    Heading into their week 8 matchup with the Green Bay
    Packers ,
    the Los Angeles Rams hadn’t faced much adversity in 2018. They had won the
    majority of their games without much of a challenge, and a lot of people - fans
    and media alike - were beginning to wonder how the Rams would react when faced
    with some adversity.Sunday definitively answered those questions, with 4/5 of
    Wags Rams to watch playing key roles in the victory.Todd GurleyWhile he got off
    to a slow start, Gurley came on strong in the second half and ended up with a
    monster day for the Rams. he fell just short of 200 total yards and matched the
    Rams record for consecutive games with a TD at 11. Gurley also made a
    spectacular catch in the 2nd half that kept the offensive momentum going for the
    Rams.Trevon YoungI like Wags going out on a limb here, but Young didn’t see the
    field this weekend. Matt Longacre did have a couple of QB hits though, so that’s
    something right?Aaron DonaldDonald was up to his usual shenanigans, notching 2
    sacks - making 6 in the last 8 quarters of play for the reigning defensive
    player of the year.And for everyone who believes sacks are a measurement of how
    good a pass rusher is..... Donald is on pace for 23 sacks.#HesMyMVPMark
    BarronBarron was somewhat inconsistent

    , but made possibly the biggest play of the
    game for the Rams. With his team off to a slow start and down 10-0, Barron
    absolutely stuck Packers running back Aaron Jones for a safety.The energy jump
    started the Rams offense as they immediately drove down the field and scored
    their first points of the game. Brandin CooksSimilar to Gurley, Cooks got off to
    a slow start as he and Rams QB Jared Goff couldn’t seem to get on the same page
    in the first half.Halftime adjustment proved once again to be vital for the Rams
    as the offense as a whole rebounded with a strong second half. Cooks was among
    the beneficiaries of this as he racked up a hefty 25 yard average on 3 catches.
    Suddenly, the Indianapolis Colts are creating a buzz around town.They ran the
    ball effectively Sunday against one of the league's top defenses, stymied two of
    the league's premier receivers in back-to-back weeks and ended Houston's
    nine-game win streak and Dallas' five-game win streak.Earning victories in their
    last two games could send the Colts back to the playoffs for the first time in
    four years and they could be a difficult matchup in the postseason, if they make
    it."I can absolutely feel a significant difference in the last few weeks
    compared to the beginning of the year," coach Frank Reich said when asked about
    the atmosphere around town."Not that I get out very much because I
    don't Joseph

    , but the little bit I do, the Starbucks in the morning or
    wherever it may be on a Friday night for dinner with my wife. You can feel the
    excitement by the fans and it's exciting for all of us here in the building.
    It's fun to see."It's been a long time coming for a team that seemed like an
    annual postseason lock for a 15-year span starting in 1999.When the Colts went
    8-8 and missed the playoffs in 2015, fans largely considered it an aberration
    because Andrew Luck missed nine games with injuries.Luck returned in 2016, but
    when the Colts again finished 8-8 and missed out, the debate changed. Many
    wondered if the team needed a fresh start and team owner Jim Irsay responded by
    firing general manager Ryan Grigson.Then with Luck missing all of last season to
    recuperate from surgery on his throwing shoulder, the Colts staggered to a 4-12
    mark, missed the playoffs for the third straight year and coach Chuck Pagano was
    fired.Many outsiders figured the Colts needed a major
    overhaul ,
    a perception that was reinforced by Josh McDaniels' decision to back out of a
    deal to become Indy's new head coach shortly after New England's Super Bowl
    loss, Luck's lingering rehab and Indy's 1-5 start this season.But general
    manager Chris Ballard and Reich, Indy's second choice as coach, have put
    together a winning combination by staying the course.The balanced offense
    Grigson and Pagano craved for so long finally materialized after Indy (8-6)
    found two key solutions to its offensive line woes in the draft 鈥?left guard
    Quenton Nelson and right tackle Braden Smith. Luck benefited by turning in the
    best season of his career and the Colts have overcome injuries to win seven of
    their past eight."A good leader will get guys to do what he wants them to do and
    believe in themselves whether you're 1-5 or 7-1 through the last eight games,"
    offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said Tuesday."It's obviously his leadership
    abilities and then Frank being an example of what we want players to be. What I
    mean by that, is that we want players to be the same guy every single day. ...
    Frank definitely does that because he is the same guy every day."The defense
    might be the biggest surprise.After years of languishing near the bottom of the
    league rankings, first-year coordinator Matt Eberflus has worked
    wonders.Originally hired by McDaniels and inherited by
    Reich Womens
    Greg Zuerlein Jersey
    , with a strong recommendation from Ballard, the
    Colts made Pro Bowl receivers Amari Cooper and DeAndre Hopkins look ordinary the
    past two weeks while holding NFL rushing leader Ezekiel Elliott to 87 yards
    rushing and pitching their first shutout in more than four years on
    Sunday.They've consistently put pressure on quarterbacks, forced turnovers and
    against the Cowboys delivered big play after big play with a simple philosophy
    鈥?run to the ball."Hustle is a learned skill," Eberflus said. "It is the coach's
    job to stay on it with the player to give him the feedback on every single play.
    That starts way back in OTAs (offseason team activities, all the way through
    minicamp and then through training camp every single play."Now comes the hard
    part 鈥?finishing strong.A victory over the struggling Giants, coupled with a
    loss by either Pittsburgh or Baltimore this weekend, would give the Colts
    control of their destiny in the season finale at Tennessee
    (8-6) Gerald

    , a team Luck has never lost to as a starter.It's enough to
    get everybody outside the locker room talking about potential playoff matchups
    for the first time in four years."We're playing great football," receiver T.Y.
    Hilton said after Indy's most recent victory. "Right now, you're either the
    train or you're on the tracks. Right now, we're rolling, so you better get on
    the train."Notes: Indy put starting defensive tackle Al Woods (foot) and backup
    linebacker Skai Moore on injured reserve Tuesday. Safety J.J. Wilcox was signed
    to the active roster, taking the spot of Woods. Former Indiana University star
    linebacker Tegray Scales was added to the practice squad.
