Back to LA
We’re looking forward to facing a Rams offense that is leading the league in scoring right now. They have improved by leaps and bounds over last year and a lot of that has to do with execution. Their offensive line is blocking really well and thats given Gurley a lot of room to run. They are also putting Gurley in good spots to make plays in the run and pass game. Jared Goff keeps their pass game clicking by taking what the defense gives him.
Our defense may have to lean on some young guys like Shaq and Justin as we take on LA. I have all the trust in the world with those guys. Their confidence is sky high and they are showing great technique on practice and on game day. There is a lot of depth on this team and that is the first time that we have been able to say that in a long time. That depth carries through every level of the defense - from the line to the linebackers to the defensive backs. We have ourselves in a good spot right now.
Get game day ready with my official Game Day Bucket Hat.
I do enjoy watching good defenses in this league and the Rams are one of the elite. Not only are they an elite unit but they have one of the best players in the NFL in Aaron Donald. He is one of the most disruptive defenders in the league, regardless of position. He plays with great hands and perfect pad level. You know he’s someone that our offense is going to have to deal with on every play.
I’m looking forward to being able to get back to Los Angeles and play in the Coliseum. I’ve always loved every opportunity I’ve had to play there. It is an amazing venue that gets even better knowing that a lot of my family will be at the game. It is good to see football back in Los Angeles and I can’t wait to take on the Rams.
