After dominating the NFC West division in 2017 and 2018, the Los Angeles Rams took a step back in 2019 with a 9-7 record, finishing third in the division. Although the Rams lost in disappointing fashion to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, they had high hopes for 2019 and beyond. Unfortunately, those hopes spiraled into a lackluster offense and a dysfunctional defense. After letting fan favorites Clay Matthews III and Todd Gurley walk in free agency, the Rams look to re-tool and reload for a return to the top of the NFC West. With this in mind, let’s check out five bold predictions for the Rams in the 2020 NFL Season.
After another stellar season, Russell Wilson, where if not for Lamar Jackson‘s lights out season, could’ve easily walked away with the MVP award. Another successful double-digit season that featured a pair of epic matchups with division rival and ultimate NFC Champions, the San Francisco 49ers. Continue reading →

In a year where expectations varied, Russell Wilson once again put the entire Seattle Seahawks team on his back and nearly took them on a deep playoff run.

2018 was a forgetful year for the Cardinals. The team only won three games with two coming against the 49ers who were the second-worst team in the league, while the Cardinals were the worst.

The team is under a full rebuild and will look completely different this year with Steve Wilks fired and replaced by Kliff Kingsbury bringing in a whole new dimension the NFL has never seen.

Their season was marred by injuries, with Jimmy Garoppolo getting hurt early, Jerick McKinnon not playing at all, and Matt Breida getting hurt after dominating in the run game. Continue reading →
2018 was a better year than most Seahawks fans probably anticipated. The team set out to run the ball more, and that was exactly what they did by leading the NFL in rushing yards per game with an average of 160 yards. With a much-improved run game, the team didn’t have to rely on Russell Wilson trying to make a play every down behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The Seahawks finished the season 10-6, making it their seventh straight winning season and their sixth playoff appearance in that same time frame. While they lost a heart-breaker against the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, it’s hard to be upset when your team overperforms during the regular season.
