The Los Angeles Rams have officially clinched the NFC West divisional crown after taking care of business in Nashville. After a close battle against the AFC playoff chasing Tennessee Titans, the Rams emerged victorious to give the franchise their first divisional crown in 14 seasons.
1. Los Angeles Rams
The Rams won a tough game against the Titans with large doses of Todd Gurley. Gurley combined for 276 yards from scrimmage via the ground and air. With such performances down the stretch, teammates and coaches have pushed for Gurley to get much deserved MVP recognition.
The Seahawks kept their playoff hopes alive by beating the Dallas Cowboys who welcomed back Ezekiel Elliott. Seattle however went through a dramatic postgame with Earl Thomas caught on camera to tell Dallas coach Jason Garrett to “come and get” him.
3. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals beat the reeling New York Giants, 23-0. With a tough season, some believe Bruce Arians may not come back in 2018. The Cardinals travel to Seattle with the opportunity to finish at 8-8.
4. San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers won their fourth straight game, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Led by Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers were able to get to a shootout and won 44-33 against a Jacksonville squad that had playoff seeding hinging on the game.
San Francisco is likely going to be able to get their fifth straight victory with the Rams resting key players.
All in all, the Rams have definitely surprised the division as the season wore on. Picked to finish 3rd or 4th by most pundits, what an amazing season this has been.
Let’s keep going.
