Week 5 Los Angeles Rams schedule outlook update

New, comments

The Rams are in Seattle this week to assert their dominance.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams showed the NFL world that they are the class of the NFC when they prevailed in a Thursday Night Football shootout in week 4. They kick off a three game road trip in week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks.

While the Rams week 5 matchup provides an opportunity to widen their already large early season advantage in the division, they have some interesting games lying ahead.

While I’m not personally concerned about the Rams road trip, I am concerned about the two games following that stretch. The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints both have their flaws, but can also both best the Rams on any given Sunday.

The Rams could realistically head into their matchup with the Packers at 7-0, but they could also stumble in Seattle or Denver and have a loss or two. We all know what this team is capable of, but there’s a sense that we will learn more about this team as they hit the road in the coming weeks.
