For the second week in a row, the Los Angeles Rams put on a scoring clinic by beating the Dallas Cowboys 35-30. The Rams, coming off of 10 days rest after playing the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, were able to score on almost every drive with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley once again leading the way.
Gurley managed to pile on 215 yards yards from scrimmage and scored a touchdown, earning himself NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for his performance. However, the most impressive performance may have belonged to placekicker Greg Zuerlein. Zuerlein hit all seven of his field goal attempts as well as his two extra point attempts for a total of 23 points.
According to Rams, the kicker was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week:
23 total points.

Los Angeles’ backfield tandem of Goff and Gurley has been able to consistently move the chains through the first four weeks, setting up plenty of opportunities for Zuerlein. The 29-year-old has not disappointed as he has yet to miss a field goal or extra point attempt.
With the offense firing on all cylinders, it is clear that Sean McVay was the perfect hire for a young Rams team. The offense gets a tough test against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5, but should still be expected to put points on the board.
