The NFC West is arguably the toughest division in the NFL right now. The San Francisco 49ers went from an afterthought to becoming NFC Champs before losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LII. Seattle had an 11-5 season and always seem to be in the hunt for a playoff berth, while the Arizona Cardinals had a rebuilding year they brought in some intriguing pieces the past couple years and figure to be competitive at the very least.

Despite the challenge the Rams face to this upcoming season, wide receiver Robert Woods believes the team has what it takes to “take over” the NFC West  

“We know they have some weapons on offense and defense. San Francisco’s feeling very confident after their run last year. But that just makes us more hungry. We were there before. We had a loss. So we know what it takes to get back on top and really just take over that whole division.”

The Rams went 9-7 last season and missed the playoffs after reaching the Super Bowl and losing to the New England Patriots the year before. Even with the loss of impact guys such as RB Todd Gurley,  WR Brandin Cooks, ILB Corey Littleton, DE Dante Fowler, etc. the Rams still have core players such as QB Jared Goff and DT Aaron Donald. They also added some intriguing pieces such as RB Cam Akers, OLB Terrell Lewis, DT A’Shawn Robinson and more to fill its roster holes via the draft and free agency. 

The Rams also have Woods himself who has been a key contributor on the field when healthy. In 2019, he put up 1,134 yards and two touchdowns with a career-high 90 catches in 15 games. Woods figures to see an increase in production as Goff will have to rely more heavily on him and Cooper Kupp this season.
