Takeaways, Returns Key to Rams Ability to Score

The Rams finished 2017 as the highest scoring team in the NFL, averaging 29.9 points per game. And they've picked up right where they left off this season, averaging 33.6 points per game.

The offense has been executing at a high level throughout the course of the season, with 14 passing touchdowns and 11 rushing touchdowns. And while the team has scored one defensive touchdown, and another TD off a blocked punt, the defense and special teams units have plenty to do with the amount of points being put up on a weekly basis.

That's because the Rams' average drive start of their own 31.6-yard line leads the NFC and ranks No. 3 in the league behind only the Texans (own 32.5) and Chargers (own 31.6).
