The 1-1 St. Louis Rams and the 1-1 Pittsburgh Steelers meet today in the Edward Jones Dome to leave one team on the better side of .500 and the other facing some daunting questions.
With the Rams bracing for Le'Veon Bell's reinstatement after a two-game suspension to buttress one of the league's best offenses, St. Louis' defense will be stressed more than at any point thus fat this season.
On the other hand, the Rams are likely to introduce the 10th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft to his first game action today with Todd Gurley a "gametime decision" that may have been made well before gametime.
It's an exciting setup for the Rams with a big opportunity in Week 3 with the Week 6 bye looming. Sitting at 2-1 headed out for a two-game road stretch is miles different than leaving home 1-2.
For today though, it's a battle of the backs between Bell and Gurley.
