The Los Angeles Rams’ Offense Bounces Back

Just a week ago, the Rams struggled put up quality production on offense against the Giants. They finished with just 17 points in that outing and the defense carried the team en route to a victory.

The Rams managed to finish with 30 points and 429 total yards of offense on 13 total drives. Los Angeles had just one turnover that came in the form of an interception within the red-zone.

Washington may have a 1-4 record, but it’s important to note take their defense lightly. They have a very talented front-seven led by Chase Young and are capable of making plays in the secondary.

It’s always a possibility for a team to play down to a lesser opponent. The Rams’s offense didn’t allow that to happen for a consecutive week. Los Angeles will need to use this to build momentum in order to prepare for more well-rounded upcoming opponents.
