redictions Over at Los Angeles Rams Hoodie , they have a group of analysts who put together their 2018 NFL season award predictions, and to say they’re not seeing many accolades for the Los Angeles Rams might be an understatement.With a crew of 22 voters predicting the MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive Rookie of the Year, Defensive Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year and Coach of the Year, they tallied 154 total votes. The Rams represented just one of those votes.Yes Customized Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , despite Rams Head Coach Sean McVay winning Coach of the Year in 2017 and RB Todd Gurley winning Offensive Player of the Year in 2017 and DL Aaron Donald winning Defensive Player of the Year in 2017 with QB Jared Goff acting as a dark horse for an award candidacy in 2018, the lone vote involving the Rams was one vote for Donald to repeat as DPOY.Low blow? Perhaps.That Gurley didn’t even warrant a single vote for OPOY was a surprise to me personally especially considering other candidates like Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson and New York Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr. And for Donald to only receive one vote seems awfully low.It’s just a fair reminder that as high as expectations are heading into this season, things outside of the Rams bubble aren’t nearly as certain for our success, collectively or individually.So in less than two weeks, it’s time to begin finding out whether or not those expectations have been misplaced. Through five weeks, the Los Angeles Rams have handled every challenge thrown their way.Doesn't matter if they've been involved in blowouts, shootouts or close games that come down to the final moments , the results have all been the same: another Rams win.And because of that, they are the unanimous top team in the latest AP Pro32 poll for the third consecutive week.Once again, the Rams received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL."The Rams keep finding different ways to win," Newsday's Bob Glauber said."On a day when Jared Goff isn't sharp, Todd Gurley scores three touchdowns and Sean McVay makes a gutsy fourth-down call to ice the Seahawks in a shootout win."And the Rams will look to extend their perfect start as they head to Denver to take on the Broncos.The league's other 5-0 team, the Kansas City Chiefs, stayed at No. 2. The Chiefs face their biggest test of the season so far when they travel to Foxborough, Massachusetts to face Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday night. The Patriots jumped three spots to No. 4."Showdown looms with KC Los Angeles Rams T-Shirt ," Fox Sports' John Czarnecki said.The Saints inched up a spot to No. 3 after Drew Brees became the NFL's all-time leader in yards passing in New Orleans' 43-19 rout of Washington on Monday night.The Cincinnati Bengals, who pulled off an unlikely fourth-quarter rally to beat the Miami Dolphins 27-17 on Sunday, moved up a spot to No. 5. The next two weeks could go a long way in determining how the Bengals do this season. This week, the Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a key AFC North matchup. Coach Marvin Lewis is 2-15 at home against their rivals, including the postseason.And the following week, their matchup against the Chiefs got flexed into the Sunday night slot. Cincinnati is 6-14 in prime-time games since 2011, including 0-5 on Sunday night."We'll know a lot more about the Bengals after they face the Steelers and Chiefs in the next two weeks, but this team is playing smart Los Angeles Rams Hats , winning football," said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa.The Carolina Panthers, who squeaked past the New York Giants on Graham Gano's 63-yard field goal with 1 second remaining Sunday, jumped three spots to No. 6.The Jacksonville Jaguars dropped four spots to No. 7 after getting routed in Kansas City."Injuries are taking a heavy toll on an offense struggling to overcome injury issues at running back and left tackle," The Sporting News' Alex Marvez said of the Jaguars.The Chicago Bears stayed at No. 8 during their bye week and will return to action against the reeling Miami Dolphins.The Minnesota Vikings jumped five spots to No. 9 after topping the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21 in a rematch of last season's NFC championship game.Baltimore dropped five spots to No. 10 after losing 12-9 in overtime to AFC North rival Cleveland.And in a Bay Area bummer, the Oakland Raiders, who are down four spots to No. 31, and the San Francisco 49ers Los Angeles Rams Hoodie , down one place to No. 32, round out the poll.
