The Rams travel to Lambeau Field today to take on the 4-0 Packers. Kickoff is at 1:00 PM ET and the game airs on CBS.
I read with amusement that Rams’ Head Coach Jeff Fisher scared the hell out of some of his players this week during practice when he brandished an airhorn to help his defense work on not being pulled offsides by Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ hard count.
Rodgers is notorious for luring defenders into jumping offsides and then taking advantage of a “free play” to go deep and flummoxing the opposing team. He is, in my opinion, the most skilled QB in the NFL. (Don’t be a hater Brady fans)
The Rams are 2-2, but last Sunday they beat the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. Their other win so far this season was against the Seattle Seahawks.
I believe Green Bay will emerge the winner today. Here’s why: The Rams own the league’s worst total offense per game record, the Packers have won 11 straight home games and Rodgers hasn’t thrown an interception at home in almost 3 years.
The Pack needs to stop rookie star Todd Gurley. With a defensive line that is ranked third in the league for points allowed and yards allowed, you can check off that box.
I suspect Aaron Rodgers to take advantage of the fact that the Rams are missing Alec Ogletree, their leading tackler who suffered a broken ankle.
And since no football post would be complete without pom-poms, here’s a photo of some enthusiastic Packers fans. NOTE: The Packers do not have cheerleaders so we make do.
