SB Nation: 23rd (19th last week)

ESPN: 26th (19th)

16: Case Keenum is 3-3 as a starter this season and just completed 27 of 32 passes in a loss to the Lions, which included 19 straight completions. So why 16 for the big number? That's Jared Goff's jersey number, and if Keenum keeps the Rams in the hunt, you might not see No. 16 on the field anytime soon.

Oh Case Keenum! Noooooooooo! Not after that game you put together. Keenum performed wonderfully for 59 minutes in Detroit until the Rams' final salvo. Hated to see Keenum force a throw over the middle into double coverage when he could've lived to play another down. Los Angeles had a minute and change to set up a field-goal attempt. Bear in mind that Keenum, whom so many point to as holding this team back, completed 20 passes in a row and logged four total touchdowns. If he can play like that every week...

They have lost two straight to fall to 3-3 and put that fast start seemingly way in the past. Injuries have hurt.

Kenny Britt’s resurgence has been an unexpected story. Britt has had his moments, but his rookie year was 2009 and has never posted more than 775 yards in a season. Through six games this year he’s at 492 yards. How many people figured Britt would have more yards from scrimmage than Todd Gurley at this point?

With the Rams in London, blue and yellow spotlights will be directed at Big Ben each night this week between the hours of 7-9.

FOX Sports: 22nd (18th)

Case Keenum had a career day, completing 27 of 32 passes for 321 yards and three touchdowns. Unfortunately, he also threw a game-sealing interception, giving the Rams their second straight loss. Perhaps they’re not that team they appeared to be after starting 3-1.
