Last week’s loss in New Orleans has to be on the minds of the Los Angeles Rams as the full-strength roster prepares for the Seattle Seahawks. However, the tragic shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA, the same city that the Rams organization calls home, has caused the team to play with heavy hearts. So, RB Todd Gurley and QB Jared Goff are poised to put up some gaudy numbers, that all makes sense. But what about the defense?
Let’s get bold.
S John Johnson III steps up in a big way with a Pick 6 and a forced fumble
For a second year player, JJIII has a lot of pressure on the field. He’s a smart player with a knack for causing turnovers. I predict that John John III will single-handedly put points on the board.
The redemption of CB Marcus Peters will be televised
It hasn’t been the best month in terms of football play for Mr. Peters. However, it seems like he’s in his head and it’s not a physical issue. So, I think the emotion of the game will somehow put things into perspective for him and he’ll play like he did in week one. He may not get a touchdown, but he’ll serve a major role in shutting down QB Russell Wilson.
Dante Fowler Jr. will get a monster sack early on that sets the tone
I’m banking on the defense to surprise and dominate. And if we get some decent Dante Fowler Jr. hype after the game? Fine by me.
Jared Goff throws for 400 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs
You really thought I could go through this whole thing and not throw some love at King Goffrey? Not gonna happen.
Rams fans are gonna love this game because the team is going to play like a Super Bowl caliber team — the toast of the NFL. It’ll be heated, chippy, and completely one-sided. Rams win, 42-9.
