From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): Some credit goes to the Panthers defense, but Goff wasn't the same quarterback he was in the first half of 2018 on Sunday. He's not an automatic start against the Saints in Week 2.

Week 2: vs New Orleans Saints

All QB vs NO

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Following a disappointing display in Super Bowl 53, head coach Sean McVay got the Rams' offense back on track in the 2019 season opener. Los Angeles posted 30 points on the road against the Carolina Panthers' expectedly-strong defense. One notable difference between the offense that posted a meager 3 points in the Super Bowl and the attack that lit up the scoreboard for 30 points to start 2019 was the reintroduction of Cooper Kupp to the receiving corps. Kupp tore his ACL midway through the 2018 season, which ultimately eroded the passing game's efficiency. Since the start of the 2018 season, quarterback Jared Goff has averaged 9.11 yards-per-attempt in games Cooper Kupp played, as opposed to a pedestrian 7.32 yards-per-attempt in games without Kupp. Los Angeles' week one passing numbers were underwhelming, in large part due to the conservative play-calling after the team opened up a 16-3 lead early in the 3rd quarter. Jared Goff only passed for just 183 yards on mostly-unadventurous attempts. The return of Cooper Kupp also positively impacts other wide receivers in this offense, as both Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks post more impressive numbers when Kupp is active. The tight ends in Los Angeles' offense are capable but unreliable: Tyler Higbee caught a touchdown in the season opener, suitable for half of his total from the entire 2018 season. The Rams' offensive line is in a period of transition, following the departure of two starters from last season. This turnover is cause for concern, as these new starters Brian Allen and Joseph Noteboom are clear weak links in the trenches. Sean McVay's schematic genius will likely overcome the ineptitude up front for the Rams, and overall Los Angeles is expected to have one of the league's strongest passing attacks once again in 2019. New Orleans outscored Houston in a thrilling 30-28 shootout at home in week one. Deshaun Watson finished the game with 268 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. This strong stat line is in large part thanks to the mind-boggling talent of DeAndre Hopkins, as well as an ultra-impressive 54-yard reception by Will Fuller. As a whole, New Orleans' pass defense was strong aside from a few chunk plays. One notable strength of the defense was their ability to get pressure on Watson throughout the game. The Saints registered 6 sacks and 11 hits on the quarterback in week one, good enough for 1st and 2nd in the NFL, respectively. Behind the intense pass rush, New Orleans sports a strong group of pass defenders. Marshon Lattimore has established himself as one of the NFL's best cornerbacks over the last season, and week one was no different. At safety, Marcus Williams shined in week one following a sophomore slump in coverage duties. A matchup with Los Angeles offers little reprieve following a tough battle with Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins, but the Saints' performance against the pass in week one does little to indicate they are a team that will struggle to defend the pass in 2019.

Recent Game Summaries

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.
