Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley has been named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for his record-breaking performance in the Rams’ 23-20 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
Empowered by the play of the Rams’ offensive line Womens Ramik Wilson Jersey , Gurley went off on the Broncos finishing with 208 yards on 28 carries and two touchdowns. Gurley was the first Ram to top 200 yards on the ground since Marshall Faulk in 2001.It’s the fourth time for Gurley to win NFC OPOW in his career after doing so three times in 2017. He also won NFC Player of the Month twice last year as well en route to being named the 2017 NFL Offensive Player of the Year.The game puts him on nearly the exact same statistical trajectory as 2017. Through six games, Gurley has 623 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 129 rushes (compared to 621 yards and four touchdowns from 123 runs a year ago) with 21 receptions for 247 receiving yards and a pair of receiving touchdowns (23/245/3 last year). Best Overreaction:The defense for the Los Angeles Rams was so good that all cause for concern is in the pastFirst off, you should always remain concerned about everything. We live in a crazy world and once you get complacent, well, that’s when life kicks you in the painful parts. But that’s besides the point, which is: DE Aaron Donald Youth Brandin Cooks Jersey , LB Cory Littleton, and S John Johnson III played like leaders of the defense, putting together an epic victory that felt like a “team win.” Yes, Donald was a monster with his four sacks and fumble recovery, but if CB Troy Hill can make you believe a massive improvement has been made, then well Womens Cory Littleton Jersey , I’m a believer. Coach Wade Phillips did a fine job with the defense, shutting down the San Francisco 49ers. And for those who might bring up the fact that the Niners played like garbage, well, that’s why this is an overreaction. If the D can deliver the same level of destruction on the Green Bay Packers, then I might feel more confident in my declaration that the Rams defense is elite.Worst Overreaction:The Rams didn’t miss WR Cooper Kupp since they put up 39 pointsThe Rams’ offense is pretty high-powered, so it’s difficult to argue that a slot receiver’s absence is going to make or break their efforts to make plays. However Womens Johnny Hekker Jersey , WR Nick Williams is not Cooper Kupp and no one is expecting him to be. But the Rams’ offense uses Kupp so well, especially in the middle of the field, which allows WR Brandin Cooks and WR Robert Woods to cash in on the attention that defenders need to pay to Kupp. And a lot of the great field position that the Rams got on Sunday’s game was due to the excellent special teams’ unit —so yes, the offense had a good day, but the stats would have been higher with Cooper Kupp on the field. Simply put: the Rams are always better with Cooper Kupp suited up and ready to play.
