Give the ball to Todd Gurley

This is the biggest opportunity for the standout rookie. The Cleveland Browns are ranked dead last in rushing defense, and this will be a prime opportunity for the Rams to capitalize with Todd Gurley as he attempts his third consecutive game with 100 yards or more. Since Gurley’s debut, the Rams have gone from dead last in rushing to 13th in just a matter of two weeks. Todd Gurley will be the “X” factor in Sundays game. He can control the tempo, and get the Rams enough points to pull out a victory. I wouldn’t want to see Gurley get another 30 carries,  but 20-25 and a healthy mix of Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham could benefit against a lesser rushing defense.
