The Rams continue to lead the NFC West after Week 4 action on Sunday.

Another week down, and the Los Angeles Rams are still in possession of the NFC West. They’re 3-1 on the season, and the highest-scoring offense in the entire league. They have 142 points, and are average 35.5 points per game.

They put up 35 points on the tough Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and managed to score 40-plus points against both the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts.

I don’t know how long the Rams can keep this up, and will play both the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals over the next three weeks. They could wind up with a huge lead in the division if they manage to win those games.

Seattle was also victorious on Sunday, beating the Colts on Sunday Night Football. They moved to 2-2 on the season, with a 1-0 mark in the division. The Cardinals were also obviously victorious on the day, having beaten the 49ers.

All three teams have a 1-0 mark in the NFC West ... all having beaten the 49ers already.

Los Angeles has a point differential of plus-47. The Seahawks are sitting at plus-17, the Cardinals at minus-17 and the 49ers are at the bottom of the barrel at minus-28. Only six other teams in the league have a worse point differential.

The NFC West is really weird this year. The Seahawks have looked terrible at times and fairly decent at others. The Rams are weirdly competent on the offensive side of the ball. The Cardinals ... well, they’re pretty bad and destined for third place in the division, as far as I’m concerned.

It’s probably only going to get weirder.
