We’ve seen the 2017 Rams play for half a season so it shouldn’t be a shock to see them put up spectacular offensive performances at this level, however the recollections of the Jeff Fisher period are simply thick sufficient that it’s nonetheless exceptional how good they’ve turn out to be on that facet of the ball in Sean McVay’s first season as head coach.
The newest instance got here on Sunday afternoon within the Meadowlands because the Rams jumped out to a 27-10 halftime lead after which put their foot on the fuel to run away with a 51-17 win. That leaves them with a 6-2 report on the yr and so they’ll be alone in first place within the NFC West if the Seahawks lose in a while Sunday afternoon.
The Rams put up 473 yards over the course of the proceedings, which ended with Sean Mannion and Malcolm Brown taking the place of Jared Goff and Todd Gurley on offense. Goff was 14-of-22 for 311 yards and 4 touchdowns earlier than exiting the sport whereas Gurley had two dashing touchdowns, a 44-yard reception to arrange a 3rd and a 36-yard spring earlier than a fourth rating.
The Rams will host the Texans in Week 10 and their Tom Savage-led offense didn’t do a lot to recommend they’ll fare higher than the Giants did on that facet of the ball. Eli Manning piloted a 72-yard landing drive as soon as the Rams have been up 38 factors, however there have been three turnovers and simply as little life to the Giants offense as we noticed on protection.
Whatever hope within the Giants was supplied by offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan taking on the play calling is gone after Sunday’s completely dispiriting effort, which additionally featured a blocked punt on the bingo card of miserable developments. The few followers that remained within the fourth quarter chanted for Tom Coughlin and there are seemingly others wishing that Ben McAdoo’s predecessor was nonetheless working the present in Jersey after the crew gave up its most factors at dwelling for the reason that 1964 season.
It’s protected to say that nobody’s feeling that method about McVay and Fisher.
