Last week: 28 (+3)

Record: 3-3

The Rams won last week to get to .500, but it was an incredibly fluky win. They won the turnover battle by 4, including two return touchdowns and somehow won the game by 25 despite losing the first down battle by 12 and the yardage battle by 204. Teams who lose the first down battle by 10 and the yardage battle by 200 have won 35 times since 1989, against 380 losses. Ironically, the Texans have surrendered two such wins this season, as the Seahawks won in this fashion earlier this year. Still, the Rams are not going to be able to win that way going forward. Their other two wins came by a field goal and against the Jaguars respectively, while their 3 losses have all been blowouts going into garbage time. They’re still moving the chains at just a 72% rate, as opposed to 75% for their opponents. They could be overrated going forward.
