The Los Angeles Rams entered the 2019 NFL season tied with a couple other teams for the second easiest strength of schedule in the league.

They took care of business in week one against a Carolina Panthers team that refused to give up and will have to shore up the errors they made if they want a repeat performance in their week two matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

I was a bit surprised when an early season NFC championship rematch wasn’t put into a prime-time slot, but it will be a great game regardless. It’ll be interesting to see if the pundits in New Orleans are validated or vanquished by this weekends results.

Following that showdown, the Rams will travel to Cleveland to face the Browns prior to hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams will pose the Rams with challenges, but neither should be too much trouble for Sean McVay’s squad.

I have a close eye on the Browns game in particular. If the Rams come away with a victory against the Saints, they may have an emotional hangover from a tough game. If they lose, they’ll have the opportunity to prove their mettle in Cleveland.

Either way.... they’ll have a lot to prove.
