Rams’ Todd Gurley and Jared Goff combine for holiday gifts for offensive linemen
The Los Angeles Rams have one of the most explosive offenses in football this season, ranking second in the NFL in total offense heading into the weekend.
A big reason for that is the Rams offensive line, which has done a spectacular job protecting quarterback Jared Goff and providing running back Todd Gurley with plenty of holes to zip through.
Well, Goff and Gurley are showing their appreciation for their unsung offensive linemen, buying each of them Polaris Rangers for Christmas:

Not sure how head coach Sean McVay feels about the possibility of all of his offensive linemen off-roading, but hey, it’s the awesome thought from Goff and Gurley that counts, right?
Both Goff and Gurley were elected to the Pro Bowl this past week for the second straight year. Early on in the season, Goff was an MVP candidate, and Gurley has continued to prove that he is one of the league’s best running backs.
However, Los Angeles’ offense has fallen on hard times in recent weeks.
The Rams have lost two games in a row, most recently falling to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. During their last two games, Los Angeles has scored just 29 points total in spite of the fact that the team is averaging 32 points per game this season.
The fact that the Rams are struggling in December is not a great sign, as the playoffs are right around the corner.
Still, Los Angeles owns a record of 11-3 and can nail down a first-round bye on Sunday.
