From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Goff got the win and a rushing score as a gift after an overturn of a long Cooper Kupp score, but he and this offense don't look like last year's first half of the season version. He's only a matchup start. On the road against Cleveland this week isn't a slam dunk.

Week 3: at Cleveland Browns

All QB vs CLE

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Jared Goff rebounded after a rough first game against the Panthers as he completed 68% of his passes in the win against the Saints last week. This was a unit that seemed more comfortable last week as he only threw the ball 28 times instead of the 39 that he threw against the Panthers. When the Rams pass offense is the most effective is when they can establish the run and beat you with the play-action pass. Cooper Kupp seems to be back to 100% health after the ACL injury in 2018 as he is leading the team in targets with 19 and broke through with a 66-yard reception outrunning the Saints safeties. This continues to be one of the more dangerous passing units when it is firing on all cylinders. The Browns secondary is one that on paper looks great, but has yet to really be tested this year facing Marcus Mariota and a combination of Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk last week. On the season, this is a unit that has allowed just 192 yards passing per game. At the corner position, this is the youngest unit in football led by 22-year-old Pro Bowler Denzel Ward and 21-year-old rookie Greedy Williams who has been excellent so far this season. This is a unit that is setup by the pass rush as Myles Garrett is on a mission to backup his statements of winning the Defensive Player of the Year as the defensive end has five sacks through two games. This pace won't continue as they were against backup left tackle Dennis Kelly and Kelvin Beachum who has seen better days. This week the matchup and key to this game will be Garrett against 37-year-old Andrew Whitworth who has made the Pro Bowl four times throughout his career.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs NO (19 / 28 / 283 / 1 / 0 pass, 4 / -2 / 1 rush)

The 2-0 start for the Rams has been despite an up-and-down season start for Jared Goff and the passing game. Week 2 provided upward promise against New Orleans as Goff was more accurate than a week ago but sprinkled in a handful of quizzical decisions and inaccurate passes. Goff missed Cooper Kupp down the seam, nearly added a second interception into double coverage towards Tyler Higbee, and lost a fumble in the red zone, a play which was (incorrectly) fortunately blown dead by the officials as the Saints raced for the sure-fire defensive touchdown. Goff rebounded to pull away for the home win with a laser goal-line slant touchdown to Brandin Cooks and a sneak rushing touchdown, but the Rams are still finding their way on offense through two weeks of the season. The Browns and Buccaneers are up next, both challenges for the Rams.

2019 Week 1 vs CAR (23 / 39 / 186 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 0 / 0 rush)

The Rams escaped with a narrow road win, depending on their defense and running game than their prolific passing attack from 2018. Jared Goff struggled overall despite Cooper Kupp returning from injury to reform the Rams' strong trio of receivers and Todd Gurley surpassing 100 total yards on 15 touches. Malcolm Brown was the clear No.2 running back and impressed with two red zone touchdowns as Darrell Henderson barely saw the field.
