For the Rams, it was just a taste of what their revamped defense could do following the additions of Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters, and Aqib Talib in the offseason. Reigning Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald even said after the game that he believes that unit can get even better with time.

Everyone already knows about what Sean McVay and the offense can do after they led the league in scoring last season. But if their defense can take that next step up as they showed against Arizona, they will be well worth their status as the new Super Bowl favorites.

As for the Patriots, no one will be writing them off even after their disappointing loss to the Jaguars. As long as they have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, they will always be in the mix one way or another in the postseason.
