Rams head coach Sean McVay may not want to publicly commit to rookie Cam Akers being his team’s No. 1 running back, but Akers sure looked the part last Thursday.

He recorded 171 yards rushing and caught a pair of passes for 23 yards, giving him 194 yards from scrimmage. Akers was the featured back the week before, too, when he took 21 carries for 72 yards and caught a pass for 22.
