Los Angeles Rams @ Baltimore Ravens
The last time these two played, it was one of the worst NFL football games I’ve ever watched. Now there’s a fair difference between Week 11 of the 2015 regular season and a 2018 preseason opener, but let’s pray this is more entertaining nonetheless.
We’ll get a short look at the new starting lineups with WR Brandin Cooks, DL Ndamukong Suh, CB Marcus Peters and CB Aqib Talib. We’ll get some rotational info and role assignment info. And then it’s on to 53-man roster battles involving much of the Rams’ 2018 NFL Draft class.
Los Angeles Rams v. Oakland Raiders
In what’s shaping up to be the Raiders’ final season in Oakland before relocating to Las Vegas, the LA-based Raider Nation will make this a “fun” one. And it means the Raiders will play in the Coliseum for the first time in 24 years. We’ll have a replay of this in the regular season, but it’ll be in Oakland.
Los Angeles Rams v. Houston Texans
Last year’s contest in Week 10 was setting up to be a great showdown between two young up-and-coming quarterbacks in Rams QB Jared Goff and Texans QB Deshaun Watson, but an ACL injury ended Watson’s, and the Texans’, season. This will likely be our last look at the starters in extended action.
Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints
The Rams head to Nola to finish the preseason in the final opportunity for fringe roster guys to get some good tape and try to either make the team, the practice squad or get scooped up elsewhere. We’ll have to see how the Saints’ 90-man roster looks heading into the preseason to get a sense of this matchup. It’s also one we’ll replay as the Saints are one of the Rams’ away opponents in the regular season:
