The Rams have a must win on Sunday. If St Louis can’t beat the Cleveland Browns at home, then they have no chance of beating any of the tougher teams down the road and winning a playoff spot. The Rams need to play smart football on both sides and avoid the costly turnovers, all while making Cleveland forfeit a few turnovers themselves. (Getting Green Bay to turn the ball over three times was huge) The Browns have a legitimate pass offense for the first time in years, but with St Louis ranking 10th this season in passing defense, it would appear to be a great matchup for St Louis.

If the Rams can do all of these things correctly on Sunday, they will pull back to .500 and be in second place in the division.
