In their week 13 showdown, the 10-1 Los Angeles Rams and the 4-7 Detroit Lions are set to face off as teams on two opposite ends of the spectrum. The Rams are among the elite teams in the league and the Lions are a struggling team looking to potentially keep their playoff lives alive.
Let’s take a look at the pregame inactives:

Pretty much all expected here. This means that CB Aqib Talib is officially active and is slated to start the game for the Rams which is superb news for a defense looking for a boost:

Not many surprises here either. The Lions will be missing a sizable chunk of their offense with RB Kerryon Johnson out. They also miss two defensive contributors in CB Teez Tabor and DL Kerry Hyder.
Get ready for game time, the Rams have a shot (a very good one) to clinch the NFC West.
