The St Louis Rams may be consistently inconsistent, but their play has steadily improved over the last few weeks. They played very well defensively in the last two games against two very good offenses. Then last week in Arizona, their offense took a huge step in the right direction when Todd Gurley exploded for over 100 yards in the fourth quarter alone. Tavon Austin also got involved heavily with two touchdowns, something fans would like to see more of. Nick Foles threw for three touchdowns and did not turn the ball over once.

The offensive line also made a huge improvement. For the first time in four weeks, the offensive line actually made blocks. Gurley actually had holes to run through. Besides that, this line is starting to excel in pass protection, something we figured would never happen given the type of men drafted.

So The Rams will take on a tough Green Bay team who hasn’t lost in Green Bay in over a decade. (exaggeration, but boy does it feel like it) There are so many ways that the Packers can beat a team. They have the third best rushing attack, an MVP quarterback, and a much improved defensive front at their disposal. So how can St Louis come out on top?
