STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Rams beginning 11-day road trip that starts with cross-country flight to Jacksonville and continues across Atlantic to face division rival Arizona in London. Team will spend four days in Jacksonville following Sunday’s game. … Rams go for first 3-0 road start since 2001. … Rams dropped eight of last 10 played east of Mississippi River. … RB Todd Gurley leads NFL with seven touchdowns, one more than Jaguars rookie Leonard Fournette. … Rams QBs coach Greg Olson returns to Jacksonville for first time since being fired as offensive coordinator in middle of last season. … Rams PK Greg Zuerlein is NFL’s leading scorer with 60 points. … Jaguars have three wins by 20 or more points, including last week’s 30-9 victory at Pittsburgh. Team had three such wins in previous seven seasons. … Jaguars have NFL-worst 9-28 record at home (not including five London games) since 2011. They have dropped eight of last nine at EverBank Field. … Coming off lopsided victory at Pittsburgh, Jags haven’t won back-to-back games since last October. They whiffed twice while trying to back up huge wins this season. … Jaguars haven’t beaten West Coast team in Jacksonville since 2010. Jags have dropped four straight against opponents from opposite coast, losing to San Diego three times and to Oakland once. Combined score in those losses: 126-61. … Fantasy Tip: Gurley and Fournette are must starts. Expect Rams WR Sammy Watkins, held without catch last week for second time in career, to bounce back even though he’s facing standout CB Jalen Ramsey.
