Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans: Live open thread

Now at 6-2 and atop the NFC West, the Rams return to LA for the first time in more than a month with an opportunity to make one final statement before heading into the toughest stretch of football on their schedule.

There's not much to say here. The Los Angeles Rams are at home for the first time in more than a month to take on a dwindling Houston Texas team.

The Rams are heavy favorites here. There's not a huge statement to be made outside of what they're conveyed to the NFL in their last two games, lopsided wins over the Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants.

That statement is simply, "We're ready."

The Rams have games against the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings, the NFC South-leading New Orleans Saints, the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles along with playoff contenders in the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans. The Rams are ready for those challenges.

Today isn't one of those challenges. Today is the return of the Los Angeles Rams to LA, a return that should be heralded for the success Head Coach Sean McVay has led the Rams out to in their 6-2 start.

Today is a game to celebrate what has come before and what lies ahead.

Today is a day for a Rams victory.
