Four games down, 12 to go in what’s shaping up to be quite an exciting season for the St. Louis Rams.
Who would’ve thought the Rams would be 2-2, proudly sporting a .500 record for the first time since the 2006 season.
If I would have told you prior to the season that after four they would be a .500 team, would you have believed me?
Heck, I don’t know if I would have believed me.
The lost two games they lost were against teams they should have beaten(Arizona & Oakland) and their two wins are against teams they probably should have lost to (Washington & Seattle).
The Rams are the only team to show any sort of consistency and improvement from game to game.
Look at the breakdown:
St. Louis Rams
Week 1: Lost to AZ by 4, Week 2: Lost to OAK by 2, Week 3: Beat WASH by 14, Week 4: Beat SEA by 17.
With two losses by a combined six points, a break here or there and they could be undefeated or 3-1.
Week 1: Beat STL by 4, Week 2: Lost to ATL by 34, Week 3: Beat OAK by 1, Week 4: Lost to SD by 31.
Two wins by a combined five points, two losses by a combined 65 points.
Week 1: Beat SF by 25, Week 2: Lost to DEN by 17, Week 3: Beat SD by 7, Week 4: Lost to STL by 17.
Two wins by a combined 32 points and two losses by a combined 34 points. They either blow the opponent out or get blown out.
San Francisco 49ers
Week 1: Lost to SF by 25, Week 2: Lost to NO by 3, Week 3: Lost to KC by 21, Week 4: Lost to ATL by 2.
Sad to say it but the 49ers have been the most consistent team in the division.
The division is clearly up for grabs. It’s up to the Rams to take it.
Next four games:
Week 5: @ DET
Week 6: SD
Week 7: @ TB
Week 8: CAR
