The Rams are being given points at home to a two-win team. Not a good look...

The Los Angeles Rams come out of their bye week for a Week 9 home clash against the Carolina Panthers which will be just the third contest of the season at the Coliseum.

Despite the home field advantage, the Rams are three-point underdogs to the Panthers as of this morning to most bookies. That’s a damning statement in general, but it’s made worse by the fact the Panthers have won just two of their first seven games this season. To be an underdog at home to a two-win team in Week 9 is just not a good look no matter how the Rams and Head Coach Jeff Fisher might try to spin it.

Of course, the Rams have the added benefit of having been able to heal up over the bye. Fisher suggested CB Trumaine Johnson and DT Michael Brockers would likely be gametime decisions in his initial post-practice press conference of the week. For the Panthers, QB Cam Newton has been frustrated by the level of physicality he’s been forced to endure this season and the perceived transgressions beyond what the rules allow re: that physicality. I’M SURE THE RAMS WON’T TRY TO STRADDLE THAT THRESHOLD IN THE LEAST...
