Two of the Los Angeles Rams best offensive weapons, Cooper Kupp and Kyren Williams, have been like two ships in the night this season. They have played in two games together so far. They played together against the Philadelphia Eagles and coincidentally against the Arizona Cardinals six weeks ago. Now, this week against the Cardinals the two frigates reunite.
It couldn’t come at a better time, the Rams offense has looked lost at sea. They have scored just over 14 points per game since the last Cardinals game. And that game was the last time Kyren and Kupp were on the field together and the last time the Rams offense looked halfway competent. Both players had their best games of the season. Kupp caught a touchdown as well as six more passes totaling 148 total yards receiving. Williams ran for 7.9 yards per attempt on 20 carries and added a touchdown.
Kupps presence hasn’t been a deciding factor since that game and the Rams rushing attack has remained an afterthought. Williams remains the leading rusher despite starting the year behind Cam Akers on the depth chart and missing the last four weeks due to injury.
The Los Angeles Rams game against the Cardinals will serve as a good litmus test that will reveal what the remainder of their season will look like offensively.
