The St. Louis Rams are 4-6 and are coming off a bye week. The Rams are in last place in the NFC West but are the Rams finally catching a break with their schedule?
The Rams will host the Chicago Bears this Sunday. The Bears will not have starting quarterback Jay Culter playing this Sunday. Even though Josh McCown has done a decent job as the backup quarterback, the Rams defense has shut down better quarterbacks.
Then the Rams will travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers. Colin Kaepernick is struggling this season and the Rams tied the 49ers last year in San Francisco. The Rams lost earlier this year to the 49ers and it wasn’t a close game. If the Rams can find a way to beat the 49ers, they will be 6-6 with 4 games left.
The final 4 games are at Arizona, home against New Orleans and Tampa Bay, then the Rams travel to Seattle for the final game of the season. If the Rams can go 3-1, they will finish 9-7. That will give the Rams their first winning season since 2003. Even if the Rams don’t make the playoffs, a winning record could create excitement for the Rams in 2014. That positive momentum might get the city of St. Louis and the Rams organization to come together to get a new stadium to keep the Rams in St. Louis for decades to come. It all starts this Sunday.
