1. The Los Angeles Rams remaining schedule is a breeze
The Los Angeles Rams do not have a calk walk to finish the season but have the two toughest games behind them. The Rams’ remaining five games are:
- at Detroit Lions
- at Chicago Bears
- vs. Philadelphia Eagles
- at Arizona Cardinals
- vs. San Francisco 49ers
The final two games of the season, which may determine the seeding of the NFC, are absolute cake walks. Unless something drastic happens, those should be easy and resounding wins for the Rams, who have already blown out both teams.
This week’s contest against the Detroit Lions is nothing to worry about, either. Jared Goff and the offense should have some fun inside a dome and the Lions simply do not have enough pieces to overcome the Rams playmakers on defense.
The two matchups against the Bears and the Eagles are the difference makers. Out of the two, going to Chicago is going to be the toughest, especially with the cold weather and that Bears defense.
However, there is a good chance that Mitchell Trubisky might be playing in his first game back from injury that week and might not be as sharp as he has been. Throw in the fact that the Patriots were able to score 38 on the Bears in Chicago and this seems much more manageable.
The Eagles are still a dangerous team that is going to be right in the middle of a closely contested NFC East race, which is concerning for the Rams. However, with the Eagles being so banged up, the Rams should be able to get revenge on the Eagles for their loss from a year ago.
