WEEK 5 GRADES

The undefeated Rams' Week 5 grade is in, and according to Bleacher Reports' Kristopher Knox, the Rams leave their first divisional road game with a passing grade despite trouble on defense stopping the run.

Here's some of what Knox had to say about the 5-0 Rams:

"Thanks primarily to the offense, which racked up 468 total yards against Seattle, the Rams sit at 5-0 and in control of the NFC West. Hopefully for them, that offense can get fully healthy in time for next week's matchup with the Broncos."
