Los Angeles Rams: Week 2 (Home)
One year after representing the NFC in the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams took a bit of a step back last season by failing to even earn a playoff berth, meaning the pressure to bounce back will be higher than ever in 2020.
From the offensive line struggling to be consistent to Todd Gurley dealing with some sort of mysterious knee issue, there were plenty of reasons to blame for the Rams coming up short in 2019, and sadly things aren’t going to be any easier for the upcoming season.
Not only is Gurley officially gone after Los Angeles decided to release the former Georgia star, but the defense lost a few key members in free agency as well ranging from Dante Fowler Jr. to Cory Littleton.
Sean McVay certainly has plenty of reasons to feel confident the Rams will turn things around in 2020, but also there are no guarantees.
Since there has already been plenty of talk over whether Los Angeles missed their window to win the Super Bowl from the 2018 season, this arguably adds even more pressure on McVay entering his fourth year as head coach.
But once again, just because the Rams failed to live up to the high expectations last season doesn’t mean this matchup will be easier for the Eagles since Los Angeles still has plenty of talent to cause all sorts of problems for Philadelphia on both sides of the football.
