Los Angeles Rams at Atlanta Falcons: Bold Predictions

It’s been a tough month for Los Angeles Rams fans.

The real Jared Goff shows up

No, I’m not talking about the Goff that throws for 500+ yards.
No, I’m not talking about the Goff that throws for 78 yards

I’m talking about the Goff that has averaged roughly 275 yards per game and had 60 TDs to 19 INTs in his first two seasons under McVay.

Goff will commit ZERO turnovers and throw for two touchdowns with a pedestrian box score, but lead the Rams to victory.

The Rams defense forces FOUR turnovers

This is all about kicking the Falcons when they’re down. Falcons QB Matt Ryan has been prone to turnovers in the past, and Aaron Donald will terrorize him all day. Bonus: Donald and newly acquired cornerback Jalen Ramsey will account for at least two of the Falcons turnovers.

All three phases score

John Fassel’s special teams units have often been a spark for the Rams in recent years. I think they find a way to score a TD early in the game. Whether it is in the form of a patented Johnny Hekker fake punt or a return TD by JoJo Natson..... I think they score on Sunday.
