2021 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Rams

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Los Angeles Rams rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 16 roundup for the Rams in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 6

How hot is Sean McVay's seat: 1. Cold seat

McVay is 52-25 and has won two division titles and an NFC championship since the Rams named him as the youngest head coach in modern NFL history in 2017. In McVay's five seasons, the Rams have made the playoffs three times. And they are well on track to earn a fourth playoff berth and potentially a third division title under McVay this season. There's no reason to think he would not be more than welcome to return in 2022, even if the Rams fall short of a trip to a hometown Super Bowl in February. -- Lindsey Thiry

NFL.com -- Rank: 4

Survive and advance. The Rams worked their way through the COVID-19 week from hell, then found a way in a 20-10 win over the Seahawks on Tuesday at SoFi Stadium. The offensive star, once again, was Cooper Kupp, who caught nine passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns, setting a Rams single-season record with 122 receptions on the season. The Offensive Player of the Year Award should come down to Kupp and Jonathan Taylor -- no other candidates should bother to apply. Credit also must go to the defense, which held Russell Wilson to 156 yards in a must-win game for Seattle. The Rams now find themselves tied with the Cardinals atop the NFC West with three games to play. This should be fun.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 4

It wasn't easy against the Seahawks, but they found a way. The defense came up big in that game. Can Cooper Kupp be stopped?

USA Today -- Rank: 5

WR Cooper Kupp, who leads the NFL with 122 catches for 1,625 yards and 14 receiving TDs through 14 games, is in position to break some major records ... with a legitimate shot to be the league's first 2,000-yard receiver.

The Athletic -- Rank: 3

Our gift to you: A deep playoff run for Matthew Stafford. Isn't that the reason the Rams traded for him in the first place? The Rams aren't perfect, but no one in the NFC is. If you need a quarterback to root for in the playoffs, maybe it should be the one who is looking for his first postseason win in his 13th NFL year.
