Darrell Henderson, a second-year running back, surprised many with his training camp this year against the Buffalo Bills.
The LA Rams have played only one home game but will stay at home to face the NFC East New York Giants in Week 4
The LA Rams are on the verge of returning to SoFi Stadium. And despite some uncertainty about areas of the team’s performance so far the Rams are a respectable 2-1 and are very much in the mix of the early NFL Playoff debates. Did the Rams defeat two Patriots NFC East teams but subsequently fall to a playoff team in the Buffalo Bills? Perhaps Are there any doubts that a game three played in the SoFi Stadium would have finished in the same manner?
Two, difficult road games to the east coast are a hard schedule for any team on the west coast. It would likely have been different if the Rams would have been able to stay in the Eastern Time Zone before week three.
Sweet home sweet home :
Los Angeles Rams are at risk every time they travel, as are any NFL team. They are in new surroundings, exposed to new people, must eat from restaurants and deliver to them. Today we learn that Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings have staff and players with the Titans.
After almost a year of COVID-19, people are slowly losing sight of themselves. The LA Rams organization has a better grasp of controlling the coronavirus’s so many variables when they are home. Besides the familiar areas, the relaxation of lying on familiar pillows and the comfort of awakening to a home-brewed coffee, the Rams are simply safer in Los Angeles.
September surprises surprise!
While the LA Rams are familiar with quality football, this team raises the bar once again. There can be little doubt that the Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff has matured this year. He is a much different QB this year. But there is much more happening this year. This season, the offensive line played at a higher level. And now the offense has been blessed with weapons.
Darrell Henderson, a second year running back, surprised many against the Buffalo Bills with this year’s training camp. With that burst he is now on the course for 1,000 yards rushing this year. This is mildly surprising given that the Rams actually didn’t give him much appearances in 2019. But the Rams have a returning rookie running back called Cam Akers who will likely see considerably more offensive snaps down the road.
Fuller is fit for this defense
The biggest surprise to date, however, has to be the play of rookie safety Jordan Fuller. Not only in the plays he is directing on the field, but in the manner in which the defence appeared to erode when he is off the field. He has been making great plays since the first week of the game.
Jordan Fuller’s big stop in the Red Zone on 4th and 3nd. The Rams has a big game of rookie safety, Jay Sorkin.

With the 199th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Rams discovered Fuller. It is that ability to find deep inside the draft NFL starting talent that continues to propel the Rams’ hopes of getting back to postseason competition each year. And they plan on finding LB Micah Kiser and Kenny Young as consistent play in the future.
The Rams come home to their SoFi Stadium this week. And they host an out-manned and out-gunned New York Giants team. For the first time in this young 2020 NFL season the LA Rams will be the odds-on favourite. Can they manage the expectation of winning as well as the expectation of losing? This week we will find out.
