Following one of the wildest games and the highest score in NFL history, the Los Angeles Rams got a chance to take a break. They will come back in action this week and might won’t need to score anywhere near as many points to keep up with their opponent.
The Rams (10-1) will come to Michigan to face with the last place that is Detroit Lions (4-7) on this Sunday. Los Angeles enjoyed a goodbye week after its 54-51 shootout victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the highest-scoring game in the history of “Monday Night Football” and is the third combined points in an NFL game.
Sean McVay, the coach of Rams said that they were in good shape. He couldn’t remember the last time that we were able to have off during the Thanksgiving day. Sometimes, we are always rushed and then going to work on Friday, so it was a blessing to be able to have the goodbye fall on the time that it did for everybody. It is also a blessing to be coaching a 10-1 team with aspirations of holding the Lombardi Trophy. The Rams would affirm the NFC West with a winning Sunday.
Quarterback Jared Goff torched the second place of Chief for 413 passing yards and four touchdowns as well as scored a rushing touchdown. He had 3,547 passing yards and 26 passing touchdowns for the season. Todd Gurley has already passed the 1,000-yard rushing mark with 1,043 and has scored 17 touchdowns and 13 on the ground. The Lions are the newest team which are tasked with trying to slow down the Rams, who are averaging 35.4 yards per a game, the third-best place in the NFL.
“They used a lot of play actions based on the run game to kind of get those chunk yardages downfield, but have to admit that run game is really good,”, said Lions coach Matt Patricia. The Rams also have the league’s most dominant defender in Aaron Donald’s defensive lineman, who has accounted a half of the team’s 29 sacks.
With the fourth-quarter performance against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, did not impress anyone. He threw two decisive repression in the 23-16 loss of Detroit, including a tiebreaking pick-six.
In his auspices, Stafford has a lot of finite choices around him. Top receiver Golden Tate was dealt to Philadelphia in October, and Marvin Jones was just proclaimed out for the season because of a knee wound. A knee injury is probable to sideline powerful rookie running back Kerryon Johnson for the second uninterrupted game.
Aqib Talib who is Rams defender was indicated to comeback from injured prepare on Monday, and he could play on Sunday. He has been sidelined since being through ankle operation in the end of September.
