No one has been able to slow down the Los Angeles Rams, leaving them at 8-0 through eight weeks. It marks the first time the Rams have begun a season at 8-0, since 1969.
The Rams got to 8-0 by defeating the Green Bay Packers 29-27. The Packers were 3-2-1 heading into this game, suffering another loss at the hands of the Rams on Sunday.
The Packers were the beginning of a tough stretch of games for the Rams in the next four weeks. Next week, is the highly regarded game against the New Orleans Saints. Two weeks after that, we get another heavyweight bout against the Kansas City Chiefs.
It’ll be exciting to watch those games, seeing where the Rams are at when facing stiffer competition. Win or lose, these types of games get you well prepared for the post-season.
Even with the Rams establishing a 8-0 record to begin the season, they still have areas where they could improve on their roster. Whether it be at outside linebacker or at cornerback, the Rams could become buyers by tomorrow’s trade deadline.
The secondary has struggled since Aqib Talib went down with injury (could return from IR later this season) and Marcus Peters hasn’t been one-hundred percent since his injury. It’ll be interesting to see if the Rams decide to stay pat or try to improve an already remarkable roster.
If they do decide to try to deal for any players, here are a few moves the Rams should consider manufacturing.
