Matthew Stafford puts the Rams on his back

Stafford had another vintage performance throwing three touchdown passes as Los Angeles pulled away in the fourth quarter. This was for a 36-19 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Rams have won three straight for the first time since 2021, when they won the Super Bowl. They are one of three teams at 6-6 in the NFC and in a race for the last two wild card spots.

Since returning from a thumb injury that caused him to miss 1 1/2 games, Stafford has eight TD passes and two interceptions in the Rams' last three games.

When asked about the team's performance Coach Sean McVay said, "We came to life in the most pivotal moments,” “If we continue to play this way, then you continue to have conversations where you’re relevant to maybe earn an opportunity to play afterwards.”

Stafford passed for 279 yards and three touchdowns, including one to Puka Nacua, one to Demarcus Robinson, and one to Cooper Kupp. They didn't allow a sack against the league's top-ranked defense, the Browns, in their outstanding performance.

Kyren Williams added 88 yards on 21 carries, including a 1-yard TD late in the fourth quarter. I think that Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams have shown since returning from their bye week that this may not be another rebuilding season for them after all
