Give Todd Gurley More Carries: Yes They Did

The Rams rushed Gurley 19 times in Sundays win. With 146 rushing yards on the day, it proved to be quite a smart thing to do. The Rams needed to get the tenth overall pick involved, and they did. End of story. Gurley may have struggled in the first few quarters, but with every run he seemed to get more and more comfortable in the scheme. This was proven to be true when he rushed for over 100 yards in the fourth quarter alone, something that has not been done in a very long time for St Louis.
