Chicago Bears (6-4) at St. Louis Rams (4-6) Before the bye, the Rams beat the Colts in blowout fashion. However, there were a lot of fluky things going on. They scored twice on return touchdowns, twice on long touchdowns, and only had one methodical touchdown drive. This forced the Colts to abandon their game plan, [...]

Last week: 28 (+0) Record: 3-4 Kellen Clemens was essentially as you’d expect him against one of the league’s premier defenses, as he completed 15 of 31 for 158 yards and 2 interceptions in leading the Rams to 9 total points. The Rams’ defense kept them competitive against an elite team in a 14-9 loss, [...]

St. Louis Rams (2-3) at Houston Texans (2-3) It’s weird to be saying this because I held that the Texans were overrated coming into the season, but I actually think the Texans are underrated right now.

That being said, I don’t think any higher of them than [...]

Last week: 20 (-8) Record: 1-3 The Rams keep adding talent, but they never seem to get any better. Their retooled offensive line isn’t playing up to expectations. Rodger Saffold is out, while veteran Scott Wells has been awful at center. Chris Williams continues to prove he’s not a starting caliber player, while even Jake [...]

San Francisco 49ers (1-2) at St. Louis Rams (1-2) I legitimately don’t understand this line. Yes, the 49ers haven’t looked good in the past two weeks, but neither have the Rams. Week 2, the Rams were down 21-0 in Atlanta before a combination of garbage time and Falcon injuries allowed them to get it within [...]
