A three-game losing streak in the middle of the season sent fan confidence in the Los Angeles Rams tumbling below 25-percent. Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller had just joined the team and the Rams fell to the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field to drop to 7-4 after 11 games and a couple games behind the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.
Since then, Los Angeles has won seven of eight games, including two victories over the Cardinals, road wins against the Vikings, Ravens, and Buccaneers, and the lone loss coming at the hand of the hated San Francisco 49ers.
With Tom Brady officially put out to whatever he decides to do next, Rams fans are 100-percent back on board with the direction of the Rams. 100-percent.
Here are the most recent SB Nation Reacts voting results.
