The St. Louis Rams are nearing the beginning of the Nick Foles era, after the team acquired the quarterback from the Philadelphia Eagles in a blockbuster trade back in March. St. Louis is also handing the keys to second-year running back Tre Mason, who’s 765 rushing yards on 179 carries gave the organization enough confidence to trade away Zac Stacy to the New York Jets.
They’ll have a fine opportunity to make a run within the division, as the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals are going through some changes that may have them vulnerable for a takeover. The 49ers have a new head coach and have had to rework the majority of their defense after seeing some of their key veterans retire. The Cardinals lost their defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who is now the head coach of the New York Jets, and that was the team’s leading unit, especially when quarterback Carson Palmer went down.
