Welcome to today’s Los Angeles Rams season preview. The Rams were another one of the surprises of last season. They won the NFC West a season after going 4-12.
Unfortunately for the Rams, their regular season success didn’t translate into the playoffs. The Rams were defeated by the Atlanta Falcons in the Wildcard round.
This season, the Rams are going for broke, and might have the most talented roster in the league.
On offense, they will have an improved Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, and recently acquired receiver Brandin Cooks. On defense, they added Ndamukong Suh, who will be teamed up with last season’s Defensive Player of the Year, Aaron Donald.
The Rams also added cornerbacks Marcus Peters from Kansas City, Aqib Talib from Denver. In addition to Sam Shields from Green Bay, giving them one of the scariest secondaries in the league this season.
2018 Rams Season Preview
With the Rams adding all these stars, they are giving the rest of the league notice. Notice that they intend to compete for the Super Bowl.
Los Angeles shouldn’t have any problem winning the NFC West again this season. This is because the Seattle Seahawks, who were the only team in the division to challenge them last season, won’t be as good as they were last year. The Seahawks lost Michael Bennett, Richard Sherman, and Chris Avril.
Seahawks are expected to lose Earl Thomas before the season starts or at the trade deadline. This will hurt their already depleted defense.
The San Francisco 49ers went 5-0 with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, but despite their success at the end of the season, they aren’t ready to contend for the division title.
The Arizona Cardinals might give them a run if Sam Bradford can stay healthy, but the Rams will most likely run away with the division title.
In the playoffs, the team has a year of experience under their belts and veterans who have been in the playoffs in the past, so they won’t be overwhelmed like they were last season.
Los Angeles’ odds of winning the Super Bowl this season is 10-1.
