1. Los Angeles Rams

Sunday wasn’t exactly the most impressive performance for the Los Angeles Rams when seeing how they currently sit on top of the NFC with an 11-1 record, but all the team cares about is earning the tough win over the Detroit Lions.

Now that the NFC West is officially locked up, the main focus for the Rams will be on making sure they finish on top of the conference to earn home-field advantage.

Los Angeles rightfully entered the 2018 season as one of the top teams to beat in the NFC when looking at all of the talent they had to work with on both sides of the football, but the team did look a little rusty in Detroit. Between Jared Goff making some questionable decisions along with the Lions’ defense causing more problems than expected, the Rams should feel thrilled over escaping with a win in this one.

In what shouldn’t come as a surprise at all, Aaron Donald was able to record two more sacks on Matthew Stafford, and it may be time to enter the defensive superstar in the MVP conversation. Los Angeles always knew Donald was special, but seeing his impact this year has been ridiculous to witness.
