Atlanta, Georgia 2021-10-13 23:19:07 –
The Los Angeles Rams have been tied for the second best record in the NFL, but need more proof. On Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles Rams head east to face the short-handed New York Giants.
Under the leadership of the new quarterback Matthew Stafford, the Rams were solid and sometimes spectacular, opening the season with a 4-1 record.
Los Angeles lost to undefeated Arizona Cardinals 37-20 after defeating Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-24 in the third week, but last week 26-17 division rival Seattle Seahawks. I played against.
The Rams pass offense, which is expected to improve, was 3rd in total yards (1,551) in the NFL, 2nd in yards per game (310.2), and 2nd in yards per trial (because Stafford was slow and efficient). It was 9.2).
But even two of the best defensive players in the NFL, Aaron Donald of the defensive tackle and Jalen Ramsey of the cornerback, Rams passed the defense after leading the category last season (190.7 yards) and finished 23rd (190.7 yards). 271.0 yards per game).
Cornerback Darious Williams on the injured list after suffering an ankle sprain against the Seahawks last Thursday doesn’t help.
Rams can help be in the soft part of the schedule in the next three games against the Giants (1-4), Detroit Lions (0-5) and Houston Texans (1-4).
Rams coach Sean McVay said, “If we can’t handle (Giants) at that maturity and it can’t affect our process and our concentration and concentration, we’ll I don’t think the team is there. ” About potential disappointment in the simpler part of the schedule.
“… a lot of work needs to be done to play enough to win the fifth victory against a really competitive soccer team.”
The Giants are just trying to find out who to put in the field on Sunday. Quarterback Daniel Jones finished his 44-20 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday with a concussion and hasn’t practiced this week, but hasn’t been ruled out on Sunday.
The Giants are not expected to run back on Saquon Barkley (ankle) and wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee). Wide receivers Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Sterling Shepard (hamstring) didn’t play last week.
The Giants appeared to be rising with a defeat near the Washington Football Team and the Atlanta Falcons. He then defeated New Orleans Saints 27-21 on the street, followed by a defeat injured last week.
Whether it’s quarterback Jones or Mike Glennon, the New York attack requires even more. New York attacks average only 20.6 points per game.
Maximizing productivity by Donald breathing in from either neck has attracted the full attention of the Giants.
“Clearly there are a few things in the game plan when it comes to dealing with (Donald): how they fit us throughout the week and what we do with him. It’s about seeing if you do, “said Giants head coach Joe Judge. “I think the biggest thing for him is when he joins the game and he has enough flexibility to change his plans based on what they are doing with him … you. You can’t lock your knees based on what you’re looking for. “
Donald missed practice on Wednesday after suffering a knee bruise against the Seahawks, but will play on Sunday, similar to Rams kicker Matt Gay (ankle pain).
