A defensive gemThe Los Angeles Rams took their vaunted offense up to the Bay area and let the defense do the job. The Rams Lock Down Los Angeles defense was outstanding. In clearly their best game of the year [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Michael-Brockers-Jersey]https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Michael-Brockers-Jersey[/url] , they finally looked like the unit fans expected coming into the season.DT Aaron Donald finally showed why he was highest paid defensive player in the game for at least one day. After a slow start to the season due to his holdout, he had the best game of his career with four sacks and a strip fumble.The Rams defense, which appears to coming together at the right time in the last two weeks, was able to force four turnovers as the offense, which didnt have a great game on their own, converted them into twenty-four points.As a diehard, watching the Rams defensive line treat the San Francisco 49ers offensive line like rag dolls was extremely pleasurable. The result was the Rams delivering a beatdown 39-10 win against their hated rival.The Rams win keeps them undefeated, but their true destiny will be sealed depending on how they play their next four games. This starts with the QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers at home and following this up with the 5-1 New Orleans Saints in the Superdome. This match could well be a preview of the NFC Championship game even more likely to be the battle for gaining the home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Then, the Rams come home against the Seattle Seahawks whom they were barely able to beat on the road and after that travel to Mexico to face the 6-1 Kansas City Chiefs in a possible Super Bowl LIII preview.Looking back at the 49ers game, the Rams cannot rest. They must keep improving. The Rams offenseQB Jared Goff had a bad day. Although he was 18 of 24 for 202 yards [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Joe-Namath-Jersey]Joe Namath Color Rush Jersey[/url] , there were plenty of plays where he missed. He wasnt as accurate as we have normally seen. Many of his throws were high and off the mark. Normally, throwing the ball over the receivers head is sign of nerves. He just didnt seen relaxed in the pocket even though he plenty of time to get the ball to wideouts. Early on, he threw a ball three feet over a wide open TE Gerald Everett and almost got picked off. There was no reason for a hard and fast throw when a simple easy toss would have picked up the first down.Goff hasnt had the kind of 300-yard passing game Ram fans were getting used to since the Seahawks game. Its not that the passing plays arent there. He just seems to be trying to hard. It will all come together if he would just relax.RB Todd Gurley had another big game demonstrating why hes most complete running back in the game both on the ground and in the air. He did drop a gimme swing pass butthats nitpicking at this point.The Rams offense got 24 points off of four turnovers. It should have been 28. When your special teams gets a safety, your offense should turn the ensuing kickoff/punt into seven points, not three. Thats a four-point differential. Had the Rams offense scored a touchdown inside the red zone on ensuing drive after the safety rather then a field goal, the score would have been 43-10.This is second game in a row where replacement RB Malcolm Brown is demonstrating why hes good complement in both the run and passing game to Gurley averaging five yards per carry on thirteen attempts. The mixing and matching is beginning to come together.Of note, who is this guy Nick Williams? Outstanding pickup by the Rams. He made a great catch on a high ball on a critical third down which eventually led to a touchdown after only being with the team less then a week. As long as hes making catches like that, hes gonna be a real boost to an already elite receiving corps.Despite LT Andrew Whitworth and LG Rodger Saffold being a bit banged up after the Denver Broncos game, the offensive line was extremely efficient not only in this game but have been throughout the season thus far. This offensive line was great last year; theyve been even better this year. What a difference from the debacle the offensive line was two years ago. Even though Goff was sacked, it was once again a coverage sack. Goff needs to read this quicker and throw the ball out of bounds. His failure to do so led to taking a potential three more points coming off the board as the Rams were forced to punt instead.Grade: CThe Rams defenseRather then focusing on the obvious and having already previously mentioned the breakout game the Fearsome Threesome had [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Nolan-Cromwell-Jersey]Nolan Cromwell Jersey[/url] , lets talk about the secondary.I have repeatedly mentioned that the key to having a great secondary is a pass rush.I have also noted that depending who the opponents quarterback is, sometimes great coverage will still lead to a completion.In this game, I was happy to see Lock Down Los Angeles finally appear. Both CB Troy Hill and S John Johnson III got interceptions. Not only were they outstanding takeaways, it was necessary to give the unit confidence as 49ers QB C.J. Beathard is nowhere near the caliber of Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Russell Wilson or Patrick Mahomes whom the Rams will facing off in the next four weeks. Thats a lot of firepower, Theres been a lot of criticism leveled at Hill for his play. Ignoring the noise, he played through