Rams running back Todd Gurley reaches 5,000 career rushing yards

Todd Gurley, Rams

It was definitely a laborious process, but the Los Angeles Rams finally got the win over the Chicago Bears. It was a tough matchup against one of the better defenses in the NFL, but the team managed to pull through thanks to the heroics of one Todd Gurley.

He finished with 97 rushing yards, 36 receiving yards, and one touchdown over the course of the game. The win wasn’t the only thing Gurley achieved, though. The Rams celebrated an important milestone in the 25-year-old’s career.

It’s only fitting that they celebrate Gurley’s achievements on the field as he was the only big-time producing member of the Rams on offense. The offense was barely clicking throughout the game, and it’s a miracle that they even managed to snag the win away from Chicago.

Jared Goff was terribly ineffective as he finished with only 173 passing yards and no touchdowns. He also threw a terrible pick during this outing. While Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds had decent performances, nobody managed to come close to Gurley’s overall play this game.

Head coach Sean McVay is definitely happy with the way he performed during the game.

“What I loved the most about what Todd did was after we put the first carry on the ground he didn’t flinch,” McVay said, per TSN. “He came back, had some good, tough, physical runs, made some good catches out of the backfield and he was a big-time contributor tonight.”

Gurley will need to be his amazing self once more when they face the Baltimore Ravens. With a dangerous player like Lamar Jackson manning the pocket, the Rams need all the help they can get.
