“We’re right on track,” head coach Sean McVay said. “We’re waiting for the final clearance on Brandin and Cooper. But looking positive in that direction.”
Both players had been trending in that direction all week, after they departed the victory over the Seahawks and did not return. They each addressed the media on Friday and were in good spirits.
“I feel amazing,” Cooks said, noting that he felt great right after the game. “It’s just one of those things that’s part of the game. Things happen. It’s unfortunate, but it’s how you respond. And it’s been a great week of just preparing and getting back to football. It’s been great.”
“Been able to go through this week and move through the protocol here, and just being smart about making sure that I’m 100 percent,” Kupp said. “And now that we’ve gotten to this point, all the way now to Friday, going out there and finally getting a day to go out there and go through practice with the guys a little bit — I wouldn’t be out there if I wasn’t sure I was 100 percent.”
Kupp self-reported that he was not feeling quite right during Sunday’s game after he had hit his head on the turf during Los Angeles’ two-minute drive just before halftime.
It’s not hard to see why the Los Angeles Rams are favored by a touchdown over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. They have the league’s top passer in Jared Goff, the No. 2 rusher in Todd Gurley and three receivers on pace for more than 1,300 yards.
Despite their struggles on defense recently, the Rams are still the team to beat in the NFC, and possibly in all of football. The Broncos are a legitimate threat with their two-headed monster in the backfield – Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman – but their secondary has been shaky, and unless Von Miller gets to the quarterback consistently, the pass rush isn’t great.
It’s highly likely the Rams move to 6-0 on the year Sunday, and that’s exactly what the experts expect to happen. According to NFL Pick Watch, 97 percent of experts are picking the Rams. Here are five people taking L.A.
As long as the Rams aren’t gashed on the ground the way they were against the Seahawks and Chargers, they should be able to win this game.
