NEW YORK — Comfortable on the road? Remember, this is a Rams team that, during 2016, went from St. Louis to Oxnard to Irvine to Thousand Oaks. Their shirts spent more time folded than hanging.

Life on the road is all about a good mindset, and the Rams seem to have it right now. They’re 3-0 on the road this season going into Sunday’s game against the New York Giants in New Jersey. New England, also at 3-0, is the NFL’s only other team without a road loss this season, and that’s pretty good company.

“I don’t know why or what it is,” quarterback Jared Goff said, “but that, ‘Yourself against the world, we’re all we’ve got, we’re all we need’ type of thing is part of our mantra and it brings us together. We’ve played well on the road, so we enjoy it. It’s definitely not a disadvantage of us, we don’t know.”

The Rams haven’t played at the Coliseum since Oct. 8. By the time they return next week to play Houston, they will have spent 35 days away. That includes a road game at Jacksonville, a “home” game against Arizona in London, a bye week and another long flight to play the Giants.

Perhaps fatigue will come into play later in this season, but right now the the Rams are thriving away from home, and recent history shows they should pile up as many road victories as possible.
