Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears' defense have already shut down some useful offenses en route to a surprising 5-1 start this season. They stopped Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5 before stifling Teddy Bridgewater and the Carolina Panthers last week.
That defensive success didn’t show signs of sustainability on Sunday. In fact, it left the game to the secondary and that led to an implosion with the Bucs setting a franchise record in points scored in a 55-40 victory.
The LA Rams are a very strong football team on paper. They have talent on each side of the ball and the ability to win when it matters.
Another NFL season has been and gone, finishing off with Super Bowl LIII. The excitement of the Super Bowl often overshadows the NFL Honours Awards announced Saturday evening, where the league comes together to celebrate the most outstanding players and another year of excellence in the NFL.
New England Patriots beat Los Angeles Rams 13-3 to win Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Sunday night. Sony Michel’s second half touchdown was enough to guide the Patriots to victory after a defence-dominated first half left New England leading 3-0 at half-time. The Rams were unable to get any offence going and their defence was worn out by the relentlessness of the Patriots’ run game.
So, whilst the odds favour the MVP going to the likes of Brady, Goff or even Donald, do not be surprised if one of Michel, White, Gurley or Anderson take home the honour after running their team to victory.
Rounding up the latest NFL action.
Greg, Stephen and Jack predict the award winners.
Will Goff and Gurley carry the Rams to a division title?
