushing TDs, the second of which shown above gives you a glimpse of just how complete of a back he is.

There's the vision to see the lane develop and know when to turn the run vertically.

There's the athleticism (and apparent knee strength...) to cut when his vision tells him to turn it up.

There's the acceleration to burst through the lane.

There's the power and balance to finish the run through two would-be tacklers into the end zone.

It's complete. Too complete.

Gurley needs 17 yards to hit 140 yards or more rushing in three straight games in his rookie season. The only other NFL running back to achieve such?

Former Rams RB Eric Dickerson.

That's solid company, whether he makes it or not.
