LA Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Los Angeles Rams continued their winning streak with a tight 33-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

This was a close game – and one on the road that many teams would have lost. But not the Rams!

There is only one other team, the Kansas City Chiefs, who have yet to lose a game. If this trend continues, Week 11 could be the most exciting of the season.

Los Angeles Rams claim victory in the “Battle of Los Angeles”

Los Angeles Rams 35 – Los Angeles Chargers 23

The Los Angeles Rams are on a roll! For the first time in more than a decade, the Rams are off to a 3-0 start.  They have been favored in every game thus far and covered the spread each time. Does this mean they will be able to beat the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night?

Rams quarterback Jared Goff seems to be getting more comfortable and improving every game. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, he went for three touchdowns, an interception and completed 29 of his 36 passes. He’s got an arm that allows him to throw over the middle of the field and doesn’t seem afraid to take chances with long balls.

Los Angeles Rams begin season with a victory over the Oakland Raiders

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Oakland Raiders 13

 

The Los Angeles Rams came out of Week 1 with a win over the Oakland Raiders. Even though going into this matchup the Rams were the superior team, questions still remained as to how the team would gel after most of the starters were sidelined throughout the preseason.

This game was a bit of “A Tale of Two Halves.” The first half had the Rams looking a bit rusty, but adjustments were made at halftime. The Raiders were simply outplayed and outscored the entire time as the Rams garnered 23 unanswered points.

Takeaways from LA Rams victory over Houston Texans

LA Rams 21 – Houston Texans 20

People have such polarizing views on preseason. Some love to finally see their favorite players play after months of waiting, while others are happy to watch them sit and avoid injuries. Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay falls into that second camp.

When the Rams face the Oakland Raiders September 10th, most of the offensive line will not have taken a single snap together in the preseason. Too extreme of a choice by McVay? Only time will tell.

Personally, I like to see starters sit. I also like that by sitting the offensive starters all preseason, it shows that McVay has high confidence in his offense.

He did, however, choose to play defensive starters, and we got to watch corners Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh take the field. It was a strong defense that helped carry the LA Rams to a 21-20 victory over the Texans.

Oakland Raiders vs LA Rams: What To Watch

Official Reporter, LA Rams

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan//@lucyRK78

The Los Angeles Rams’ preseason opener was a game we’d all like to forget. This couldn’t be truer for quarterback Sean Mannion. This is a major concern for the Rams (and all of us Rams fans!)

It’s hard to find anything positive about Mannion’s game. He only had a single interception, completed just 3 of 13 passes for 16 yards AND fumbled when linebacker Terrell Suggs stripped the ball from him.

Prior to this first preseason game, Mannion was pretty much a lock at the backup quarterback spot, but has that changed? If head coach Sean McVay isn’t set on Mannion, who would be the next option? QB Colin Kaepernick’s name has been thrown around, and we all know I’m the first in line to sign him, but that doesn’t look like an option, currently. My next pick would be Josh McCown if he doesn’t get the starting job in New York. Robert Griffin III is also a name that keeps coming up, but I’m going to hope this doesn’t happen.

Analyzing the LA Rams 2018 NFL Draft

Official Reporter, LA Rams

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan // @LUCYrk78

The most excitement recently surrounding the LA Rams began even before the 2018 NFL Draft began! To begin with, the Rams already had a pretty solid roster. They then added wide receiver Brandin Cooks, defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, cornerback Aqib Talib, and CB Marcus Peters.

I’ll admit, I’ve been a Suh fan for going on more than 10 years now, having worked with him and his agent closely at a previous job, although I recognize how polarizing he is. I was ecstatic when the Rams picked him up.

The draft may have started slowly for LA Rams fans, with no picks on the first day, but it quickly picked up momentum. On the second and third days of the draft, general manager Les Snead brought in 11 players.

Time for Seahawks fans to throw in the towel? Absolutely not.

Key Contributor, Seattle Seahawks

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

There’s no way around it. The Los Angeles Rams have gone all in to win this year. Making huge additions to their team, additions that will probably only be around for a year or two, the former St. Louis team has decided its time, right now, to win.

Understandably, this has made Seattle Seahawks fans nervous. Add to that the fact the famed Legion of Boom (as fans knew it) has disbanded, there’s not enough Xanax in the world to help the 12th man make it through until preseason.

However, should there be panic in Seattle? Have fans focused too much on who has left, instead of seeing who is still here?
