The Los Angeles Rams earned a 23-20 victory over the Denver Broncos thanks to an outstanding performance by Todd Gurley. Gurley’s 208-yard day has Robert Woods believing he’s unstoppable.
Todd Gurley enjoyed his finest hour in the NFL to date Sunday evening.
He piled up 208 yards on 28 carries and tallied two touchdowns-leading the league in the category with 11 total scores for the season. Gurley’s strong play helped propel the Rams to a 6-0 record, the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL.
But Rams wide receiver Robert Woods has implied that there is more where Sunday came from for Gurley. If you let Woods tell it, Gurley is an unstoppable force on the field.
"“I’m actually surprised that we didn’t do that last year or sooner,” Woods said of Gurley reaching 200 yards rushing. “He’s been running wild ever since I got to this team. It’s just a credit to this line, this game plan, and his work ethic. And he’s a beast. You know he’s doing well when defenders are saying, ‘Man, he’s getting five yards a touch, five yards a touch.’ He’s pretty much unstoppable right now.“That’s what happens when we’ve got TG in the backfield.”"
Woods may have a point. Gurley through six games has 623 yards rushing and nine rushing touchdowns. The Rams offense has everything you would want if you had to describe a balanced attack: a franchise quarterback in Jared Goff, All-Pro running back in Gurley and a three-headed wide receiver trio in Woods, Brandin Cooks, and Cooper Kupp. With the quarterback and receivers utilized properly in Rams head coach Sean McVay’s offense, Gurley makes the Rams even more dangerous with a punishing ground attack while also being a contributor as a receiver.
With all three components of the Rams offense clicking, Woods claim that Gurley is unstoppable makes sense. With ten games remaining, it will be interesting to see how NFL defense will attempt to counter Gurley and the Rams.
