Hold Green Bay to field goals

This seems to be working for St Louis well. Teams that face the Rams have no issue getting down to the red-zone, it’s once they get down there is where the Rams truly excel on defense. Last week, the Rams faced the Arizona Cardinals, who came into the game 11-12 in red-zone touchdown converges. The Rams held the Cardinals to field goals on their first five scores, bringing that to 11-17 in the blink of an eye. The Rams also used this against the Steelers offense, only allowing one touchdown and playing tough defense in the red-zone. If the Rams can keep the master (Rodgers) of touchdowns restricted and only allow field goals, it will give them a great chance to win on Sunday.
