Just cool running.Todd Gurley heated up the offense with a career afternoon to power the Rams through the bitter cold for a 23-20 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.It was nothing but smooth sledding for the team from the land of sunshine.The 25 degrees at kickoff marked the second-coldest at home for the Broncos during a contest held in September or October. The coldest for this time of year was 22 degrees on Oct. 12 Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey , 1969, against Oakland."It's kind of cold," said Gurley, who rushed for a career-best 208 yards and two TDs. "It don't really matter. At the end of the day, just got to go out there."No surprise, the Rams relied on a steady dose of Gurley as they improved to 6-0 in sending the Broncos (2-4) to their fourth straight loss. Gurley carried the ball 28 times and averaged 7.4 yards per carry.On a day when players could see their breath, Gurley and many others didn't bundle up. No long sleeves for him. He did wear a ski mask under his helmet.His job complete, Gurley layered up to greet the conditions by putting on a hooded sweat shirt, heavy jacket and a stocking cap."Weather is weather," receiver Brandin Cooks said. "We knew we had to come and do our job the best that we can."One slight brain freeze: Coach Sean McVay regretted some of his decisions."I thought I put us in some horrible spots throughout the game White Robert Woods Jersey , really getting impatient, forcing things that weren't there," McVay lamented. "The players bailed me out, finding a way to win."The Rams don't normally take the field in these kinds of conditions. To prepare, quarterback Jared Goff tried out gloves on both hands in pregame and went with them during the contest."It's kind of a give-and-take and I felt more comfortable with them," explained Goff, who was 14 of 28 for 201 yards and one interception. "We are from Los Angeles, where it is hot and it's cold here. Having to go through that, feeling the cold, getting through that with a win is great. Once we got out there and were moving around Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , it wasn't much of a factor."Just another day at the office."A new experience," Rams defensive lineman Michael Brockers said. "I think we kind of showed the world, that just because you're from L.A., you can play in any kind of weather as long as you mentally prepare for it."Offensive lineman Rob Havenstein played at Wisconsin, where cold-weather games happen with frequency. But that was a few seasons ago. He's grown accustomed to the California sun since being selected by the Rams in the second round of the 2015 draft."I'm not as hardened as I once was in Wisconsin," cracked Havenstein, whose work up front with his fellow linemen allowed the Rams to finish with 270 yards on the ground. "This wasn't too cold. The wind wasn't breezy or anything like that. It wasn't snow flying down. It was cool getting in a little snow game."About that, tailback Malcolm Brown doesn't consider this a snow game even if there were a few flurries. Being from Texas, he wants his first snow game to be filled with plenty of accumulation."It was fun anyway," said Brown Youth Austin Blythe Jersey , who finished with 24 yards on five carries. "I'll play in any weather, as long as I'm playing ball."The cooler conditions didn't bother defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Then again, he's from Pittsburgh."Good football weather," Donald said. "It just reminded me of home. That's all it did."After the game, Gurley was asked how it felt to pick up chunks of yardage on virtually every carry."It's cool," Gurley said.A fitting response. Sean McVay punctuated the Rams’ victory over Seattle with profanity.Unfortunately for McVay, a CBS camera caught his bad word. McVay’s mother was not happy with him.He got an earful from her.The Rams coach revealed his chastising during Monday’s news conference when he was asked a question about Aaron Donald and Marcus Peters being upset during the game.“I trust that our players will learn from that,” McVay told reporters. “It’s not just the players. There’s a lot of things that I can control better with regards to how I respond to certain things, whether it’s my language, where my mom was upset with me about something that came up at the end of the game White Ndamukong Suh Jersey , but those are the kind of things that we’ll all learn from. I think the most important thing is, when you look at something, if you say, ‘Is that the type of football team, is that the type of response that we want to represent with how we want to operate moving forward?’ All of our guys know what it looks like to do right, and we’ll continue to put our arm around guys and figure out a way to do it together and be better moving forward. Fortunately, you don’t have to learn truly the hard way.”