it. Once CB Aqib Talib comes back, the secondary is going be a stout group regardless of whos in there. If youre playing in the defensive secondary and your name hardly gets mentioned during the broadcast, youre having a good day. What happened to CB Marcus Peters [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Rodger-Saffold-Jersey]Rodger Saffold Color Rush Jersey[/url] , another cornerback who was also facing criticism after the Seahawks game? I dont recall his name being mentioned once during the broadcast.The one time the Niners scored a touchdown, it was their ability to run the ball that set up the play action to TE George Kittle. Theres no way the tight end can be so wide open unless the defense has lost focus on the playaction. Linebackers and safeties have to read the play as soon as it starts much sooner.The only thing the Rams defense lacks is talent at edge rusher. The Rams need to either go out and trade before the deadline for one or hope that rookie OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo can fill the void coming off the PUP list.If the Rams defense can find that edge rusher, it would make the unit an absolute monster. Just the thought of it makes me cringe, and I rarely feel sorry for opposing teams quarterbacks. Remember, defense wins championships especially in a league where offense is the primary focus.Grade: AThe Rams special teamsThe NFL does not keep stats on blocked punts, but after scouring through the record books, LB Cory Littleton should be in the Hall of Fame. He has five blocked punts in two years, and no one is even close. How can any special teams coach allow him to go unblocked? Its criminal! The blocked punt is one of the most exciting plays when your team is doing the blocking and a heartbreaker when your team is getting the punt blocked. Not only does it require great effort, but once the ball starts bouncing it usually winds up in the end zone for a touchdown for the team blocking the punt.I just cant say enough about Littleton, both as a linebacker and for his knack for laying out perfectly for the blocked punt. This is not an easy thing to do without getting a penalty for roughing the kicker [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Brian-Allen-Jersey]https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Brian-Allen-Jersey[/url] , but Littleton makes it seem routineamazing.K Greg Zuerlein whom I was concerned about seems okay despite coming back from the hamstring injury.And what about PR JoJo Natson? I said during training camp and preseason that this speedster is better then Pharoh Cooper, and hes clearly proving it. When Cooper gets off injured reserve, he should concentrate on being a wide receiver.P Johnny Hekker had a punt blocked himself. Hes not having a great year punting, but maybe its the result of lack of reps in the game.Grade: A+The X-factorsWhat turned into a blowout was a godsend for the Rams as the team got to utilize bench players. I loved the fact that OT Joseph Noteboom got action as well as all the others on the offensive line non-starters. Even Mannion looked good handing the ball off to Brown evidence that everything is going right for the Rams for now.Finally, the Rams should chuck the mustard yellow Color Rush uniforms. The unis are not only ugly. Its hard on the eyes to watch on television. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________Its nice to be 7-0 and undefeated yet the Rams cannot rest heading into the toughest part of their schedule.Get better and keep improvingFinal Grade: A- just cause I hate the Niners. Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Los Angeles Rams fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.Week 1 FanPulseWeek 2 FanPulseWeek 3 FanPulse - confidenceWeek 3 FanPulse - game predictionWeek 4 FanPulseWeek 5 FanPulseThats right.A very nice percent of respondents from our league-wide FanPulse question this week said the Los Angeles Rams are the best team in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs, the only other undefeated team, picking up 31% of the vote.I dont really see anything surprising. The Rams offense is marvelous. The team is 5-0 [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Jacob-Mcquaide-Jersey]Jacob McQuaide Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and just about every fan base is wondering who the next Sean McVay is.If anything, its just a good reminder that were far removed from 14 consecutive losing seasons.Bask in the glow, kids.Game time!Odds: Rams 7 point favorites over Denver BroncosTurf Show Times FanPulse: Rams by 9Mile High Report FanPulse: Rams by 14A bit of a weird factor here that while Rams fans are understandably confident about the state of affairs (again hitting 100% this week in our FanPulse vote), Broncos fans are apoplectic. Denver as a franchise has been extremely successful over the last 40 years building up a huge fan base that isnt very used to losing. After a 5-11 season in 2017 and a 2-3 start to this year, Broncos fans are pretty upset coming off of an embarrassing effort against the New York Jets. While Rams fans confidence is riding high, Broncos fans confidence has plummeted:From 93% to 4%...whew.Maybe more interesting is how they spread out the blame for the current state of affairs:Consider how different that is from Dallas Cowboys fans and how they see the responsibility shared:In the end, FanPulse is telling us what we already know...Its a good time to be a Rams fans right now.As always, thanks as always to the TSTers who are voting to give us the data each week!
