• Alexander: Rams haven’t been the same since that week off

    LOS ANGELES — What on earth did the Rams do during their bye week, anyway?
    Remember? After that rousing, magical 54-51 Monday night victory over Kansas City Nov. 19 in the Coliseum, they had a week to relax and gear up for the stretch drive. The way things have gone since they came back, the assumption would be that they did too much basking in their good reviews and not enough gearing up.

  • Todd Gurley’s injury derails Rams running plans in loss to Philadelphia Eagles

    LOS ANGELES – The plan was deliberate. The course correction was clear.
    A week after leaving Todd Gurley out in the bitter cold, there was no mistaking Sean McVay’s attempt to heat up the Rams’ once-scorching run game on Sunday. In Chicago, Gurley had 14 measly touches – the fewest since his rookie season. Not so coincidentally, the Rams responded with their worst offensive performance in two years under Sean McVay.

    LOS ANGELES – All along the Rams said this wasn’t going to be easy. The problem, of course, that it was.
    They could play half-games against Denver, Detroit and Seattle and still fall back on their truths. They had the best offense, the best runner, the best defensive lineman, the best punting game.  Their masterpiece was that orgiastic, 54-51 victory over Kansas City on Monday Night Football, in front of a spellbound Coliseum, in what was universally ordained an official Super B
