The Los Angeles Rams made Sunday night against the struggling Falcons, blasting Atlanta 37-10 on the road. The offense got into a good rhythm after being unable to do anything last week as the defense welcomed several newcomers to the squad.
The end result was positive, as Jalen Ramsey, Marqui Christian and Taylor Rapp all played well in place of Marcus Peters and John Johnson. The defensive line and outside defenders were relentless too, putting pressure on Matt Ryan throughout the day.

It was a nice improvement for the big men up front. David Edwards looked good as a beginner, Rob Havenstein looked like his old self, and Brian Allen improved by excluding a few missed blocks.
