Los Angeles Rams

Overall Team DVOA

33.2% 3rd

The Rams are 5-1, and given a pillow-soft schedule over the next month (Detroit, at Houston, Tennessee, at San Francisco), they should be an eight- or nine-win team headed into their Week 11 bye. Matthew Stafford is still an MVP candidate, leading all quarterbacks in passing DVOA, and the defense has climbed to fourth in DVOA as well. This has been a nearly flawless team, but that one flaw is a big one: their Week 4 loss to the Cardinals could mean the difference between being the top seed in the NFC playoffs or merely the top wild-card team. Their rematch in Arizona on Monday night in Week 14 is looming as one of the biggest games of the season, but there's still a lot of football to be played between now and then. –- Vincent Verhei
