Nonetheless, it’s yet another reminder that the Rams are looking at a potentially very tough first year under new Head Coach Sean McVay. Yesterday, I covered the odds that had the over/under for the Rams’ win total in 2017 at 5.5, one of the lowest over/unders in the NFL. A week ago, I dropped in NFL.com’s recent power rankings that had the Rams at 28th...the same slot that ESPN has them. Both have kept them there since the end of the 2016 season.
It’s an upward climb for the Rams coming out of the Jeff Fisher era on a 4-12 record with the NFL’s worst offense. If these odds are any indication, that climb will take more than 16 games.
