St. Louis Rams: 5 Most Impactful Players During Sunday’s 27-6 Victory

1. Todd Gurley

Even with a great performance from Tavon Austin on Sunday, Gurley was still the Rams’ most impactful offensive player on Sunday, and it’s highly possible that he will be in every game the Rams win for the rest of the season. The rookie is quickly making an argument as the league’s best gamebreaking running back, and he certainly helped that case with his 71-yard touchdown run on Sunday. Though Gurley’s workload was about as limited as it’s been since he took over the starting role, with Tre Mason rotating in throughout and playing nearly the entire fourth quarter, he carried the offense to victory and continued setting a tone for the entire team. Gurley’s 566 yards in his first four starts are the most by any NFL running back since the NFL-AFL merger, and it’s becoming increasingly likely that he’ll be a Pro Bowl candidate come the end of this season.
