Week 3 at Los Angeles Rams
Are the Rams being over-hyped? Quite possibly, but this is going to be a tough game because there will be some pressure on the Chargers to win the battle for Los Angeles.
The Rams came out of nowhere last season with rookie head coach Sean McVay, becoming one of the most dynamic offensive teams in the league. With all of that offense returning in 2018, the team now has a defense.
Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Michael Brockers, Aqib Talib abd Marcus Peters. Let’s be honest, that’s going to be a challenge for any team to take on this season, particularly when you throw in the fact that the unit will be coached by Wade Phillips.
Though this won’t be much of a road game for the Chargers, it is listed as one. The Rams lead the all-time series 6-5, but these two teams haven’t played against each other in Los Angeles since October 1991.
This test comes early in the season and a Chargers win would likely be considered an upset. Still, it will be a great opportunity to show the rest of the league they are for real.
