NFL 2014: Are You Ready For Next Season?

New, comments
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It's never to early to look forward for St. Louis Rams fans. In 2014, the schedule for the Rams features six playoff teams from 2013/14, including the NFC championship duo of Seattle and San Francisco. They also get - at St. Louis - the Denver Broncos - who played in the Super Bowl...

San Diego looks like a tough team, and they are part of an AFC West line up that includes the return of the Governor's Cup with the Rams playing IN Kansas City. Then the NFC East - the worst division in the NFL for 2013 - comes calling. High flying Philadelphia is an away game for the Rams, as are the Washington Redskins. The Redskins game should be interesting, since the last few times these two teams played have been extraordinarily physical contests.

The game I reeeeeally want the Rams to win is Dallas. They'll finally visit St. Louis, and Jeff Fisher will get a chance to show they can keep a Dallas running back from running for a ba-zillion yards in a game...

When it comes down to it, all the games outside the NFC West are an under-card for the Rams. In the toughest division in the NFL, St. Louis can't stagger and lose to marginal foes like they did in 2013. The West will leave them wanting and waving if they don't keep pace early in the 2014 season.

So which games - even though we don't have the "when" part just yet - are the ones you're looking forward to most? Which games will be key match ups? Yes, San Francisco is at the top of my list, even above the Dallas game. Seattle will be tough, but I guarantee they aren't looking forward to playing the Rams either. Arizona is still going to be the "wild card" in the NFC West, so they can't be taken lightly. It's a challenging year on the horizon for Jeff Fisher and the Rams, and I can't wait for the 2014 season to begin. How about you?
