Daily Dose: Who is L.A.'s Super Bowl LIII X-factor?

Each weekday, will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Tuesday, January 22nd about your Los Angeles Rams.


THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT's David Carr picked six quarterback-head coach duos that could be 'the next Brady-Belichick duo.' Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have won five Super Bowls in New England and played in eight world championship games. As quarterback Jared Goff and head coach Sean McVay prepare to take on Brady and Belichick in Super Bowl LIII, Carr lists L.A.'s duo as a candidate to take the throne.

2) Sean McVay and Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams: "In two years under McVay's watchful eye, Goff has undergone a makeover on all levels. He looks nothing like the kid who threw more interceptions than touchdowns and stumbled to a 63.6 passer rating as a rookie in 2016. A Pro Bowler for the second straight season, Goff has done well in intense environments and has handled adversity with aplomb. Just look at Sunday's NFC Championship Game. After struggling out of the gate, the young passer was resilient and put his team on his back."

Wide receiver Robert Woods played a big part in L.A.'s Super Bowl season, recording at least 60 yards receiving in 14-straight games in his first 1,000-yard season. On Sunday, ESPN's Matt Bowen listed Woods as L.A.'s X-factor entering Super Bowl LIII.

X factor: Woods caught 86 passes for 1,219 yards during the regular season. He also added six scores in a system that fits his skill set. Look for Woods to show up running intermediate cuts off the Rams' early-down play-action concepts, while also creating separation on deep crossing routes. And when Goff can throw in rhythm, Woods will find the open voids in the coverage to move the sticks. He's a slick route runner with the toughness to make plays inside the numbers versus both zone and man coverage.

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reported some good news for any fans headed to Mercedes-Benz Stadium for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. McClure says the 'Fan First Menu Pricing' at the two-year-old stadium will be in effect, even for the big game. 

"Just like at a Falcons game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, concessions will feature 12 popular food and beverage items -- including $5 cheeseburgers, $3 nachos with cheese, and $2 refillable soft drinks -- at lower prices than any other major professional American sports venue, plus without tax for easier concession-stand transactions."
