The 4-3 Los Angeles Rams win on the road against the Atlanta Falcons 37-10. In cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s debut with the team, since being traded to LA from the Jacksonville Jaguars last Tuesday, October 15th, he recorded four tackles (all solo) and racked up a force fumble. Many wondered how Ramsey would fare with the defense after replacing Marcus Peters (who was sent to the Baltimore Ravens).
The Rams defense allowed only 224 offensive yards to the Falcons, their best performance of the season. The defensive effort in today’s game also helped Los Angeles snap their three game losing streak. The added cherry on top was a forced fumble on an Atlanta punt return that was recovered for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the game.
On the offensive end, quarterback Jared Goff contributed to all three of the Rams touchdowns in the contest. With two touchdown passes (one to Todd Gurley and one to Gerald Everett) and another rushing, Goff had a much needed bounce-back game. The production of the offense still needs tweaking going forward, specifically as the run game struggled to get going.
Between Gurley, and back running backs Darrell Henderson Jr., and John Kelly, the trio posted 32 attempts for a mere 81 yards total. The offensive line struggled at points to create holes at the line of scrimmage. But, it’s also evident that Todd Gurley is still lacking his explosion which was displayed last season.
Coming off the necessary win, Los Angeles returns home next Sunday to take on the Cincinnati Bengals at the Coliseum. Looking forward, most would predict that the Rams should be able to take advantage of an opponent similar to Atlanta.
