Los Angeles Rams: Rams Miss the Playoffs
It’s a little cliche to say the Rams will have a hangover from their Super Bowl loss and miss the playoffs this year, but it’s not that crazy. Even with a star like Aaron Donald leading the way, the team’s defense was unreliable for long stretches last season.
There’s also the lingering question over Todd Gurley’s health, as he clearly wasn’t the same player at the end of last season despite insisting that his knee was fine.
If Gurley is no longer himself, it’s a game-changer for the Rams, and with the 49ers and Cardinals poised to improve and the NFC wild-card race as competitive as ever, even a solid 8-10 win season could result in the Rams missing the playoffs.
