Rams-Giants: Week 9 Recap Reaction

New, comments

The Rams dominated the New Yorks Giants and are playing meaningful football in November.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at New York Giants Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams have definitely surprised many this season.

New Coach

New Players

New Mentality

Winning

Lead by Coach Sean McVay who has morphed Jared Goff into a legitimate quarterback, the Rams are not only victorious two more times so far in 2017 than all of 2016, but they also have outscored the previous season’s team with a whole half season left to go.

The Rams have continued to be a juggernaut on offense through the ground and air, evident by the 300+ yards passing (on only 22 attempts!) and 150+ rushing yards (albeit many in garbage time). Goff continues to benefit from great gameplanning, finishing with 311 passing yards on 14/22 passing with 4 TDs and a QBR of 94.9. Gurley finished the game with 2 TDs on the ground and over 100 total yards.

Now, even the defense is catching up, limiting the New York Giants to 17 points and just over 300 yards of total offense with a myriad of turnovers (interception and two fumbles).

As the Rams continue to move along don’t forget about their young players like Gerald Everett, who continues to make big plays.

Or John Johnson III who can rebound from mistakes like this:

This Rams squad is playing better and better and looking to contend sooner, rather than later.

The Rams face the Texans without Deshaun Watson on Sunday.
