What a difference a
year decade makes.
On the heels of a forgettable 4-12 campaign, the new-look Rams have shown they have a, well, new look: winning. The team ended a decade-long run of losing seasons, and, for the first time since 2006, will finish with at least a .500 record. If things keep going the way they’re going, the team will see the postseason for the first time since 2004 and boast a winning record for the first time since 2003.
Perhaps more impressive, they stopped the Saints’ eight-game winning streak and held Drew Brees to 246 passing yards, including only 96 through the first three quarters.
A huge reason for the team’s success is QB Jared Goff, who threw for 354 yards with two scores and a pick on 28-of-43 efficiency. He is head and shoulders—also, 35 points on his QB rating—above his performance from last year.
Yeah, firing Jeff Fisher as coach will have that effect on a team.
