The St. Louis Rams haven’t played the Kansas City Chiefs in regular season play since 2010. The Chiefs walked away from the Edward Jones Dome victors that day, besting the Rams 27-13. But these aren’t Steve Spagnuolo’s Rams...and they’re not Todd Haley’s Chiefs.
Outcome: Rams win, 24-17

sergey606 [@thatsergey]Awesome, Rams got a win against a division rival and the defending Super Bowl champs! However, continuing winning is a huge part of becoming a winner - you're welcome, Trent Dilfer.
On to the prediction: Jamaal Charles should get contained, the Rams have managed to bottle almost all stud RBs except Murray, but no one can contain him. The key to the Rams defense will be LB play and covering KC's TEs. Rams offense has been better than expected and we'll see if this continues. On paper I can see the Rams winning 24-17, but this team manages to disappoint its fans somehow. So my prediction is: Chiefs 27, Rams 21 - Rob Riggle gets really drunk and passes out half naked in the Chiefs parking lot after the game.
The Chiefs are ranked third in rushing yardage, while ranked 15th in rushing yards allowed. The Rams, in contrast are 18th and 27th, respectively. Once again, the Rams face a backfield hydra in Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis and Alex Smith. The St. Louis squad has been adept at slowing one rushing threat while being hacked by another. With Kansas City relying heavily on their rushing attack, the Rams must find a way to stop all of the runners. If they can do that, they win as the Chiefs passing game doesn't strike fear into anyone.
These are two evenly matched teams that will both try to run the ball. Both will succeed to a point, but the better run defense will win this game. It will be close.
Bold Prediction- Zac Stacy gets the start for the Rams
Outcome: Rams win, 21-17

Brandon Bate [@NoPlanB_]The first question that comes to mind when I contemplate whether or not the Rams can win this game is: Can the Rams’ defense limit the potential damage the Chiefs’ run game can cause? Heading into Week 8, the Rams have allowed more 20+ yard runs  than any team in the NFL. Enter Jamaal Charles, a running back who can chew up some serious yards if allowed to get outside the tackles.
The Rams, however, have made adjustments and are vastly improved in this regard. Six of the aforementioned nine 20+ yard runs came before the team’s Week 4 bye. Gregg Williams and his defense still need to be prepared for a heavy dose of the Charles/Knile Davis show, as the Chiefs - who rank 30th in the league in passing yards - don’t rely on putting the ball in the air to move downfield.
It’ll be a similar game plan for the Rams [offensively] this Sunday. And we could be witnessing the "three headed monster" rushing attack - Zac Stacy, Tre Mason, and Benny Cunningham - in full force. Head Coach Jeff Fisher, leaving a bit of uncertainty for his opponent, said earlier this week, "It’ll be a week-to-week thing. Zac could get 25 carries this week." He and Brian Schottenheimer have also noted that they’ll roll with the "hot hand" approach later in games.
My guess is that we’re in store for more of the same from the Rams: proving efficient on offense early, scoring touchdowns instead of field goals, and getting up by a couple of score. Then they’ll do what they do...allow the opponent to get back in the game, keeping it within reach until the games final play.
Something’s got to give though, and I doubt it’ll be due to another weekend filled with special teams highlight-reel plays. The Rams defense - specifically the front four - shows up big this Sunday, and is the true difference-maker in this one. "Sack city" takes a 241-mile bus trip to Arrowhead this weekend.
Outcome: Rams Win, 27-23
