The Rams - under new head coach Sean McVay - also have a chance at making a bit of history on Sunday. In road contests this season, the Rams have scored 235 points. The franchise record for points scored in road games was set in 2001 — by the Greatest Show on Turf (250).
If the Rams can score 16 points against the Titans this weekend, they will break that record. The Rams currently lead the NFL in points per game (31.8). The Titans are allowing 22.8 per contest.
More important than points, however, is simply winning the game and getting the Rams into the playoffs. Can they do it?
The Turf Show Times’ staff make their predictions...
The Rams are rolling right now. They just lost a Pro Bowl kicker in Greg Zuerlein, but as our TST social media said, we will rally behind Ficken and play good football. Mariota is struggling right now, and while he is dangerous on the ground he is turning the ball over at a high rate. I think the Rams' defense will make another statement in a playoff clincher.
Prediction: Rams win, 35-10

Rams head out to Tennessee to face a struggling Titans team who is fighting to hold onto playoff aspirations. LA can’t overlook the Marcus Mariota led team. It has to win to clinch a playoff berth, look up the No. 3 seed.
Prediction: Rams win, 34-10

The Rams travel to Jeff Fisher's ole stomping ground to give the Titans a stomping of their own. The Rams will clinch the NFC West championship after launching an assault via the air and ground.
Prediction: Rams win, 28-17
Tennessee lost to the Cardinals, who are led by a grown man wearing a newsboy cap which is just a dumb as a fedora. Mariota and the offense look flat and not even the no-huddle can help them in this game.
Prediction: Rams win, 35-3

Rams win in a Nashville thriller. Fumbles and INT’s! Goff ends up as the big hero.

I'm ready to taste the playoffs. It's been too long. Todd Gurley will do Gurley things, Aaron Donald will do Aaron Donald things. I think the Titans are a decent team, but after last week the Rams know what they need to do to lock it up.
Prediction: Rams win, 30-13

The Rams are simply too strong for the Titans. Offense continues to click, with Jared Goff and the passing game doing the most damage. The Rams defense continues to string together strong performances, and Aaron Donald continues to state his case for defensive player of the year.
Prediction: Rams win, 38-17

Because Sean McVay.

If rolling into the Clink last week and punching Seattle in the mouth was no problem, consider this an early Christmas present.
Prediction: Rams win 31-17
For the second week in a row, the entire TST staff is picking the Rams to win on the road. It worked well enough in Week 15.
To all the Rams’ fans out there, here’s to a postseason, and to hoping you all have a very merry Christmas. Cheers!
