Los Angeles Rams 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

Los Angeles Rams NFL Season Recap

Los Angeles Rams NFL Betting Online

The Los Angeles Rams 2023-24 NFL betting campaign came to a bitter end over Wild Card Weekend after dropping a hotly contested 24-23 decision to the Detroit Lions in Matthew Stafford’s return to the Motor City. Though the Lions former QB1 did everything he possibly could to get his squad into the win column – while taking a beating in the process – the attempt ultimately proved to be futile after Dan Campbell elected to go for the first down and the win instead of milking the clock in hopes of keeping the ball out of No. 9’s hands in the game’s closing moments.

NFL bettors that backed the Rams plus the points appreciated LA’s grit and moxie battling back when it looked like the game was going sideways a few occasions trailing 14-3 and 21-10 in the first half. They can thank stud wide receiver Puka Nacua for that with the rookie putting the team on his back and coming up with big play after big play to get Los Angeles back into the game. When it was all said and done, No. 17 reeled in 9-of-10 targets and turned them into 181 yards and a touchdown while coming up with a number of drive-extending receptions that allowed for them to continue when backed up behind the chains. The Rams got themselves a good one in the fifth round of last year’s draft!

Though the defense didn’t look like it had a prayer of keeping Jared Goff and Co. in check over the game’s first 30 minutes after the Lions put 21 on the board, the unit recovered nicely over the final 30 holding Ben Johnson’s attack to a measly field goal. A solid showing on third down aided to the cause with Detroit only converting three of its nine attempted third down tries. That being said, red zone defense once again proved to be a problem area after allowing the Lions to hit pay dirt on all three penetrations. Still, Raheem Morris should be applauded for the way he got his unit to recover regardless of his mind possibly being elsewhere currently being up for head coaching consideration.

Chins up Rams fans! Sean McVay stated it himself in the postgame presser that the team’s makeup helped revitalize his love for the game. Though the roster still has numerous holes that need mending, there are some real nice pieces to it that has the arrow pointed up for the near future. I mean let’s be real; the online sportsbook only had LA tagged with a 6.5-game season win total and expected it to be fighting with the Arizona Cardinals for the basement of the NFC West standings. LA won 10 games and finished second offering up those willing to take a shot at that occurring an attractive +500 return on investment. Either way you cut it, the 2023-24 NFL betting season was a springboard of more exciting things to come for this franchise. Hopefully McVay and his staff make it a point to work on their red zone play-calling – since to put it mildly – sucked all season long.

One only has to look at the young offensive talent in the huddle. I already raved about Nacua, but Kyren Williams needs some love as well regardless of the coaching staff underutilizing his talents against the Lions. The second-year back combined for 1,350 scrimmage yards with 1,144 of that tally coming on the ground. On top of that, he sauntered into the end zone a whopping 15 times. Keep in mind, those stats were accrued over 12 games and 11 starts! What do you think Dallas would’ve sacrificed to get that type of production from Tony Pollard this season?! Provided he can avoid the injury bug moving forward which is something he hasn’t been able to do, we could be looking at a league winner in the not too distant future!

Los Angeles Rams 2024 Offseason

Offensively, the Rams look to be in a great place that should have Stafford chomping at the bit to get back onto the gridiron entering his age-36 season. That however shouldn’t stop upper management from attempting to find his replacement by snagging a developmental quarterback that would be able to hold his own should the vet be sidelined with an in-season injury much like he has over the last handful of years. It also wouldn’t hurt to target an elite left tackle that helps extend Stafford’s career, and more importantly, keep the 16-year veteran upright and healthy.

And don’t for one second think the front office won’t jump at the opportunity to add to an already impressive wide receiver corps should the opportunity be lied before it. Cooper Kupp never got back to his old self this season, but another year removed from the injury could do the trick. Even so, it wouldn’t shock me in the least if the team took the plunge on say Rome Odunze should the Washington pass catcher fall down the draft board to the beginning of the back half where LA will be situated.

This is the second stint of the Rams in Los Angeles, where they originally played from 1946 through 1994 before moving to St. Louis, where they operated from 1995 through 2015.

In 1999, the Rams won their first Super Bowl championship in franchise history. And then, in 2021, the Rams were Super Bowl champions for the second time. Most important of all, it was the first Super title for the Los Angeles version of the Rams.

The Rams have a rich history that began in Cleveland in 1937. The Rams moved for their first stint in Los Angeles in 1946. They won one NFL championship and played in three other championship games from 1949 through 1955.

In the late 1960s, the Rams became a power in the NFL during its golden age. The famed Fearsome Foursome was one of the most dominant defensive lines in NFL history. And quarterback Roman Gabriel was a matinee idol.

Head coach George Allen put the Rams into the playoffs in 1967 and 1969. But Los Angeles flopped in the divisional round both times. Los Angles eventually fired Allen despite being in the hunt every year he was in charge.

Check Knox and John Robinson were consistent winners as head coaches of the Rams. But a Super Bowl title proved elusive.

Since their return to LA in 2016, the Rams have been consistent winners with four playoff berths in the last five years. In 2020 the Rams moved into SoFi Stadium, the most spectacular and modern of its kind in the world.
