The St. Louis Rams, 0-4, take on the Green Bay Packers, 5-0, today at historic Lambeau Field. There might not be a bigger mismatch in all of the NFL today or this season. Mismatch aside, the Rams have to start getting their season back on track today...jobs may very well depend on it.
St. Louis had a bye week to lick their wounds and recover some pride. It wasn't a bye week without costs. They lost starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher in practice last week. He tore his ACL for the second time in three years in a practice collision with Mike Sims-Walker. That leaves the Rams secondary awfully thin against the league's top pass attack led by Aaron Rodgers who makes it all look effortless.
Can the Rams pull out a win today? It's a long shot, but stranger things have happened. If the defense would tighten up and at least play at the level it did last season, the Rams can at least make a game of it. The offense will need to score points, something that isn't happening very often this season.
