Article Summary:

Few NFL teams have been as upfront about their desire to win now as the Rams. Stafford almost single-handedly preserved the Rams’ divisional-round win – against Brady, no less – and has already proven he was worth the steep price tag, which included ex-starter Jared Goff.

Michel, Beckham and Miller have all been Grade-A contributors in the Stafford-led army.

Turning point

Week 14 at Cardinals: You could make a case for Week 3, when Stafford and the Rams fully arrived as an offensive powerhouse, rolling over the reigning champion Bucs in a 34-24 win that wasn’t as close as the score suggests. Stafford had his way against the Cards secondary, throwing three scores and leading a bunch of long drives, while the Rams picked off Kyler Murray twice, solidifying McVay’s team as the most formidable in the NFC West and helping extend an eventual five-game winning streak that lasted until the season finale.
