    This game is far more important for NO than it is for LAR.

    LAR's division is possibly the worst in the league, they could go 7-9 and win that division as it stands.

    Meanwhile, NO's division is possibly the toughest to win with all 4 teams looking at least competitive. Their margin for error is so much smaller than LAR's, that they have to win this game. NO has put up so many yards and points, but against bad competition.

    Rams are 0-2 with losses at Cleveland and then at home against the Packers

    Passing Yards By Game:  232 - 235

    Rushing Yards By Game: 49 - 40

     

    The running game needs to get going, however New Orleans has been fantastic against the run allowing 66 total rush yards. To me that's the key, LAR needs to keep Devy/Jenkins/Miller off the field. Knox has to get 80+ yards on the ground to give the Rams the best chance to win.

    The key for NO in my opinion is to not hurt themselves. Don't kill drives with penalties and avoid turnovers. If that offense keeps firing on all cylinders, the Rams don't stand a chance in this one.

    Man I can't believe the Rams could be starting 0-3 and STILL be in the division lead

    I can't believe that this exact scenario is more likely than not to happen next week.

     

    We couldn't catch up to the Rams so apparently the rest of the division got together and pulled them down in to the muck with us or something.

    As a counter point, we've gone up against Brannon Austin and Marcus Williams, who aren't exactly world beaters. Can't say we've really been tested so far, although the defensive line's resurgence with Woods in the mix has been a breath of fresh air in this defense.

    Knox is a 79 Rookie who's struggled so far. He is key for LAR, but I'd say you're still in position to keep him contained.

    My heart says this is a walk over for the Saints at home, coming off two total blowout wins. My head says that maybe this is the game that the Rams get a few folks back healthy and start to play like the Rams we know. 

     

    I’m going with the heart: Rams 14-28 Saints

    I think the Saints continue to roll here.  Rams should put up a fight though, and wouldn't be surprised if Murphy pulls a rabbit out of his ass and gets the Rams their first win.

    This is the sixth time these two teams have met, but only the second in the 24-team era (let alone the 32-team era). They last met in 2019, a 42-17 Rams win; the Rams are 4-1 overall in the series. 

     

    These two teams have played almost opposite schedules so far. The Rams lost close to a pair of teams that could both make the playoffs, and the Saints destroyed a pair of teams that might both pick in the top ten. (The fact that they've cruised to victory is meaningfully different from merely winning both games.) The Rams have one of my favorite defenses and the Saints have one of my favorite offenses, so this ought to be a fun one.
