Cowboys vs. Rams: Previewing the Los Angeles offense

Sean McVay’s high-flying offense can be hard to slow down.

If you look around the NFL right now, you can see all the ways in which Sean McVay has drastically altered the landscape of the league. Not only has he taken the Rams from non-contenders to one of the league’s top teams, but now other teams are hiring the closest they can get to McVay - Matt LaFleur, Kliff Kingsbury, and Adam Gase, for example - to try and share in the success.

A big part of the apparent McVay model is the fact that he’s young and highly innovative on offense. Paired with some truly great talent on that side of the ball, McVay has created terrific offenses in his first two years in Los Angeles. In fact, the Rams offense ranks second in the NFL in total yards and points per game, fifth in passing offense, and third in rushing offense.
