After back-to-back disappointing losses, the Los Angeles Rams get a bit of a relief game on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
Things are not looking as promising for the Los Angeles Rams right now than they were a few weeks ago. After defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in what some people call the greatest regular season game of all time, the Rams have been a shell of themselves.
The last three weeks have not been pretty for the Rams. Los Angeles looked sluggish in the team’s win over the Detroit Lions, which was a much closer game than the final scoreline indicated.
That was viewed as a trap game that the Rams escaped and there was no reason to panic about the team. However, Los Angeles followed that with a terrible offensive performance in Chicago on Sunday Night Football.
However, the Bears are a playoff team and the Rams had to go into Chicago and play in prime Chicago weather. The second loss of the year was understandable.
Last week is a different story. Jared Goff looked horrendous and the Rams reignited the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff hopes.
The first seed, although it is still obtainable, is practically out of the window and now the Rams’ focus has to be getting momentum for the playoffs. Luckily, the team has the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16.
Here is how we see the game going down.

The Rams have shot themselves in the foot the last two weeks and are no longer my Super Bowl pick. They head to the road to face the awful Arizona Cardinals. There are so many questions facing the Rams now they don’t deserve my confidence anymore. Out of spite: 25-10.

I think it is big that the Rams play well this game they need to get back on track for the playoffs. The Rams need to run the ball a little more to take some the pressure off Jared Goff and the defense will need to step up and get some pressure on Josh Rosen.

Safe to say, the Rams have been struggling ever since their bye week. They just have not been their same dynamic selves.
Quarterback Jared Goff has been a shell of himself and hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in his last 2 games. Running back Todd Gurley is also dealing with a knee issue.
I think this game will be a battle of attrition as both teams will struggle offensively. The Cardinals defense is underrated, but the Rams will do enough to squeak out a win. Goff will lead a game-winning drive that will lead to a game-ending field goal.
Jason Reed (22-4): 35-10, Los Angeles Rams
I don’t think the Los Angeles Rams are going to struggle in this contest at all. I understand that the last two games are a serious reason for concern, but the Rams are way too talented to lose to the Arizona Cardinals, who would benefit from losing.
This game won’t be close. The Rams will come out, win this game by a large margin and hope that the Saints can lose out.
