Los Angeles Rams At New York Jets: Week 10 Win-Loss Predictions

New, comments

Can the Los Angeles Rams stop the slide by traveling cross-country and beating the New York Jets at MetLife this Sunday? The TST staff make their predictions...

After getting off to a hot 3-1 start on the year, the Los Angeles Rams (3-5) have fallen in four straight and find themselves flying across the country to take on the New York Jets (3-6) in Week 10.

This game, to many, won’t be viewed as “must see TV” and will most likely come down to which quarterback turns the ball over the least amount of times. Through nine weeks of play, Jets’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rams’ QB Case Keenum lead the NFL in interceptions, with 13 and 11 respectively.

It goes without saying that both of these teams find themselves in much different spots in the standings than they’d expected to be just a few months ago. Maybe a win this weekend, for either team, can spark an about-face and keep hopes of making something out of 2016 alive.

Can the Rams secure victory at MetLife this Sunday, or will a fifth straight loss force Jeff Fisher to do something he clearly has no intention of doing...start Jared Goff?

The Rams are playing the Jets who happen to be one of the worst teams in league. Their QB is gifting interceptions and their secondary is a weak link. The Rams defense will do just enough to help the Rams win this week.

Prediction: Rams win, 17-10

As happens about once a year, and usually after a string of frustrating losses, the Rams will blow someone out on the road. Keenum will have a record-setting game, and Fisher will take the podium afterward with glee.

Prediction: Rams win, 35-13

Rams offense will continue stalling out. No matter who plays QB for the Jets, the Rams defense will hold their end up once again by scoring a TD. As is customary for Jeff Fisher, just when things look as bad as can be, he usually responds with emphatic wins. Not this time. Tough loss to extend the Rams losing streak.

Prediction: Jets win, 20-17

The Rams are not a good football team, but thankfully, neither are the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick (and whoever sporadically replaces him) continues to make his case as one of the worst QBs in the league and the Jets defense still can't get it together. The Rams have plenty of problems of their own, but somehow I trust that they win this one.

Prediction: Rams win, 24-20

Keenum is what he is at the point. I've been saying it for weeks if not months (yes, definitely months), we've been saying it for much longer.

They refuse to run the ball, negating their best weapon on offense (Todd Gurley) even though that weapon hasn't been shooting off as of this season. It will continue looking utterly bleak and dark.

Prediction: Jets win, 16-10

The Rams have lost four straight and Jeff Fisher is still adamant that Case Keenum will continue to be the starter. Despite the offense only continuing to get worse and worse, the Rams have still not been able to get the ground game going. Fortunately, it seems that through the media, Jeff Fisher has enlightened everyone that he is about to unleash some new ways to get the running game on track for the first time this season. At this point, I don't think anyone believes him anymore, especially more than halfway through the season. The Jets may be a poor team and have even somehow worse quarterback play but the Rams are just that horrendous.

Prediction: Jets win, 21-17

Jets and Rams have the same feeling of the Rams and Lions. A team you'd think they'd be able to beat, but likely about to blow a golden opportunity. In a time when a win is so desperately needed, the Rams face a secondary that's been horrible and Darrelle Revis has arguably been the worst of the bunch. Then the Rams will also be facing a pass game that might actually be more inconsistent than their own. However, their run game has easily outperformed the Rams. But their offensive line will likely be abused by the Rams defensive line. The Jets d-line is legit and gives the Rams a huge run for their money. However it wouldn't be a surprise if RB Todd Gurley finally got off. And even with that being said, there's a good chance the Rams will enter the fourth quarter with the game within three points either way, and when everything is going right and in their favor they'll blow it. Folks should get ready to see QB Jared Goff fairly soon. As the Rams are about to be knocked out of playoff contention much sooner than later.

Prediction: Jets win, 23-17

The Jets are very good against the run and average against the pass, which means Fisher and Boras will once again put this game in the hands of Case Keenum and a group of WR's they continue to blame. Revis Island has been a vacation resort for most teams this year, but I think this is the week it goes back to being a no fly zone. Fitz will do his best to keep the Rams in this one, but in the end, his effort will go for naught.

Prediction: Jets win, 17-14

The Rams defense will force some turnovers, but the offense is so putrid that it won't matter.

Prediction: Jets win, 24-3

We left him there, so that I can say no more of him, but a sound of wailing assailed my ears, so that I turned my gaze in front, intently. The kind Master said: ‘Now, my son, we approach the city they call Dis, with its grave citizens, a vast crowd.’ And I: ‘Master, I can already see its towers, clearly there in the valley, glowing red, as if they issued from the fire.’ And he to me: ‘The eternal fire, that burns them from within, makes them appear reddened, as you see, in this deep Hell.’

We now arrived in the steep ditch, that forms the moat to the joyless city: the walls seemed to me as if they were made of iron. Not until we had made a wide circuit, did we reach a place where the ferryman said to us: ‘Disembark: here is the entrance.’

Prediction: Rams win, 9-6

Forgive me if I don’t think a team that’s constantly being thrown under a bus by their head coach is going to travel across the country and somehow put together a respectable performance this Sunday.

The Rams - a “run first” team - can’t get a generational talent at running back going even when they’re at home. Now they’re on the road against the NFL’s fourth best run-stopping defense.

The winnable stretch of games following the bye (Panthers, Jets, and Dolphins) no longer looks as appetizing as it did a few weeks ago. I can only imagine our predictions a few weeks from now when the Rams take on the Saints, Patriots, Falcons, and Seahawks in consecutive weeks.

Prediction: Jets win, 24-13
