The LA Rams are the only unbeaten team in the NFC and will look to continue that streak in what potentially could be a snow game in Denver.
The LA Rams look to go to 6-0 in an afternoon tilt with the 2-3 Broncos this Sunday at Mile High Stadium.
The LA Rams are coming off a close divisional tilt in which they came out victorious 33-31 against the Seattle Seahawks. Jared Goff passed for over 300+ yards and Todd Gurley ran for 3 touchdowns to highlight the offense for the Rams.
Although they came out on top of the scoreboard, the Rams suffered a couple of injuries to their offensive personnel. Brandin Cooks, and Cooper Kupp both sustained concussions just before the end of the first half and are considered questionable for the game.
If both or one of them miss the game due to injury, the Rams will be looking to a couple players to cover their production.
One of them is Todd Gurley who has been nothing short of spectacular this season. Though his yards per carry is 41, which is short of his standards, he has been a touchdown-scoring machine with his nine scores through five games. He is more then capable of taking on a bigger role in Sunday’s game if needed.
Additionally, Robert Woods of the receiving corp may need to take bigger roles as well. Woods is the only part of the wide receiver healthy at the moment and has been very consistent in production. In his last 3 games, he has at least 5 catches for 80 yards and also scored three times in that span as well.
On the other side of the match, Denver has been a mess since winning its first two games of the season. They are on a three-game losing streak and were just manhandled by the Jets last week 34-16.
They allowed Isaiah Crowell to run for 200+ yards and his partner Bilal Powell over 90 total yards as well. Additionally, Robby Anderson caught two touchdowns and totaled 123 on just 3 receptions against them.
Denver is led by quarterback Case Keenum who has been played average at best and has thrown an interception in every game. Emmanual Sanders and Demaryius Thomas both lead the receiving corp and undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay, and Royce Freeman head the backfield.
This is a good matchup with sneaky shootout potential between an offensive powerhouse and a team trying desperately to regroup and stop its three-game losing streak.
